Carlos Muro

 Carlos Muro, 52, passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 19, 2011.  He was born in Zacatecas, Mexico, on January 1, 1959, and immigrated to Los Angeles in 1968 with his mother and two sisters.  Having to assume the role of patriarch early on, he delivered newspapers and worked as a vendor at Dodger Stadium to help support his mother and siblings.  He graduated in 1976 from Abraham Lincoln Senior High School where he excelled in academics and played on the varsity basketball team.  In 1981, he earned a BA in Sociology, with an emphasis in workplace counseling, from Cal State Northridge.

After working his way through college as a Sears’s appliance repairman, Carlos pursued a career as a vocational rehabilitation consultant.  In 1988, he started his own Los Angeles-area business, Advance Vocational Evaluators, which he successfully ran for 17 years. Then, he earned a designation in Professional Disability Management from the Insurance Educational Association before joining Sedgwick CMS, Inc., where he worked as a benefits liaison for the past four years.

Carlos was known among his family, friends and colleagues as a man of integrity, honor, and great generosity.  He was warm, kind, selfless, and always the devoted husband, father, and son.  He exemplified the deep Catholic faith that his mother, Elisa Andrade, instilled in him, and he regularly attended services at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church.

In addition to his family, Carlos treasured his life-long friends Steve Moser and Henry De La Rosa whom he considered his brothers.  He was an avid golfer and sports enthusiast, and he will always be remembered as the life of the party. 

He is survived by his wife, Lynne; his daughters, Monique and Julia; his sisters, Lupe and Gracie; and his beloved dogs, Duke and Taylor.  He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. 

A vigil will be held on Friday, March 25 from 7:00 PM to 9:00PM at Forest Lawn Memorial at 1712 So. Glendale Ave, Glendale. The funeral service will be held at 9:00 AM on Saturday, March 26 at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church at 2411 Montrose Ave, Montrose.
