AGE: 26 • Neptune City
Rogerio Moreira, 26, of Neptune City NJ, passed away Saturday, January 5, 2013 at the Jersey Shore Hospital after suffering for many years from Crohn's Disease and other ailments. Roger was forever a child at heart, a free spirit that loved his loyal dog Lola, the "old beach bum days", snowboarding, and in particular soccer and baseball where he excelled since his youth and up to college level at Brookdale Community College. Professionally, Roger left many a customer pleased with his fine skills as an electrician.
He was predeceased by his father, Antonio Albino Moreira, and is survived by his mother Maria dos Anjos Moreira, his devoted sister and brother-in-law Candida and Evan Tomassini and his beloved niece Isabella.
Roger is also survived by his maternal grandmother Maria Moreira, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends all over the US and in Portugal.
