Please accept our deepest condolences. Poppa Joe was a big part of our life growing up and even our children knew him. We will remember his rhymes, his laugh and he taught me to put Pepsi in his wine so that I could drive after. Joe would give us his beans from the garden and he would not take no for an answer! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Take care! Kelly, Luciano, Alana and Mariah.
My condolences to you Joe and your family. He was a very nice man in the few visits I had with you and your family. Nickname blonde 😊
Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers during this difficult time. Tio Bernardino was very special to me...his smile could warm a room and his laugh was contagious. I’ll always remember his poetry, dancing with him at weddings (in particular the Steve Urkel dance!), his ability to make us laugh until we cried and of course, the visits in Huntsville that were so special to me. I take comfort in knowing that he is reunited with our loved ones in heaven and that he is free....May he rest in peace. Xo. Sylvia (“Sophia”)
Our love goes to Joe Jr. Teresa and all of the family. Such a beautiful person has left us. We met big Joe later in life through our cousin Mary, friend of Joe Jr. and we came to know and love him for the caring, loving and generous man that he was. He always welcomed our company and we always enjoyed his stories. He's with our beloved Mary now and together they're watching over us.
My dear uncle Bernardino Joe Arruda you will be truly missed.
My condolences to my aunt and cousins.
Alfredo, Emanuel (Lynn) & Maria Cabral
