Carlos Samuel Christian Sr.
Nov. 16, 1934 – Jan. 16, 2014

NICE, Calif. – Carlos Samuel Christian Sr., 79, passed away peacefully at home in Nice.

Carlos was born in Mexico City, Mexico and moved to Lakeport as a young man.

He gained citizenship through enlisting in the armed forces. Upon honorable discharge he returned to Lakeport, purchased and leased pear orchards, following proprietorship of a restaurant, gas station and a farm labor contracting business.

Carlos loved laughing, socializing, tinkering in his shop, gardening, napping in hammocks, canning, Calvin & Hobbes, nature, teaching his children chess, reading and morning coffee at The Mecca.

His love of cooking was shown as he sang and danced in the kitchen. Carlos had a whistle that could be heard over 50 acres and was never replicated.

During his retirement years he spent his days treasure hunting in the mountains of central Mexico.

His presence will be missed.

Beloved brother, father, uncle, grandfather and great-grandfather, “Papa,” “El Gallo,” “Viejo” is survived by his brother, Jose (Gail); sons, Carlos Jr. (Yunhee), Alfonso, Paul (Ann) Neumann; daughters, Sonja Safrans, Diana (Mark) Johnson, Corina (Terry) Hull; 14 grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews all of California.

Private services will be held at Chapel of the Lakes in Lakeport.
