Henrique Caetano


April 15, 1034 ~ September 6, 2021


Henrique Caetano, mostly known as Henry, was born in Sao Mateus, Terceira Azores on April 15, 1934 to Leonor Ferreira Alves and Manuel da Costa Caetano. He was one of five siblings. He immigrated to the United Stated in the early 1950s. His journey to America wasn’t easy. He traveled by ship departing the Azores islands to Ellis Island over a couple of weeks. He then traveled by train from New York to California. He married Teresa Correia in September 1968. Retirement gave him more time to tend to his many fruits trees, which always produced an abundance of fruit to share with family, friends, and neighbors. He loved his garden, and spent many hours in his back and front yards. Most days you could find him at the Berryessa Flea Market or Orchard Supply Hardware store looking for treasures for his garden and home. He also loved riding his bike. Tio had a great sense of humor and enjoyed making people laugh with his silly jokes and pranks. He loved The Lord very much and was a man of great faith.


He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He passed away at the age of 87 years old, in the early hours on September 6, 2021 with his caregiver Maria Lucinda Pereira at his side, in his home of 50 years.


He leaves behind his beloved wife of 53 years Teresa Caetano one brother Abel Costa, sister in law Teresa Correia, and two nieces Isabel Watzke and Carla Ramos.
