Carlos A. Herrera

August 14, 1938 ~ November 17, 2018 (age 80)

Carlos Herrara Alamo, age 80, passed away peacefully on November 17, 2018 at Yale New Haven Hospital surrounded by his loving family.

Carlos Herrera Alamo was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on August 14, 1938.  He married Angela Graulau Martinez on January 28, 1970. Their generations are Omar Herrera Graulau, Gildemar Isa Herrera Graulau, and Alana Herrera Graulau. His wife came to live in the Bronx, New York a few months before to open doors, bringing their children to Upstate New York, Mountaindale (winter of 1979) to find a better standard of living for the whole family. Mountaindale is a hamlet in the town of Fallsburg in Sullivan County, New York, United States, situated at an altitude of 1,010 feet.

There were times of great struggle, followed by living a few months later in Liberty, New York. Adjusting to weather changes and lack of labor, Carlos began working at a chicken poultry farm in Livingston Manor, New York, an hour distance from Liberty, New York. Compared to his position as an ITT Telephone Company Spervisor in Puerto Rico this was a great sacrifice while trying to find better schooling and a future for their children. He wanted for everyone in the family to learn a second language “English.”

A few Years later in 1982, an unknown radio station from Bridgeport, Connecticut was reaching our area. Pastor Armando Hernandez from the Second Star of Jacob (today know as “Estrella Respandeciente de Jacob) was preaching and transmitting the radio show “Dando Gracias a Dios.”  Carlos and Angela decided to contact him, and a few months later, moved again, this time to James St, New Haven, Connecticut.  He help build, with his son, the foundation of the new temple Second Star of Jacob on 201 Chapel Street in New Haven, Connecticut.

His last years of labor were at Rockbestos Company, Mitchell Drive, New Haven where he performed electrical wiring fabrication for various utility companies.  Everyone in the family was becoming young adults and began to push forward for a better education and financial stability.  Carlos Herrera Alamo left a legacy of hard work, and love for his family.

In his final moments here before he passed away, he was on his way to get for milk for his wife, Angela Herrera Graulau. He was a faithfull husband until death parted us.  He helped those who wanted to receive advice, serving the Lord quietly and humbly.
