Carlos Baltazar, 70 passed away at Emanuel Medical Center on Friday. Carlos was born to Juan and Sarah Baltazar in Pocatello, Idaho, and has lived in Turlock for 43 years. Many know him best from the 45 years he spent serving his community as as a Barber; 43 of those years were spent as the owner/barber of his own barber shop on West Main.
