Stan­ley Joseph Azevedo passed away peace­fully on 9/21/18 at the age of 93. He was born and raised in the Santa Clara County Por­tuguese farm­ing com­mu­nity. He was the old­est of four chil­dren (Stan, Melvin, Harold, Ber­na­dine) and was a happy and ram­bunc­tious child who loved to play sports and help on the Or­lando fam­ily farm. At the age of 17, he was drafted into WWII to serve in the Navy on the USS Con­ner De­stroyer de­ployed in the South Pa­cific. Af­ter re­turn­ing from the war, Stan was mar­ried 59 years to the love of his life, Mary Made­line Mor­eira, the only child of apri­cot farm­ers in The Val­ley of Heart’s De­light. Stan and Mary were mar­ried at St. Clare’s Parish in Santa Clara in 1949 and then raised a fam­ily of three chil­dren in San Jose: Rick, Deb­bie and Ron­nie. Stan was blessed with seven grand­chil­dren (Melissa, Paul, Koree, Lynzee, Ange­lyn, Drew, Holly) and five great grand­chil­dren (David, Mon­ica, Mad­die, Frankie, Ja­cob). Stan was an avid 49er fan and en­joyed mak­ing cab­i­netry, danc­ing, play­ing cards, hunt­ing and fish­ing, and many years spent pass­ing time with bud­dies at the Amer­i­can Le­gion. Rest in peace Stan­ley.
