Pete was born in Roswell to Pedro Antonio Carrasco and Alice Montoya Carrasco on April 2, 1969. Pete loved his children dearly and spent as much time with them as possible. In his spare time, he would be in the outdoors, hunting, fishing and camping with family and friends. He was a happy person with a smile on his face, well liked by all who knew him. He will be missed by all who love him.
Those left behind to cherish his memory are his wife of the family home, Christina Carrasco; his parents, Pedro and Alice Carrasco; his son, Pedro Antonio Carrasco III, his fiancÃ©e, Jessenia Zepeda, and their daughter, Alexia Carrasco; twin daughters, Dominique and Angelique Carrasco; the mother of his children, Rita Vargas; two stepsons, Israel Vigil and Mario Vigil Jr., both of the family home; one sister, Vicky Leyva; one niece, Faithe Leyva; maternal grandparents, Fermin and Goldie Montoya; paternal grandmother, Julia Carrasco, of Hagerman; and numerous aunts, uncles, and close friends. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Presillano Carrasco Jr.; and one uncle, Vincent Montoya.
The family would like to give a special â€œThank Youâ€ to the Roy Vargas family for all the love and support they have shown throughout his life.
