Mike G. Carrillo

September 29, 1934 — December 21, 2022

With humble acceptance of God's will, we announce the passing of Miguel "Mike" G. Carrillo, on December 21, 2022, at the age of 88. Born on September 29, 1934, to Jose M. Carrillo and Exequia Gonzales Carrillo. Mike was the 3rd born of 12 children.

Mike is survived by his beloved wife, Janie DeLeon Carrillo and his 2 loving children, Melissa Carrillo-Guerrero and Miguel Carrillo, Jr (Melissa).

The pride and joy of Mike's life were his grandchildren, Zacharias, Christian and Ethan Guerrero and Mariah and Miguel Carrillo III.

He is further survived by brothers: Joe G. Carrillo, Deacon Nick Carrillo (Velma) and Abel Carrillo; sisters: Maria Pierce (Martin), Dora Luera and Janie Calderon (Steve). He is also survived by numerous nephews, nieces, his music family and many friends.

Music was a huge part of Mike's life. He was a Pioneer in Conjunto Music. He was a Master on the accordion and the bajo sexto. For years he taught countless students on behalf of the Seguin Teatro de Artes. In 2019 he received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

He is preceded in death by parents, Jose M. Carrillo and Exequia Gonzales Carrillo, Teodora L. Carrillo; brothers: Joe L. Carrillo, Eleazar G. Carrillo, Jesse L. Carrillo and Julian G. Carrillo, Sr. and sister, Bertha Miranda.

Mike was a true Warrior for God. He believed and lived God's Word, passing that belief on to everyone he met. Our loss is Heaven's greatest gain.

"It is not Death that will come to fetch me, it is the good God. Death is no phantom, no horrible specter, as presented in pictures. In the catechism it is stated that Death is the separation of body and soul, that is all!  Well, I am not afraid of a separation which will unite me to the good God forever."

-St. Therese of Lisieux
