Cesar D. Medeiros

May 28, 1949 ~ March 17, 2021 (age 71)


Cesar Medeiros was born on May 28, 1949 in Santa Barbara, São Miguel, Açores in Portugal. He was the oldest child of Vicente and Ambrozina Medeiros. He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1994 and married Ofelia Matos on March 20, 1994.


He is survived by his wife of 27 years, Ofelia; children Peter, Robert, Kevin, Sarah, Rachael, Nathan, Abigail, and Noemi; grandchildren Joshua, Jake, Alex, Kayla, Kasidy, Elijah, Adelynn, and Ryder. He is also survived by his siblings Lucy Teixeira, Odette Cabral, Terry Medeiros, Maria Geoffrey, Vincent Medeiros, Horace Medeiros, and Carlos Medeiros; along with 13 nieces and nephews.


Cesar was beloved by many because he was caring and was always ready to help a friend when needed. He was a hard worker dedicated to providing for his family. He was always very reliable and responsible and took pride in everything he did, never afraid to take on a new endeavor. You could frequently find him at Home Depot, preparing for his next project. Cesar was humble and never forgot his roots; he was a simple man that did not need anything extravagant but appreciated the things he did have. He loved his parents, family, children, and grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them.


Cesar spent about 42 years in New Bedford, Massachusetts where he made many, many friends. It was rare that he would go out without running into someone he knew. For about 30 of those years, he was employed by DW White Construction Inc, where he worked hard to provide for his family and became known as a dependable, reliable worker. In 2005, he moved down to Weeki Wachee, Florida where he enjoyed spending more time at home with his family during his retirement. Now that he had downtime, he took advantage and started his little farm, one of his childhood dreams.


Although this is a hard time for his family and friends, Cesar was a man of faith who drew comfort from Jesus’ words at John 5:28,29: “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”
