Greece: On this day of our Lord, Wednesday, June 17th, 2020, heaven received a legendary and faithful saint, Manuel Medeiros Jr. “He fought the good fight, He finished the race, He kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for him the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to him on that Day, and not to him only but also to all who have loved His (Christ’s) appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8).
Manny is survived by his wife Carol Medeiros of 62 years; 4 children, Victoria Medeiros, Timothy Medeiros (Donna), Patrick Medeiros (Tina), Mary Ellen Siegler (Bill).

Manny is also survived by 5 sisters, Dolores Bradley, Rosalee Alves, Elaine Lacombe, Julie Ann Carlesi & Joan Barcellos, and his brother Ricardo Medeiros.
Manny is also survived by 25 nieces & nephews, all with families of their own with many more grands & greats. Manny is also predeceased by his parents Manuel Medeiros Sr. & Mary Medeiros, who started this wonderful family and received their son with open arms when he walked through the gates of Heaven.
Although Manny will be deeply missed here on Earth, he will be remembered for his love for his family, his strength, his grace, his faith, his kindness, his generosity, his smile, his ability to make people laugh, his silly jokes, and most importantly, his love & personal relationship with His Lord and Savior, JESUS CHRIST.
He served our nation proudly in the United States Air Force and was a Korean War Veteran. He was a master mechanic and trouble shooter for Chrysler, and he eventually followed the Lord’s calling into pastoral ministry, pastoring the Living Word Christian Church for 20 years in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. Most recently, he served at the Mission Share Outreach Center located in Greece, NY, where he was an inspiration to so many and loved by all who had the opportunity to meet him.
