East Providence - Alberto Garcia Moitoso,88, a cherished father, brother, grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully on December 20, 2023, at Hope Hospice in Providence. Born on September 29, 1935, in the beautiful island of Faial, Azores, Alberto was a man who lived a life full of love, kindness, and thoughtfulness. His journey of 88 years was marked by a deep devotion to his family, his faith, and his community.
Alberto, to those who knew him, was the son of the late Joseph and Angelina (Garcia) Moitoso. He carried the values of his heritage and family throughout his life, values that he passed on to his own children. Alberto was a loving father to Stephen A. Moitoso of Upper Marlboro, MD, Paul Moitoso of Fairhaven, MA, and Christine Dykes of Panama City Beach, FL. He was a doting grandfather to James Paul Moitoso and a beloved brother to Jose Eduardo Moitoso of Taunton, Olga Fernandes of Taunton, MA, Matilda Santos of Raynham, MA, Maria Solome Faria of Taunton, MA, and Idilia Gonsalves of Taunton, MA. His memory will also be treasured by his many nieces and nephews. Alberto was predeceased by his siblings Jose Moitoso, Manuel Moitoso, Mario Moitoso, and Maria Manuela Cunha.
For over 30 years, Alberto dedicated his career to Texas Instruments as a forklift operator before his well-earned retirement. His work ethic and commitment to his job were exemplary, and he was well-respected by his colleagues and friends. His involvement in his work community left a lasting impression on those who had the pleasure of working alongside him.
Alberto made East Providence his home for more than 40 years after moving from Taunton. His presence in the community was felt by many, especially at St. Francis Xavier Church, where he was a devout parishioner. His faith was an integral part of his life, and he found great joy in traveling to religious sites around the world, which was one of his many passions.
An avid fisherman, Alberto could often be found enjoying the serenity of the sea. His love for fishing was only matched by his love for his family and his faith. He cherished the simple moments in life, whether it was a quiet day by the water or a family gathering filled with laughter and stories.
Those who were fortunate enough to know Alberto would describe him as a loving, kind, and thoughtful man. His gentle nature and warm smile were a comfort to all. He was a pillar of strength for his family, a guiding light for his children, and a gentle soul who enriched the lives of those around him.
Alberto's legacy will live on through the lives of his family and the many people he touched throughout his remarkable life. He will be deeply missed, but the memories he created with those he loved will continue to bring smiles and comfort for years to come.
As we say farewell to Alberto Garcia Moitoso, we celebrate a life well-lived, a journey complete, and a heart that loved without measure. His story is one of unwavering faith, enduring love, and the quiet strength that lies in kindness. May he rest in peace, and may his spirit continue to inspire us all.
