October 25, 1951 – January 15, 2023

Surrounded by his loved ones, José (Joe) Horacio Ferreira, loving husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather died peacefully on January 15, 2023 at 71 years of age.
He was predeceased by his parents, Irene and Manuel Ferreira, brothers, Manuel Ferreira and John Ferreira, sister-in-law and brother-in-law Maria de Lourdes and Manuel Santos Machado, and brother-in-law Andrew Di Rado.
He leaves to cherish his memory the love of his life, Maria, along with his daughters, Lucy (Alan), Christine (Paul), Tracy (Jason), and his grandchildren, Savana, Gavin, Alessio, Amare, Zander and Ellie. He also leaves to mourn his brother Gil (Donna), sister Rosa as well as his sisters-in-law, Maria and Luisa, cousins, godchildren, many nieces, nephews and friends.
Joe was a caring and friendly guy and always made friends wherever he went. He always loved a good time and made sure to crack a few jokes - even right to the very end. He loved his family; they were his pride and joy. He made unique connections with everyone in his own special way. Joe loved his polka dancing and would make sure to swing his wife, daughters or granddaughters onto the dance floor whenever he had the opportunity. He enjoyed sports and never missed a Montreal Canadiens or Jets game.
Our world is shattered without you and we will never stop missing you. We love you so much.
The family would like to thank the staff at St. Boniface Hospital for the amazing care and support they provided to Joe and the rest of the family during this difficult time.
As per Joe's wishes cremation has taken place. A private service to celebrate his life has been arranged.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Joe can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
