Eurico De Sousa Gaspar

On January 27th, 2022, Eurico De Sousa Gaspar (82) passed away peacefully in his sleep and was united with the Lord, after a long battle with stomach cancer among other health issues. 

He was born on July 30th, 1939 in Estarreja, Portugal. He was the son of the late Francisco Antonio Gaspar & Custodia De Silva Sousa. In addition to his parents, his death is preceded by his younger sister and his wife Patrocinia Gomes Rodrigues Gaspar. 

Eurico loved his children, grandchildren, great-grandson, and anyone he met along his journey through life. He enjoyed the outdoors, gardening, as well as fixing or inventing gadgets. You would seldom find him away from the internet or electronics. He enjoyed laughing and making the best of the life he had. He was a stubborn and determined man, who felt he could find the answers to almost any question. He also loved watching soccer, especially Sporting. His spirit and drive for life taught those that he left behind to always carry hope and strength with them throughout their lives. He will be missed by everyone he held dear to him. 

His legacy will be lived on through those he leaves behind to mourn. He has two children, his son Eurico Joao Rodrigues Gaspar of Rochester, New York, as well as Eurico’s son, Niko Gaspar of Woonsocket, Rhode Island. His daughter Teresa Paula Rodrigues Hayhurst of Midland, North Carolina, and her children, Stephanie Beatriz Rodrigues Coburn (Dillon) and his great-grandson Brian Warren Rodrigues Coburn of Jensen Beach, Florida, as well as Teresa’s other children Patrick Richard Rodrigues Hayhurst, Ericka Patrocinia Rodrigues Hayhurst, and Darryn Glen Rodrigues Hayhurst all of Midland, North Carolina. 

A celebration of his life service will be held at Bethel Church of Midland followed by memory of his journey home by releasing of doves to represent his journey home to his love this will be held at Rob Wallace Park following his celebration of life.

His children request that in place of flowers to donate to a charity of choice to represent their loving father whom in his last years here on earth he spent helping others along the journey of life He was often at local shelters helping the less fortunate and would talk to them to let them know they are not alone and that no storm lasts forever.

 

Rest easy and fly high your legacy will live on in the ones left behind.

Stephanie and her family have been the most important people in my life for 12 years now. So having her grandfather pass away is like a grandfather of mine passing away. He looked at me as his own granddaughter and my heart is broken that I didn't get to spend more time with him. But I know he's in a better place and looking down on all of us. Prayers for his family. ❤️

I am so incredibly sorry to the family. His granddaughter Stephanie has been a great friend of mine since childhood. I know he must have been an incredible man because he meant so much to her. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
