August 1960 – June 2022
Our hearts are broken as we mourn the loss of our father, brother, uncle and friend, Rui Manuel Costa, who passed away on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at the age of 62.
Rui was a simple man. He never wanted anything over the top and never wanted to bother anyone. He loved his family so much. He loved going to the bullfights and smoking his cigars. Rui loved watching his favorite team play, Benfica.
Rui was born on August 28, 1960 to Alvaro Costa and Maria Lourdes Pereira in Praia de Victoria in Terceira Island. Rui came to the U.S. when he was seven years old. He lived in Rhode Island for two years, then came to California and settled in Turlock.
Rui is preceded in death by his father, Alvaro Costa, his mother Maria Lourdes Pereira, his sister Lia Lourdes Costa, his grandmother Delfina Meneses, and his grandfather Jose Martins Pereira “ Jose da Lata”.
Rui is survived by his daughter Monique Costa, his son Dillon Costa, and his brother Luis Costa. He also leaves behind nieces and nephews, cousins, Aunts and Uncles and friends.
