My deepest sympathy for your family. I remember your Dad from the corner store. A man filled with compassion and love for everyone he came in contact with. He is remember by me for all his kindness when I was a child growing up, he always smiled greeted us all by name and let me work the candy showcase one afternoon and that is one of my most precious memories as a child. I will hold onto forever.

Condolences from Jim Souza and Family to the Araujo Family on the passing of my long time friend Angelo. Myself, Joe Coutinho, and John Alves played golf with Angelo every week (weather permitting) for more than 30 years and we always had a great time - especially the 19th hole in the Clubhouse at Green valley and the various stops along the drive back to New Bedford! We all got along great despite our many hotly contested golf matches which we enjoyed very much. The memories of our golfing years were numerous and I will never forget the good fun we enjoyed. God bless you Ang.

I had spoken with Angelo a few years ago. I expressed our sympathy for the loss of Hilda.
We had a pleasant conversation and I recalled the birth of John. I recalled that Gilly was a coin collector and when he helped at Santana’s. Gilly always served out bigger ice cream cones to the kids.
I worked at Santana’s Variety during Ottiwell school lunch breaks and after school selling candy, stocking shelves and doing some cleanup in the back room.
One one occasion I asked Angelo to help me by intervening and get my pay from the Feast Carnival Managers. The French Fry concession stand owner had hauled without paying me my $18.
Angelo walked down to the lower Feast grounds from Santana’s with me in tow. He found all the carnival guys counting their money in their trailer and making preparations to leave the Feast grounds.
Angelo said, “you guys owe this kid some wages!”
Angelo looked at the guy in charge and said, “pay the kid!”
The manager asked how much? I said, “$18.” He paid me and we left.
Angelo was a great neighbor and often carried our grocery bill on his tab credit.

Angelo’s US Naval service in the Pacific almost parallels mine in 65-68.
He served in the Pacific on a destroyer tender repair-ship the USS Alcor AD-34 as a signalman.

Please accept our sincere sympathy and heartfelt prayers.
