Obituary

On Monday November 11th 2019, Manuel Madruga passed away peacefully at the age of 86. Manuel was a loving father to Carlos and Jorge Madruga and loving husband to wife Sharon O’Rourke. Manuel was born on January 11th 1933 in Pico Azores, Portugal where he was an accomplished whaler until his late 20’s. He emigrated to Canada in 1960 to provide a better life for his family. He is also survived by his sister Gisela Da Silva, grandchildren Jonathan, Brittney, Meghann, Jordan, Courtney and great grandchildren Boston and Morgan.
His smile, advice, unconditional love and ability to tell it like it is will sorely be missed.

Dear Sharon and family: Our hearts are heavy to hear of Manuel's passing. We are so fortunate to have had him as a friend for so many years. He was such a kind and caring individual, loved his family and was always here to help when you needed it, without being asked, and always with that wonderful smile. We hope your happy memories of Manuel will ease your pain. May he rest in peace.
With our love, Marlene and Ken Greenbury.

My condolances to Sharon and the rest of Manuel's family. He was the most outdoor loving person I ever knew. And I was so impressed by his whaling days, who else do you know has ever done that. And he was a good husband to my sister. Have a good journey Manuel. Cameron O'Rourke
