Nunes family history




Jose' was a kind and gentle soul that passed away far too young. At only 35, he was just starting his life. Born in Manhattan,he came to Staten Island in the early 1970's with his two brothers , Julio and Luis, he was the middle child, along with his father Domingos and mother Gloria. His parents were Portuguese immigrants from Caramulo in Northern Portugal. His mom was an only child and his father had a sister in Brasil. He had several cousins in Portugal and a great aunt "Tia Idalina" that he was very fond of. His dad worked in construction as a road builder and his mom worked in Path-Mark as a cashier. In Portugal, she was a school teacher. He had a lovely old-world grandmother named Marcia DaSilva, she lived in Newark in the iron-bound section and could not speak a word of English. She passed away at age 82 and was his dear Querida Avo'. He spoke Portuguese fluently and his Portuguese nickname was "Zeca." I also loved to hear him speak Portuguese, it was so beautiful and sounded like a mixture of French and Italian to me. His best friend in Tottenville High School was Steven Schwartz and his girlfriend was Carole Dama. We knew him best as "Joey" and he was a handsome young man that went to Kingsborough College in Brooklyn in 1976.His first job was as a cashier in Pathmark on Forest Ave. in 1975. In the mid 1980's he was a truck driver for his father's construction firm and later became a very good haircutter and cosmetologist and owned his very own shop named "A Cut Above The Rest" in Huguenot on Staten Island. He is gone now 20 years....hard to believe ! May he rest in peace.He died an unnecessary death in my opinion, his life could have been saved if people and the lousy Republican administration under Reagan did more to understand and fund research to help those fighting for their lives in those early and dark days full of fear and ignorance in the early 1990's. He will always be remembered for his warm smile, handsome face, his love of small sports-cars, like his green Mercury Capri and like of foreign languages and his love for his close-knit and wonderful family. May he rest in peace.
