Manuel passed away peacefully at home in Pacific Grove. He was the youngest of seven children born to Antonio Souza Soares and Maia dos Anjos Souza on the Island of Sao Jorge, Azores. He was very proud of his Portuguese heritage and very active in the Portuguese community. Manuel was president for four terms of the F.D.E.S of Monterey and two terms of Our Lady of Fatima Society of P.G.
Manuel is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Goretti Soares; daughters, Elizabeth Eizalde and Bernadette Soares; son, Steve Alvernaz; brothers, Antonio and Angelo Soares; sisters, Helena Frutuoso and Fatima Silveira; six grandchildren, four great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews and countless friends who were considered family.
Manuel was a gifted carpenter for 38 years until he retired in 2005. He was an avid fisherman and hunter who also loved nature and anything outdoors including his garden. He loved to cook and have friends over, play games, especially cards with his friends, nieces and nephews. He and his wife loved to travel and went on many memorable trips. He especially loved going back to the Islands where he was born and visited many times at his family home that he cherished. He lived life to the fullest and blessed everyone whom he met. He will be missed by many.
Visitation will be at The Paul Mortuary Chapel this Friday, April 28 from 4:00 - 7:00 PM with recitation of the Rosary at 6:00 PM. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Angela Merici Church in Pacific Grove on Saturday, April 29 at 1:00 followed by entombment at San Carlos Cemetery in Monterey.
