         José da Silva Alves


José passed away peacefully on April 18th,

surrounded by his loving family after a

courageous battle with cancer. 

Predeceased by brothers Antonio, Alexandre

and brother-in-law Alberto and remembered

by his wife Maria, daughter Maria (Brett),

son Eusébio (Kiki), his two grandsons,

Joey and Grant as well as Florinda (José),

Alfredo (Isaura), Helena, Fernando (Lourdes),

Lucinda, Ilda, many nieces and nephews

and numerous friends from his beloved

São Jorge da Beira.  Many thanks to

Drs Collette, Ong and McGowan and the

wonderful caregivers at Raven Song,

VGH Palliative and Evergreen.  Simply put,

José was one of the most incredible people

you could ever wish to meet.  His smile and

twinkling eyes instantly warmed the hearts

of virtually everyone he encountered. 

José’s family and friends meant more than

anything to him and he will be dearly missed

and the loss is only softened by the knowledge

that he is in a better place. 

Prayers and funeral service will be held at

Our Lady of Fatima, 1423 East 13th Avenue,

Vancouver, BC on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 10am. 

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent

to the BC Thoracic Surgery Foundation or the charity of your choice.
