EDUARDO MEDEIROS GATA
Peacefully with family by his side, Eduardo passed away on October 20, 2021 at the age of 74.
He was predeceased by his parents, Manuel Medeiros Gata and Luisa Varao.
Eduardo is lovingly remembered by his wife Maria Judite; children, Paula (Antonio) Soares, and David (Melissa) Gata; grandchildren, Isabella, Dominic, Angelica and Miguel.
He leaves his brother Pedro; sisters, Luisa and Ana; and numerous nieces, nephews and godchildren and cousins, all who he adored.
Eduardo was born in Sao Miguel, Acores on January 30, 1947. In 1965, Eduardo immigrated to Montreal, then Toronto and settled in Winnipeg in 1968. Eduardo married the love of his life Maria Judite in 1969.
Second to his family, Eduardo's passion was working for CN Rail for 34 years, which he loved and spoke of daily; as was his green lawn and garden that were the envy of the neighbourhood.
Nothing compared to the love he had for his grandchildren who he would go to the moon and back for.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, October 25, 2021 at Cropo Funeral Chapel 1442 Main Street at 10:00 a.m., interment to follow at Assumption Cemetery. Proof of vaccination will be required.
If friends desire, donations may be made to the Diabetes Association or Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.

Dear Maria, my deepest condolences to you on the loss of your beloved husband. And also to Paula, David and their families. I have fond memories of when we were neighbors across the back lane. I remember his sense of humor and how he took great pride in maintaining both his yard and his home. But what was most important to him was his family; it was evident how proud he was of them. Cherish all the wonderful memories you have and I pray that they will help to ease your pain. May Eduardo rest in eternal peace. - Posted by: Angela Allan (former neighbour) on: Oct 24, 2021
