Past Services


Santos was a one-of-a-kind, very special man. His love of God was known by all. He was loving, wise, witty and had a great way with people.
He dearly loved his wife, Donna Machado; two daughters, Tiffany Rogers and Rachel Sykes; two sons-in-law, Justin and Jeremy and his grandchildren, who were the light of his life, Denyse, Melody, Nathan, Riley and Brianna. He also leaves behind a huge family that he loved with all his heart.
Many thanks to Jean Greene, sister-in-law, who was with him thru thick and thin. She was a family life-line. Also many thanks to Rachel and Jeremy Sykes, who were a tremendous help along his long journey. The Fitzgerald family has also been very helpful, as were his co-workers and customers at Golden Corral, who were of a great support. A special thanks to his doctors, nurses, hospice and Regina for all the care they provided.
Santos will be cremated and there will be a Celebration of Life at a later time.
