elevated Yrhsq The man of many names born January 21 1956.. Jose, Manuel, Joe-Manuel, Joe, Manny, Joseph, Papa Joe, brother, son, Tio, Vovo, and my fav: Dad, has passed away at 65 years old on January 24 2021 after a battle with cancer.
elevated Yrhsq Anyone who knew him by one of these names knew he had a heart of gold. Joe would give and never expect anything in return. A true angel on earth has passed.
elevated Yrhsq Reunited with predeceased wife Ludovina R Matos, parents Americo Matos & Alzira Corriera, Helio Matos (brother), Clint R Matos (son), Virgilio (nephew)
elevated Yrhsq Leaving behind, Brothers: Joe, Angelo, John Paul, Armando. Sister: Lucia.

elevated Yrhsq Will be remembered by many extended family members; brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces and nephews, friends, friends who became family and those who he left an imprint on their heart.
elevated Yrhsq Joe worked as a dock manager for over 20 years at waterpark place. He also worked countless cleaning jobs his whole life. He loved movies, music, and his family. This man was always taking care of his loved ones everyday, no matter what.
elevated Yrhsq Someone once asked “why do you work so hard” we respond so quick to say, “because I am my fathers daughter.”
elevated Yrhsq Jose was such an empathetic soul. If he saw a loved one crying, he would surely cry too. He felt what they were feeling, and would do whatever he could in that moment to help however he could.
elevated Yrhsq See, do not pray for his place in heaven, because his spot has been most definately granted. We pray for him to watch over us and to be reunited one day in heaven.
elevated Yrhsq In the blink of an eye, everything can change. So forgive often and love with all your heart. Take no one for granted. For you never know what may happen tomorrow.
elevated Yrhsq FAMOUS QUOTES:
elevated Yrhsq “Money talks, bullshit walks.” If you knew our dad, you knew he should have had this tattooed across his chest. I swear he said this in his sleep once.
elevated Yrhsq The sad reality of this saying is “only money will do, the rest of it is bullshit.” Papa Joe worked endlessly day in, day out. Why? Theres too many reasons why. The top reasons being his golden heart, and empathetic soul.
elevated Yrhsq Now is his time to rest in peace. We will miss you, dad, every hour of everyday.
elevated Yrhsq A private Funeral Service will take place on Saturday, January 30, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. Please click the link below to stream the Funeral Service
