Paca was a police officer in Brazil and worked several different jobs when he moved to the US over 20 years ago. He was well known for his infectious smile that often brought joy to everyone around him. He was a very caring person with a passion for helping people, and making sure everyone was alright and always laughing. 

He dedicated his time to help friends and strangers in need, his church and family. Paca could always be counted on if you needed him at any time, day or night. He was well known for his vibrant personality and kind heart. People have said that after meeting him for 5 minutes, he made you feel like he had known you for your whole life.
