Carlos will be remembered as a loving and dedicated husband, father, grandfather and brother. He will be so deeply missed by his family, friends and all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by his loving wife of 43 years, Linda Goven Granger; daughters, Victoria Lynn Granger of Scott, and Christiana Lynn Granger of Worcester, MA; siblings, Lloyd Granger, Jr., Pamela Granger, Janell Triche and husband, Ted all of Houston, TX, Rodney Granger of New Orleans and Cally Granger Sensat of San Antonio, TX; grandchildren, Cameron Kenney and Teagan Foley; sisters and brother in-law, Sandy Johnson and husband, Kenny, Donna Goven, and Kevin Goven all of Worcester, MA; nieces and nephews, Amanda Salmon, Stefanie Silva, Justin and Amber Goven, Blake and Derek Triche, and Lennox and Ellis Salmon.
