Manuel Correia, age 93, died peacefully on April 22, 2020 at Saint Joseph Manor, Brockton, MA.  He was pre-deceased by his parents John and Maria Corriea, his siblings Julio Correia, John Correia, Dorothy Correia, Cecelia Tobey and George Silva.

Manuel is survived by his children, Charles Barboza and wife Melida Barboza, Delmira Cosme, Henry Correia and wife Margaret Correia, Lisa Correia-Anacleto, and Melisa Correia and his Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.  His past wives include Idilia Lopes and Candia Correia.  He also leaves behind great friends and staff at Saint Joseph Manor

Manuel was born in Wareham, MA and at age four, along with his two brothers, Julio and John, was sent to Brava, Cape Verde where he was raised and when he returned to the United States, he was drafted into the army.  He served in the Korean War as a Corporal from 1952-1954 where he was honorably discharged.

He worked various factory jobs with his last being Plymouth Rubber Co in Canton, MA where he worked for many years. He was a very hard worker and also had side jobs which included painting/wallpapering/tile and handyman jobs.  He basically knew how to do it all and was eager to show anyone that wanted to learn.

Manuel was a generous and kind man and loved by all.  He was often kiddingly referred to as “The Mayor of Brockton” because there wasn’t a soul that didn’t know him there.

He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Services are private with burial taking place in the Massachusetts National Cemetery in Bourne.

I was saddened to hear about Manny's passing. Manny was a very special man. Del, my thoughts are with you and your family during your time of grief. You were so devoted to your Dad and visited him every night after work. He always looked forward to seeing you. If I can do anything for you or if you needed anything, please let me know. I'm here for you. For those who don't know me, I used to work at St. Joseph Manor and visited Manny often. He loved having company. He used to come up and visit me now and then at the Reception desk while I was working. Fond memories of him will live on in those who knew and loved him. May he rest in peace.
