Jose Manuel Santos

September 18, 1966 ~ November 8, 2021 (age 55)


Jose “Joe” M. Santos, 55, of Bristol, RI died peacefully on November 8, 2021 at Dawn Hill with his loving family by his side after a two year battle with complications from stroke.

Born in the island of Madeira, Portugal, Joe immigrated to America in 1972 at the age of six and attended Bristol Public schools. A quiet soul, he was happiest in his routine that included caring for his precious cats Lucky, Dina and Gracie, watching his favorite shows, or enjoying the view of wild animals from his deck with a good cup of coffee. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to family and friends. A painter by trade, he was also previously employed as a machinist at Jade Plastics.

He is survived by his sisters Carmina Benevides, Fernanda Joyal (Arthur), Maria Sylvia (John) of Bristol, RI; Germana Santiago of Orlando, Fl; nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, grand-nephews and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, Maria L. and Elias dos Santos, his brother Elias, sister Teresa, and his dear friend Katarzyna Finch.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday November 13, 2021 at 10 AM at St. Mary’s Church, 330 Wood Street, Bristol. Burial will follow in North Burial Ground, Hope Street, Bristol. Visitation will be at Sansone Funeral Home, 192 Wood Street, Bristol on Saturday November 13, 2021 from 8:30-9:30 AM.
