3/26/31--3/10/18 Joe De Sousa left us on March 10th. Joe, as we called him, was a son of a wonderful mom and dad and brother to 5 sisters and 6 brothers. His favorites were, of course his older sisters, twins, Evelyn and Lorraine. The connection between the three of them transcended time, love, compassion and family support. He went to school, worked hard, served in the Peace Corp, worked for the State Department and served in our country's military. His studies and passion for travel and life itself provided a wealth of wisdom beyond his years, even as he aged. Joe listened, watched, participated, and learned. And to our collective benefit, patiently shared his wisdom with us. He spoke like a scholar with the approach of a friend. He married Sylvia and raised three children, Richard, Robert and Alice. Joe and Sylvia each moved on Joe met his counter part, Joanna Matos. The twodelighted in fun, the lord, church, laughs, and yes travels for over 15 years. She remained by his side as we all did until the end. Joe left this world peacefully, and as always, curious about his next "journey." We will miss him. With blessings to all. The Desousa, Matos and Dicks Families. Joe's service will be held Tuesday, March 28, 2018 in San Diego Old Mission San Luis Rey.
