Frank Machado
Frank Ferreira Machado passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, on June 28, 2018. A kind, honorable, generous, and loving man, Frank was a beloved husband of 62 years, a wonderful father, grand- father and uncle as well as a true friend to many. The world was a better place with him in it. He will stay in our hearts forever.
   Frank was born on Roberts Island, Stockton, CA on December 3, 1930, to Joe F. and Frances G. Machado, originally of Feteira on Terceira Island in the Azores. Frank was the much beloved husband of Arlene (Lima), and father of Frank Jr., Kathleen (Brian) Garcia, Aaron, and grandfather to Brittany, Alexis and Robert. He was preceded in death by his parents, and older brothers Joe F. and Anthony (Tony) G. Machado.
Frank was a proud life-long farmer, rancher and dairyman, originally with Joe Machado and Sons, then Machado Brothers Dairy, and most recently with wife Arlene and son Frank Jr. at Box 2 Ranch. He was active in running Box 2 Ranch until only a couple weeks before his passing. Frank was past President of the MRPS.
