Obituary – Jose “Joe” Carvalho

Jose “Joe” Carvalho, aged 93, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, at Norfolk General Hospital. He was dearly loved by his late partner, Bessie Florence Smith, who passed away in 2015. Joe was a stepfather to James Smith (Minnie), Russell Smith (Daphne), and Shirley Atlee (Richard). He was adored by his grandchildren, James Jr., Jacqueline (James), Karen (Andrea), Josh (Jessica), and Jeremy (Sarah), and his great-grandchildren, Zack, Jacilyn, Spencer, Liam, Riley, and Hayden. Joe was preceded in death by his parents, Francisco and Maria Carvalho, and his sister, Maria Lurdes Carvalho. He will be greatly missed by his brother, Manuel Sousa Carvalho, and his wife Maria Silva Carvalho, as well as their children Jose Manuel Silva Carvalho and Manuel Francisco Silva Carvalho, along with many other relatives and friends.

Joe had an immense love for his small farm and devoted most of his waking hours to tending the land, mowing grass, and pruning trees. He held a deep affection for his neighbors, who consistently showed him kindness and support. A special bond was formed between Joe and Joe Lopes and his family, including Tena, Josie, Justin, and Miley. They treated him as their own and provided unwavering care and attention. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Tena Lopes for her exceptional assistance and dedication over the past three weeks. Papa cherished you, and your presence brought immense comfort.
