Antonio Mendonca

January 31, 1958 ~ January 3, 2020 (age 61)

Tribute

Antonio was born on January 31st, 1958 to Antonio Vitorino Mendonca and Maria Lucilia Leonardo Mendonca in Sao Jorge, Azores, Portugal.

 

Antonio came to this country as a young boy and was raised in Modesto, California most of his life. He had a love for classic cars and deep sea fishing. He worked most of his life as a self-employed contractor and had the ability to envision something built from the ground up before the project had even begun. Anything from a shop or barn to a simple fix, he did it, got it done and just kept going. Till this day you can see his work all around the Central Valley.

 

Antonio had the ability to bring a smile to those around him. He had a special way of not sugar coating a situation but telling us just what we needed to hear, when we needed to hear it. At the age of 34, Antonio became a father for the first time. He had 3 children, Tania, Tony and Michael. He was very proud of his children and loved them more than anything in this world. He always strived to teach them his hard work ethics and wisdom throughout the years.

 

Antonio will be missed by many.

 

Pallbearers will be Tony Mendonca, Micheal Mendonca, Shane Mendonca, Logan Mendonca, Albert Mendonca, and Harley Rice.
