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.

David married Emarenciana “Marcy” Aguiar on January 30, 1966 in Portugal. He lived in Colorado Springs/Ellicott area since 1978 and formerly lived in Chino, California. He owned and operated the Santa Barbara Dairy and loved to play acoustic guitar and to plant and take care of many trees.
He is survived by his wife; son, Daniel Medeiros; daughter, Teresa Medeiros; and brother, Jesse Medeiros. He was preceded in death by his parents, Luis and Mary; four brothers: Joe, Joseph, Duarte, and Louie; and two sisters, Eduarda and Mary.

What a great man Dave was. We loved him like family. He made my family and I feel like family. It was a honor to know him. He was the hardest working dairyman that you would ever find. What a beautiful farm they had. We had so many fun times and what great food we enjoyed with the Medeiros family. Thanks for the wonderful memories. I loved the times by the poolside. The beautiful home, trees, and yard. I enjoyed walking around with Dave when he taught me about his trees and grape vines. Thank you Marcy, Teresa, and Daniel for you all being such a great family. Prayers and sympathy go out to Dave’s family. We have the greatest milker in the skies now. Sing on my friend. Love from James, Mary, and Lacey Chisman.
