Just arriving to his winter home in Largo, Florida, Jose F Dias suddenly passed on to his eternal reward on December 7, 2021 at the age of 74.
Jose is survived by his loving wife Linda of 47 years, his 4 children, Alan Mendoza (Cindy), Joe Dias Reis (Alyssa), Anthony aka Tony Dias (Shawna) and Amber Dias-Almeida. Jose also had 14 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
Born in Sao Miguel, Azores, Portugal and living in Santa Maria, Azores until the age of 19 when he moved to Fall River, Massachusetts. Moving several times to follow work he lived in Wareham, Ma, Colorado, Nova Scotia and back to Attleboro, Ma before retiring and relocating to Prince Edward Island, Canada. He played semi pro soccer in his younger years and became a proud and artistic, hard working brick layer working for Local 3 in Boston. Jose so loved his family, his friends and his Church of the Nazarene where he ushered and greeted people with his contagious smile and his friendliness. His quickness to pick up conversation brought him many friends wherever he went.
Jose will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Thankful now he is resting in the arms of Jesus.
A memorial celebration will take place at Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene in Wareham, Ma on December 30,2021 and later memorial celebrations to follow in PEI and Nova Scotia, Canada.
