José Ferreira Aires of Danbury Connecticut passed away on October 2nd, at the age of 94, after a short battle with cancer. He was born in Gouveia, Portugal to Antonio and Maria Prazeres Aires.

He married his true love Regina on August 18, 1948. Regina then immigrated to the US in 1949 and their daughter Patricia was born later that year. José then immigrated to the United States in 1952 to be with his wife and daughter. He was employed and worked in various fields at The Lee Hat Factory, The Danbury Rubber Shop, Amphenol, and Republic Foil Corporation, until his retirement in 1987.

Joe, as he was better known, was known for his good sense of humor and his contagious laughter among friends. He loved spending time with family and friends, especially the time with his great-grandsons Connor, Aiden, Evan, and Cameron. Joe was extremely loving and proud of his grandson Dion, his granddaughter-in-law Tracy, and his wonderful great-grandsons. Tracy always made him happy with her cooking and made him laugh when she made him eat his vegetables. Joe was an avid soccer fan who coached the Portuguese American Club Soccer Team. He loved watching Benfica, claiming they were “The World’s Best Team” when they won, and spent countless hours teaching and watching Dion play soccer.

Joe was predeceased by his parents Antonio and Maria Prazeres Aires and his brothers Antonio and Alfredo. Joe is survived by his daughter Patricia, his son-in-law José, his grandson Dion, his granddaughter-in-law Tracy, his 4 great-grandsons Connor, Aiden, Evan, and Cameron, his brother and sisterin-law Julio and Cidalia Aires, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews in the US, Portugal, and Brazil.
