He was born February 13, 1932 in São Bartolomeu, Terceira, Açores, the oldest of 14 children to Antonio and Angelina Macedo. At the age of 24 he left home for Canada where he worked on the Canadian Pacific Railroad for 6 years. He then came to Tulare to work on his uncle's dairy.

His children and grandchildren will fondly remember and miss his blessing on their way out the door, as well as one of his favorite farewells, "Vá no meio do cuminho, (go in the middle of the road, be safe)."
