Obituary for Manuel Ferreira

Manuel Borges Ferreira, 75, of Ludlow passed away peacefully on August 11, 2021. He was born in Telões, Vila Pouca de Aguiar, Portugal to the late Jose and Aurora (Borges) Ferreira. He was very proud of his time served in the Portuguese Military as a Policeman in Mozambique, Africa. Upon immigrating to the United States (1970) he settled in Ludlow where he lived the rest of his life. He was a faithful communicant of Our Lady of Fatima Parish and a member of the Gremio Lusitano Club. He had a 30 year career in construction, retiring in 2001. Manuel enjoyed his yearly trips back to Portugal, hunting, fishing, and playing his clarinet. He also truly appreciated a good meal with great wine. But most of all he enjoyed time spent with his family and friends. Well-known for being a jokester, the life of the party, funny, humble and generous. He was also known to make the best shrimp Mozambique you ever tasted, but was most famously known for his “hulk” like strength and super strong handshakes that would make anybody say mercy. Manuel lived life to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved him. His memory will live on in our hearts for eternity. Manuel leaves behind his beloved wife Palmira (Salvador) Ferreira of 51 years; his loving daughters: Teresa Furlani of Ludlow and her partner Michael McKinney of Manchester CT, Maria Santos and her husband Dennis of Hampden, Susan Cunha and her husband Carlos of Sudbury; cherished grandchildren, Sophia, Nicholas, Vanessa, Allyson, Jessica and Aria; his loving sister Maria Fernandes and her husband Joaquim, sister in-law Yvonne, brother in-law Manuel & Maria Salvador all of Ludlow, as well as many nieces, nephews, godchildren, and extended family. Sadly he was predeceased by his brother Antonio Ferreira in 2014. Funeral services for Manuel will be held on Thursday August 19, 2021 from the Ludlow Funeral Home. Visiting hours are from 8:45-10:15am with a Liturgy of Christian Mass celebrated at 11:00am in Our Lady of Fatima Church followed by burial in Island Pond Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Manuel's name to Alzheimer's & Dementia Association www.alz.org.
