Obituary for Agostinho "Gus" Barbosa

On Saturday, February 16, 2019, Agostinho (Gus) Barbosa, passed away at the age of 93.

Gus was born on March 4, 1925 in Murtosa, Portugal. He moved to the United States in 1940 where he joined his parents living in Lodi, NJ. In 1943 Gus moved to the Ironbound section of Newark where he met and married the love of his life, Domingas in 1946.

Gus worked for Goldsmith Leather Company until 1972. He then joined the Newark Fire Department as a Community Relations Coordinator, where he remained until his retirement in 1991.

Gus gave generously of his life, his heart and his capabilities in family, career, and community. He touched many lives through the multiple organizations that were greatly enriched by his dedication and generosity of time and talent. Gus was honored by the Ironbound Boys and Girls club as ‘Citizen of the Year’ in 1985. In 2011, he was named Grand Marshall of the Portugal Day festival.

Gus was preceded in death by his adored wife Domingas. He is survived by his sons Frank Barbosa and Augie Barbosa (Peter Ragano), as well as countless friends and a ‘special granddaughter’ Helena Coutinho-Goncalves.

His presence will be missed but he will never be forgotten.
