Jose Cota Mancebo was born August 2nd, 1950 in Doze Ribeiras, Terceira, Portugal to Joaquim and Maria Mancebo. He was the 5th of 7 children. Joe’s early years were spent on a farm surrounded by animals, a theme that would remain prevalent throughout his life. Joe served four years in the Portuguese military before following in his family’s footsteps and immigrating to California in 1975. Originally settling in Livingston, and working with Foster Farms, he soon settled in Santa Clara. There he began working construction where his talents were utilized in the Carpenter’s Union 405. Soon after moving to Santa Clara, Joe met his future wife Ines who he married on May 24th, 1980. Joe and Ines quickly began building their family with the birth of their son Jay in 1981 and their daughter Gabriella in 1987. Joe delighted in watching his children grow up and he shared his hobbies with them, frequently taking them camping and fishing. He also loved using his children (or anything) as an excuse to get more beloved pets. In 2008, Joe hung up his carpenter’s belt, but in retirement he found his favorite job when he became a fulltime grandfather in 2010. Joe made Santa Clara his home until his death on May 2nd 2021. Joe is survived by his wife of 41 years Ines, son Jay, daughter-in-law Andrea, daughter Gabriella, son-in-law Frank, grandchildren Joseph and Mya as well as a loving extended family. Joe is remembered for his kindness, generosity, work ethic and love of animals. He will be remembered as the one who could always get the party started and as someone who was always willing to help others. He will be greatly missed.
