Our dad filled our home with love kindness and laughter. He enjoyed Portuguese Fado music and food and loved traveling back to his homeland of Madeira yearly to reconnect with family and friends. He loved to tell stories and reminisce about the old days. He enjoyed watching futebol and cheering on his favourite teams “Sporting” & “Nacional”. Our father was a wonderful thoughtful soul who always cared about those less fortunate and helping family and friends when he could.
