Carlos Arthur Perales
February 1981 ~ March 2022
Carlos was born in Turlock and graduated from Turlock High School in 1999. He worked for City of Turlock as a utility maintenance worker for 20 years. He also enjoyed working the last 15 years for the Stanislaus County Fair as a “people mover” driving board members and others from place to place. Carlos volunteered his time as a member of the chain gang for Turlock and Pitman High School football games. He also enjoyed coaching many of his daughters’ softball teams over the years.
Family always came first for Carlos and he treasured time spent with them. He also enjoyed good food, all things Disney, hunting, fishing, baseball, softball, golf and camping trips. His family and friends will remember most his contagious smile and laugh. Carlos was always a kid at heart and never let the “adult” world jade his positivity.
He is survived by his wife Andrea Perales; parents Gloria and Steve Perales; children Kayleen Zayehmoureh, Christian Zayehmoureh, Carina Perales, Brandon Perales and Jason Perales; siblings Olivia Ramirez, Steve “Stevie” Perales, Michael Perales and Arthur Perales; numerous nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins.
