Obituary

Carlos Etienne Luster was born May 15, 1968, 
to Stanley G. and L. Mary Luster. Being the third of four children, 
Carlos had to make his presence known amongst his siblings, Jose 
and Malinda. His brother, Stanley Jr., departed the family at a 
young age. In tribute to our son, we want the world to know that 
your family and friends have great memories of you, love you with 
all our hearts and are saddened but grateful for the memories of 
our times together. 
To share with everyone, Carlos was an inquisitive, creative 
young man from the beginning. He experienced the joys of 
camping, fishing, baseball, and cooking, to say the least. Another 
developmental talent, which he picked up from his grandfather, 
was learning to work on things, thus becoming a handyman under 
his guidance. This dubbed him the title “Fix All,” fixing, painting, 
and troubleshooting repair items and projects, whatever was either 
broken or in need of attention. This talent was thoroughly utilized 
at Original Providence Baptist Church, among other duties such 
as security, lawn, and property maintenance.
Carlos met, captured the heart of, and married the love of his life, 
Angela Nutmall, in 2014. They enjoyed eight memorable years 
together. 
Carlos lived his life as he chose to enjoy it. He was a husband, son, 
sibling, grandson uncle, and friend, as well as a surrogate relative 
to many at Original Providence. Carlos had a respectful mindset, 
was a great person, and would walk a mile to assist anyone. There 
would be at times communicable conversations using the general 
phrase “Whatever.”
Carlos departed this life on September 13, 2022, to live with his 
Heavenly Father. He joined his brother, Stanley Jr., and uncle, Alex. 
Carlos leaves to honor his memory: his loving wife, Angela; 
parents, Stan and Mary Luster; siblings, Jose (Kim) and Malinda; 
grandmother, Ernestine Strickland; aunts, Joann (Donald) Lee, 
Kristine McNair, Gloria Jean McNair, Robin Tina Strickland, 
Regina Strickland, Antoinette Currin, Dorothy Jean Penn, and 
Theresa Davis; uncles, Rodney Collier, Clarence Collier, Jr., 
Michael Collier, Larry Strickland, and Ronald Strickland; nephews 
and nieces, Steven, Yasmine, D’yontae, Shania, Talyilah, Tamiah, 
Sherrick, and Imani; great-nephews, Tramaine and Mitchell; and 
a host of cousins, other relatives, and friends.
