Mr. Antonio Cid, of Spain, Brazil, East Boston and Everett, MA, born on October 16, 1934 in Spain, to the late Herminia Cid-Couzo and the late Manuel Cid, passed away at age 84 on June 8, 2019 after a long illness. Antonio was the beloved husband of Dirce. He was preceded in death by his brother, Juan Cid. Antonio is survived by his daughter, Marize Frontiero; brothers, Manuel Cid and Jose Luis Cid; grandchildren, Scott Goldberg and David Goldberg; and nephews, Manuel Cid and John Cid. Antonio led a full life leaving Spain in his teen years and moving to Brazil where he wed Dirce in 1959. They arrived in East Boston in 1963 with their two year old daughter and later purchased a home in Everett, MA. He retired from Delta Airlines in 1993 and enjoyed traveling, walking Everett Stadium, campaigning for friends during election season and tending his garden. Antonio's joy in life was soccer, family, food/wine and most of all his grandchildren. Those who wish may donate in Antonio's name to the American Cancer Society at donate3.cancer.org. Friends and family can attend a memorial Mass on Thursday, June 20, 2019 at 10 am at Saint Anthony of Padua, 46 Oakes Street, Everett, MA 02149.
To the family and friends of Antonio Cid, I am very sorry for your loss. Cancer like so many other ills is an unexpected and unwelcomed enemy to life. I would like to share a hope that has kept me at peace since my dad passed from lung cancer. Learning that the God of the Bible promises relief from the pain of death and a fix for those who have already succumbed, keeps my heart and mind open and renewed to what will come. May you find comfort in the Bible’s hope that one day we will see our lost loved ones again. Jesus showed how this promise is sure when he resurrected Lazarus John 11:1-44. Such bible truths provide us with hope and comfort as we look forward to the day when death will no longer be and those who have already succumbed to this enemy will be awakened on a Paradisiac Earth, to a life free of sickness, pain, sorrow and the worries of ever dying again. This being the Creator’s original purpose, it will indeed be fulfilled. Though this wonderful Promise from the One who can and will fulfill it doesn’t take away the pain and grief of death, my wish is that it brings you peace and hope during this sad time. Genesis 2:7, 8, 15; Isaiah 55:11; Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3, 4; John 6:40; 1 Corinthians 15:25, 26 🙏🏼
My deepest condolences to the family. May the God of all comfort be with you at this time.(2 Corinthians 1:3,4)
