VICTOR PAUL MENEZES
Victor passed away peacefully at his home in Rohnert Park, CA surrounded by his loving family. Victor fought lymphoma bravely for 3 years, enduring many treatments. Victor was born in Somalia, and lived in Nairobi, Kenya with his parents and younger brother. At the age of 28 in 1974, he immigrated to London, England and married his wife Maureen. They then immigrated to the United States, settling in San Francisco, California, with their first child, Louise. Victor worked as a plumbing and electrical engineer for many successful companies and for over 50 years. It truly was his passion and he was very skilled. Before having their second child, Andrea, they moved the family to Northern California, and bought their house in Rohnert Park. Victor recently retired from his career as an engineer and was enjoying spending time with his 3 grandchildren, Hannah, Jack and Emerson.
Victor is preceded in Death by his mother and father, Carmen and Jerry. He is survived by his loving wife, Maureen, his two daughters, Louise ( Ari) and Andrea (Peter), his 3 grandchildren, Hannah, Jack and Emerson, his brother, Oscar as well as two aunts, and many cousins.
Victor was a strong, intelligent, man of few words, who was very loved by his family as well as his friends. He loved playing darts, watching the 49ers, the Giants, and EU soccer, and BBQing for his loved ones. We will remember his witty remarks, sage wisdom, and handsome smile.
Services will be taking place this Saturday, March 14th, at St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Rohnert Park. The rosary will take place at 10:30 AM, with a mass to follow at 11:00 AM, and luncheon celebration immediately after.
In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Victor's name to St. Jude's Children's Hospital or the American Cancer Society.
