Carlos Mendoza Obituary, Death – Carlos Mendoza of Dallas Texas has unexpectedly passed away. On the 21st of August, he was born in Mesa, Arizona, to his parents, Carlos Mendoza and Hilda Mendoza. His grandparents were also named Mendoza. Because Carlos enjoyed making music so much, in 1959 he became a member of the pop duo “Skip and Flip” and released a number of singles. On the Billboard Hot 100 list, two of these hits, “It Was I” and “Cherry Pie,” both peaked at position #11 respectively.

In October of 1960, Carlos enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He completed a total of two tours of duty throughout his time in the Marine Corps, with one of those deployments being spent in Vietnam. After that, he completely uprooted his life and started a barbershop called “The Barber Nook” in Bloomington, Minnesota. Over the course of the next thirty or so years and beyond, Carlos forged a large number of long relationships with families and consumers, many of which spanned many generations.

In 1982, Carlos wed the lady who would go on to become the love of his life, Tina Mendoza, and they began their life together as husband and wife.  Carlos continued to perform music throughout his entire life, performing concerts at a broad array of locales spread out around the Twin Cities area.
