Twenty-two years ago an extraordinary life began. Steven Manuel Ferrumpau graced the lives of his parents Manuel and Maria Ferrumpau and his sister Elizabeth Perez. Sharing in this blessed event were his grandparents Francisco and Lidia Ferrumpau and Manuel and Maria Vieira, also many beloved friends and family members from the Valley and Bay Area. All life would change as they had known it. Each day would become a blessing greater than the day before, filled with surprises, joys, shocks and new depths of love. Some of Steven’s greatest joys outside of his family were the additions of his brother-in-law Cesar Perez, and his beautiful niece and nephew Madison and Noah. All became Steven’s associates in driving Liz and Maria crazy and making Manuel smile with joy. This he would do regularly and with much delight. He truly is a precious gift to all who knew him. His love for his family will not fade, nor will their love for him. Our hope is in John 5: 28, 29. So sleep peacefully dear Steven, and we will wait for Jesus Christ to awaken those in the memorial tombs.
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 28 at Turlock Funeral Home, 425 N. Soderquist Rd. Entombment to follow at Turlock Memorial Park.
