José Joaquim do Carmo Neiva, a beloved son, brother, father, and companion, passed away on Saturday, May 4, 2024. He was born in Chafé, Viana do Castelo, Portugal, on April 12, 1947.

José leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter, and cherished memories. He is survived by his son, Gilbert Neiva, and his loving companion, Maria. José's presence will also be deeply missed by his brother, Jorge (Ilda) Sampaio, his sisters Elisa (Manuel) Dos Santos and Susana (Abilio) Ferreira, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Preceding him in death are his parents, Maria Lurdes Rita do Carmo and José Augusto Rodrigues Neiva Sampaio, as well as his sisters Maria Ferreira and Judite Araujo.

José's zest for life was infectious, and his passion for music and dance was unmatched. He found joy in every step and note, particularly when playing his concertina and participating in various Portuguese Folklore Musical Dance groups. His energy and enthusiasm lit up any room he entered, leaving a lasting impression on all who had the privilege of knowing him.

In addition to his passion for music and dance, José was a loyal friend to all. He loved going fishing, golfing, and playing cards with his friends. His kindness and unwavering support touched the lives of many, leaving behind a legacy of love that will continue to inspire and uplift those who knew him.

Though he may be gone from our sight, José's spirit will live on in the hearts of those who loved him. He will be remembered fondly for his laughter, his love of life, and his boundless passion for music and dance.

May he rest in peace, forever dancing among the stars.
