Carlos Barientos III was born at 6:45 on the evening of Dec. 31, 1964, a few miles northwest of Honolulu.were part of the largest, most prosperous, best-educated and, some might say, most indulged and indulgent generation that the world has ever seen.There are stark differences within the boomer generation. Early boomers – beginning with Kathleen Casey-Kirschling, whose birth at one second past midnight on New Year's Day, 1946, has made her a minor celebrity – grew up surrounded by the hippie counterculture, the music of the Beatles and Bob Dylan, and the Vietnam war.In fact, Barientos, who owns and run his own guitar shop with his father, does not readily identify himself as a baby boomer.By 2031, when Barientos and the rest of the baby boomers are retired, more than 20 percent of the population of the United States will be at least 65 years old, compared with only 13 percent in 2010 .Barientos' claim to be the last U.S. boomer rests on Hawaii's position as America's most westerly state in a time zone located two hours behind the Pacific coast.
