He was born in Monticello, UT on April 3, 1976 to Martha and Don Mose Jr.
He resided in Blanding, UT with his family as a toddler. Later, in 1979, the member moved to Mexican Hat, UT, where he spent most of his elementary years.

Carlos was always very involved in everyday life. He cherished the outdoors and never wasted a minute going hiking, camping, fishing, and tubing down the San Juan River. Monument valley was his treasured place of interest, he would consistantly bring his peers to.
During his free time Carlos acquired an interest in photography. He also took classes to amplify his shots. His devotion got him a job as a photographer in Albuquerque.
When Carlos came back to Mexican Hat, he worked as a tour guide with the Trailhander Tour CO. He adored his new profession. He was most enthusiastic about meeting new people from around the world. For his tours he did entertainment as well. He played the Native flute and performed songs from Pow-Wows for his visitors.
Carlos has touched many lives in his short time here on earth. We will miss his photos in the San Juan Record, his loud laughter, his entertaining jokes, his lovable kindness to everyone around him, for the most part he will be greatly missed. He was a huge part of our hearts and our being.
