  1. I just noticed this obituary today. Carmen was one of my best friends at St. Francis grade school in Cleveland. We used to tease each other and I always wanted to taste his lunches because they always smelled so good. Real Italian lunch meat. His picture looks much like I remember him. He had a great sense of humor and always made me laugh. I was heavy and he never made fun of me. A true friend in every way. I am sorry for your loss. While Carmen was in Vietnam I was in the National Guard attending all the college riots in Ohio. We may have lost touch but the memories will last forever. Ron Skrajner
