J. FERNANDO CARVALHO
It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Fernando, devoted husband and loving father, son, son-in-law, brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend.
Fernando passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at Saint Boniface Hospital after a lengthy battle with brain cancer
Left to mourn his passing are his loving wife Angela of 29 years and his sons Joshua (Whitney) and Jesse (Andrea); as well as his mother Alice, brothers Eduardo (Maria), Tony (Sherry), Paul and sisters Hortensi, Dulce (Anibal), his mother-in-law Phyllis, brother-in-law Steve (Kathy) and sister-in-law Sheryl (Myles) and many nieces and nephews and cherished friends.
Fernando was predeceased by his father Manuel and father-in-law Steve
Fernando was born on October 4, 1958 in Amoreiras Bretanha Azores Portugal. He, along with his mother and his siblings immigrated to Canada in November 1971 to join his father already in Winnipeg.
In his younger years, Fernando enjoyed riding his motorcycle, snowmobiling, hanging out with his friends and watching sports, especially hockey. His favorite teams were the Minnesota Vikings but most importantly the Winnipeg Jets. He loved watching the Jets play.
He enjoyed camping when his boys were younger. Traveling, dinner parties and making Chorizo with his closest friends, Joe and Tereza. And having lengthy conversations about anything and everything with his brother Tony.
He loved playing outside and sharing yogurt, apple and cheese with Piper, his puppy. Fernando’s favorite place was home, spending time with family and friends.
Fernando had various employers throughout his life but the one that he was most proud of working for was Manitoba Hydro. Although he worked away from home he took pride in his work, loved what he did and made lots of lasting friendships.
Fernando you will be sorely missed by Angie, Josh and Jesse. You were very proud of your family especially your boys and you took great pride in your home. You were a strong and fair man that we could always count on, you made us laugh and smile. You are loved and will be missed by all your family and cherished friends
