Mark Jeffrey Carbahal passed away peacefully on Sept. 18, 2017 in Woodland at the age of 58. Mark was born in Woodland on May 30, 1959.

The son of a local Spanish fruit farmer, Mark grew up and went to school in Winters and was a proud graduate of Winters High School. He made many friends in his youth playing high school sports and raising animals on a small farm just outside of Winters, where he worked for his mother and father on an apricot orchard.  Mark would remain in Winters for years but eventually moved to Woodland and then Esparto before he passed.

He enjoyed camping on the coast and Tahoe, fishing at Putah Creek and more than anything, he loved spending time with his children and grandchildren who were always excited to join him on these adventures. He was known by his friends and family as a man with a huge heart who would do anything to help those that he loved so dearly.

Going all the way back to his high school years, Mark’s closest friends would say that he was a great listener and was always there as a friend if they ever needed a shoulder to cry on. Mark was always excited to watch his children and grandchildren play and compete in swimming, football, T-ball, soccer, volleyball and basketball.

Mark is the son of Mike and Dorothy Carbahal, and is survived by his brothers Mike and Noel, his son Jeffrey, (and his wife Heather), son Joseph, (and his wife Crystal) and his son Michael, and his daughters Danielle, Lisa and Tawny. Mark is also survived by his granddaughters Erin and Taylor, and grandsons Ethan, Evan, Demetrio, Decklin and Ronnie.

A service will be held at the Winters Cemetery on Thursday, Oct. 5, at 11 a.m. There will also be a Celebration of Life at the Green River park, located at 4513 Putah Creek Road in Winters from 12:30-3:30 p.m. after the service.
