Miguel Da Ponte Viveiros


July 31, 1929 – April 6, 2008


 


 


It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Miguel (Mike)


at Vancouver General Hospital after a brave battle with cancer.


Mike is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Maria Eulalia,


daughters: Maria Paula (Ed) and Eulalia Maria, and grandchildren:


Amanda, Raymond, Spencer and Tiffany. Born in Sao Miguel,


Azores, as the 4th of 9 children, he immigrated to Hamilton, Ontario,


Canada in 1954 and continued to work in farming and construction


while traveling west.  He made Vancouver his home in 1956


because he liked the weather.  He faced and overcame the challenges


of adapting to a new country, culture and language and through hard


work in landscaping, he built a prosperous and secure life for his


family in Canada.  Mike was warm-hearted, charismatic and a


memorable figure known for his good humour and sharing anecdotes


with his strong voice.  He loved making and sharing his red wine,


enjoyed good food and always welcomed social gatherings with family


and friends. The family is grateful for the excellent care and attention


Mike received in Palliative Care at VGH. Prayers will be said 7:30 pm


Wednesday April 9, 2008 at Our lady of Fatima Parish 1423 E.13th Ave.


Vancouver, BC where Mass of Christian Burial will be Celebrated


10:00 am Thursday April 10. Rev. Antonio Deangelis celebrant,
