He was the dedicated and loving husband of 56 years of Maria Natalia (Tomas) Vieira. Born and raised in the village of Fazenda das Lages, on the island of Flores in the Azores, he was a veteran of the Portuguese Army. Mr. Vieira immigrated to the US in 1972 and settled in Stoughton.

After his retirement, he enjoyed his passion of tending to his garden and transformed his yard into a beautiful flower garden. Jose also had a passion for Portuguese literature, had a daily writing practice, and curated a library of authors and poets. His thankful, cheerful and gentle presence will be greatly missed by his loved ones.
