Carlos was born in Pico de Pedra, Acores, Portugal and immigrated to Canada in 1969 with his young family. He was an accomplished carpenter and builder. He and Margaret enjoyed sharing many Portuguese traditions with his children and grandchildren and was fortunate to take many family trips. He enjoyed gardening, smoking sausages and sharing his harvests with family and friends. He was a faithful servant to All Saints Parish in Strathroy throughout his many years in Canada. Special thanks to the staff of Strathmere Lodge in Strathroy for providing such excellent care for Carlos and continuing care for his beloved Margaret.
