Carlos was born in New Bedford, MA to the late Carlos Antonio Spencer and the late Maria Jose (DjeDje) Fernandes Saldarriaga. He is survived by sister, Maria T. Spencer, ½ brother Autilio A. Spencer, and ½ sister Octilia Spencer Tavares, 1st cousins Warren, Russell, & Jeffrey Marques, Vanessa A. Marques & her daughter Felicity Marques Mercedes.
Carlos lived in Dorchester, MA and worked in the restaurant business as a waiter, with a thorough knowledge of food & wine, a style, charm, and panache that made him extraordinary with his guests for 20+ years. He was adored by many of his colleagues and friends at Radius, in Boston and the last 5 years as Captain at L’Espalier, in Boston until 2018 when he fell ill.
Carlos loved to travel. Of the favorites, his beloved Paris, France. His cousin will be fulfilling his final wish to return for his 11th & final time, to spread a small portion of his cremains with close friends Spring 2020. Carlos’ cremains will be interred together with his mother.
