Forever in our hearts...
Mario Fernandes DeAlmeida (79), lost his brave battle with late-stage Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s disease on October 19, 2021, in Katy Texas. He was born in Lisbon Portugal on October 13, 1942, to Felisbela Gomes Santos and Alfredo DeAlmeida. He married the love of his life, Maria G. Veloso DeAlmeida on August 24, 1969.
Mario was a proud and devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He loved to spend time with his family doing anything from playing cards to celebrating their accomplishments. He enjoyed traveling the world, going to casino’s, dancing, and cheering on his favorite sports teams (NY Rangers, NY Giants and Portuguese soccer team Benfica).
Mario was preceded in death by his father Alfredo and brother Vladimiro “Gino” DeAlmeida.
Mario is survived by his mother Felisbela, loving wife of 52 years Maria, two sons Richard (Mandy) Almeida and Jimmy (Jolene) Almeida, three treasured granddaughters Lainey, Shelby and Zoe, sister Ana Johnson, and sister-in-law Ana Veloso.
A visitation will be held to celebrate Mario’s life.
In lieu of flowers, the family has set up a GoFundMe account to assist with medical and funeral expenses.
