Tribute

Tribute to Dad, Mateus Diniz Victoria (Vitoria)

Mateus passed away at his residence in Escalon, California on May 10, 2022 due to complications of congestive heart failure. He was surrounded by his loving family.

Mateus D Victoria (Vitoria) was born in Feteira, Terceira Azores on November 3, 1935 to Joao Machado Vitoria and Faustina Candida Diniz Vitoria. From a young age he worked on the family farm with his siblings and was nurtured and taught the principles of hard work, diligence, honesty, fairness, prayer and Christian values. He was a loving role model to our family and left a legacy for his family and friends.

Mateus entered military service in 1956. After his discharge in 1960 he met the love of his life, Romualda, his wife of 60 years. In 1970 they immigrated to the United States with their first-born son, Luis, and established their home in California’s Central Valley, where Mateus worked at several locations in the dairy industry. In 1974, they welcomed their second son, Daniel. In 1989, Mateus and Romualda purchased the family farm in Escalon, California and eventually became almond farmers. Mateus had a love for gardening and farming and would spend hours maintaining both the garden and the farm. Living a humble and old school way of life, Mateus and Romualda, through hard work and personal sacrifices, achieved the American dream and were proud to have become American citizens.

Mateus is proceeded in death by his parents, and siblings Joao Vitoria, Antonio Vitoria, Francisco Vitoria and Maria de Esperanza  Sozinho.

He is survived by his loving wife Romualda, his devoted sons Luis and Daniel, and his beloved grandchildren Sabrina, Matthew and Brooke.
