Heaven gained a new angel on Saturday, July 23rd with the passing of Henry M. Cardoza Jr., husband of Rena F. Cardoza and resident of Madison, CT. Born December 2nd, 1920 in Fall River, Massachusetts, Henry lived an incredible life of 95 years filled with travel, good food and wine, and his wonderful family. His life experiences are almost immeasurable, but his family will fondly remember the events of Henry's life, including: his patriotism and dedication serving our country as a WWII Veteran in the Army Air Corp, his travels and residences throughout the world including his time in the Azores and Cambodia, his work as a civil engineer, his love of cigars and lobster rolls, his faith in God and his church, and of course his passion, talent and love for cooking which he passed on to several generations of Cardozas.
Henry leaves behind his beloved wife of 73 years, sisters Irene and Evelyn, his two sons and their wives, Stephen and Candy and Gregory and Denise Cardoza, his grandchildren, Stephen, Melissa, Kali, Heather, Zachary, and Gregory, as well as his great-grandchildren and their families.
Henry touched and graced so many lives in his time here on earth and will be missed dearly each and every day.
Services will be held on Saturday, August 6th, with visitation hours at the Swan Funeral home in Madison at 10:30am, followed by a mass honoring Henry at 12 noon at St. Margaret's Catholic Church in Madison, CT.
