Carlos Enrique Mahecha

April 17, 1941 — November 7, 2019

Carlos Enrique Mahecha of Ellenville, NY, passed away on Thursday, November 7, 2019 surrounded by his family at Orange Regional Medical. He was 78 years old. Carlos was born on April 17, 1941 in Caparrapi, Colombia; he was the son of Ventura and Casiana (Fandiño) Mahecha.


Carlos had worked as a machine operator for JM Originals in Ellenville. Carlos passion was soccer but what made him most happy was to see his family succeed in all aspects of life.  He portrayed joy, kindness, love, patience, faithfulness, peace, gentleness, goodness and self-control.  He loved going for walks with his grandchildren.  He always made himself useful around his children’s home.  He enjoyed sharing memorable events with his family.  

A soccer fanatic every Sunday took territorial attachment of the TV remote control to watch his favorite team play.  We could hear him yell at the TV when his team was not playing to his liking.  The rest of the time, he spent it playing and scratching lottery tickets but his biggest joy was getting his hands greasy fixing his own car or someone else’s.
