His grandchildren Diana (Aj), Christopher (Clara), Anthony, Amanda, Christian, and Alexandra and two great grandchildren Nicolas and Leia.
He was the happiest when surrounded by his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Antonio had an enormous passion for his birthplace, Nazare, Portugal, and was a soccer lover. A dedicated fan of Sporting. Antonio’s children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren have had a great loss. He was the pillar of the family and example to how we want to live our lives.
