It is with profound sorrow and heartbreak that we announce the passing of José de Medeiros Aguiar.
Born in Porto Formoso, S. Miguel, Azores (Portugal), José passed away surrounded by his family on
May 27, 2018 at Royal Columbian Hospital, in B.C. at the age of 66.
He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Rosa, his children Jimmy, Jerry, and Linda (Nelson),
his siblings Eduardo, Luisa (António), Filomena (Manuel), António (Aldina), Luis (Samia),
his many nieces and nephews, and his friends both locally and abroad. José was an extremely hard
working and generous man who took tremendous pride in his Stucco business and serving his community,
including being a proud leader of the Grupo Folclorico Ilha Verde Cultural Association. José was a devout
family man with a strong faith in Christ. His love for soccer (specifically Benfica and the Portugal national team)
was unmatched, as was his enthusiasm for history, politics, and geography. Prayers and Mass of Christian burial
will be celebrated at 10:00 AM on Monday, June 4, 2018 at Our Lady of Fatima Parish, 1423 East 13th Ave, Vancouver, BC.
Entombment to follow at Forest Lawn Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation are
graciously appreciated in honour of José Aguiar.
