Our Special Uncle Bob, 89, passed away peacefully at Sharp Grossmont Hospital, La Mesa, CA, February 24, 2014. His El Cajon, CA family members were by his side his entire journey and present for his final goodbye. He was born September 8, 1924 in San Jose, CA to Manuel H. and Elsie Correia (nee Martin). He was preceded in death by his parents, brother and sister-in-law Joseph E. and Marian G. Correia (nee DiVittorio), sister Betty Correia and great nephew, Greg Sworde. Uncle Bob was a Korean War Veteran-infantry in Country and Certified Medical Aideman with an Honorable Discharge. He was employed by the City of San Jose for 29 years in the Carpenter Shop. In his young years he loved hunting and fishing and was able to still enjoy fishing into his late 70's. Many Thursdays in Loch Lomond in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Survived by nephew, Richard J. and Therese Correia, niece, Janice A. Correia-Ross and Richard C. Ross; great-nieces and great-nephews: Kimberly A. Ensigne (Richard), Marian G. Spadafore, Carrie Huiskens (Mark), Richard T. Correia (Barbara), Mary Hitchcock (Jim), Elizabeth Miller (Danny), Bernadette Roberts (Brad), Anne Taylor (Brian), Dorothy J. Johnson (Rodney), Richard C. Ross (Leanne), and Jeffrey C. Ross (Krissie); 15 great-great nieces, 10 great-great nephews; cousin May Mendoza and long-time friend, Anthony Fumagalli. We wish to acknowledge and thank the friendships that endured Fifty years in his neighborhood in East San Jose. Ramon and Elisa Garcia who have always been there for our Uncle Bob, driving him to shop, going out for lunch, bringing him lunch and even a casino trip now and again. In later years, always doing two daily trips to check on him. Ramon, you WERE his "other" brother. He enjoyed his trips across the street to visit in your home, also. The Earl and LaVern Stephens family, Reggie, Nena Stephens, and Nada Logan. You all welcomed him into your home. He always talked about unforgettable dinners and in his declining years you brought dinners across "your mutual fence." God Bless You All. Uncle Bob enjoyed spending time with his nephew's family and his niece's family, but he wanted to be in his own home and his wish was granted. We Love You, Uncle Bobby. Visitation will be held from 1 pm to 9 pm, Thurs., Mar. 6 at Lima Family Santa Clara Mortuary, 466 N. Winchester Blvd., Santa Clara. The Rosary will be Fri., Mar. 7th at 10am with a Funeral Mass celebrated following at St. Justin Parish, 2255 Homestead Rd. in Santa Clara. Interment will follow in Santa Clara Mission Cemetery.
