October 27, 1940 – February 16, 2022
David Medeiros, age 81, passed away February 17, 2022 at his home in Colorado Springs with his loving wife and family at his side.
David was born October 27, 1940 in San Miguel, Azores, Portugal to Luis and Mary (Furtado) Medeiros. He lived in Portugal until he was 12 years old at which time he traveled to America with his family on a long, difficult trip in a cargo ship.
