Jose Lopes Jorge, best known as Ze Lindo from North Newark, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on October 23, 2020 at the age of 87. He is predeceased by his parents Maria De Lurdes Rodrigues and Nazário Lopes Jorge, his two sisters Beatriz & Lurdes. He was born on 4/15/1933 in Vila Nova de Tazém, Concelho de Gouveia, Portugal. He was married to Maria Izilda Correria Pinto from Girabolhos, Portugal. Together in their incredible 65 years of marriage, they created their legacy of having 6 children, 10 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren. He is survived by his wife, Maria Izilda. Children and spouses: Lurdes Trindade & Jose, Maria Davila & Wilfredo, Jose Jorge & Ana, Maria Izilda Rombola & Gregory, Fatima Jorge, Luis Jorge & Paula. Grandchildren: Marcia, Michelle, Marisol, Maribel, Elizabeth, Gregory, Sabrina, Mathew, Abigail, Rebecca, and Spouses. Great-grandchildren: Julianna, Gabriella, Christian, Liam, Emma, Mateo, and Sofia. In the early years of marriage, Jose and Maria migrated from Portugal to Brazil with their firstborn, Lurdes. They lived in Brazil for 18 years, where the family continued to grow. In 1977, they immigrated to the USA. Upon his retirement as a construction worker from Local Union 472, Jose enjoyed his passion for gardening, his love for fútbol, especially Benfica! Countless hours were spent watching Benny Hill and The Price is Right. He will be remembered as a social butterfly and a huge jokester, which will remain in our hearts forever. His memory will live on through endless stories and mainly through the love that he gave. He is now reunited with his parents and many of his loved ones. He will be missed by his family, and by his friends. John 14:1-3 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” .
