Carlos Payan

October 29, 1984 - August 6, 2007

Carlos grew up on a small cattle ranch in Sinoloa, Mexico. A quiet young man who tended to be shy, his mother thought he was too generous. "He sent too much of his pay home to me each month."

Beloved by his brothers and sisters, Carlos loved his nieces and nephews, with whom he spent much of his time. He was also proud of his car, a Mustang.

A miner for three years, Carlos was 22 years old.
