Obituary For Marco Amaral Antonio

Marco Antonio, 44, of Bristol, RI (formerly of Cumberland) passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Monday, February 27, 2023 at RI Hospital. He was the loving husband and best friend of Bethanie Maduro-Antonio and the beloved father of Sloan Elise and Savio Elias Antonio and their big pup, Zora.

Marco was a dedicated and valued member of the Bristol-Warren School Department. As maintenance supervisor, he served as a leader to his employees. In addition, he worked alongside his father, uncles, and cousins for over 20 years in their family business, Roger's Ace Hardware in Cumberland.

Marco was an amazing person who was loved by many. He was an avid sports fan; played soccer as a teenager and loved watching his favorite soccer team, Benfica. Marco was a family man and lived for his family. His roaring voice will be missed echoing on the sidelines cheering for his children at soccer games, football games and while sporting his favorite title, Dance Dad. He was proud of his Portuguese heritage and spent countless hours with his close-knit family. Marco was a hard worker, a loyal friend, a loving husband and best friend; a dedicated father, a loyal son and son in-law. He was a caring brother and brother in-law and a supportive friend. He loved a smooth Johnny Walker, some good music and a big family gathering. He touched the hearts and lives of all of his family and friends and so many others in this world.

Marco is survived by his wife Bethanie, and their children Savio and Sloan. His devastating loss will be felt by all of his surviving family including his parents Mario and Maria Antonio, of Cumberland and his sister and his first friend, Tania Almeida and her husband, Cliff of Cumberland. He will be sorely missed by his god children, nieces, and nephews; Phoenix and Legend Perkins; Sebastian Maduro and Maxwell and Stella Almeida. He leaves a gaping loss to his many aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins and lifelong friends.

Services are with Smith Funeral & Memorial Services, 8 Schoolhouse Rd. Warren, RI, where the family will receive relatives and guests for Visitation on Friday, March 3, 2023 from 4-8PM.

A Funeral Service will be held in Smith Funeral Home Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 10AM followed immediately by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11AM in St. Thomas the Apostle Church, 500 Metacom Ave. Warren, RI.

Burial will be at St. Mary of the Bay Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Nathan's Angels Memorial Foundation. For tributes or directions, please visit: www.wjsmithfh.com.
