James Leste Obituary, Death – James Leste’s battle with death was ultimately won by death, and he passed away at Rhode Island Hospital. He was married to Maria Julieta (Costa) Leste, and she was married to him as her husband. He was born in Aqua do Pau, which is located in the municipality of St. Michael in Portugal. His parents, Manuel Leste and Maria deLurdes (Costa) Leste, both passed away before he was born. In addition to his wife Maria, he is survived by his three children and their spouses: Edward Leste PPD and his wife Pamela; Gilbert Leste, Jr. and his wife Mary Lou; and Anna Martin and her husband Patrick.
His wife Maria is also among those who survive him. Maria, the couple’s wife, is also still alive. In addition, he is survived by his grandchildren, Sean Martin, Joshua Martin, and Alana Martin; Kyle Leste, Alexandra Leste, and Raquel Leste; Ashley Leste and her fiance Michael Marley; Nicole Leste and her partner Vincent St. Angelo; and Raquel Leste, Kyle Leste, and Alexandra Leste. Additionally, he is survived by his children, Raquel Leste, Kyle Leste, and Alexandra Leste. He was the brother of Fernanda Costa and Normanda Medeiros, both of whom had previously passed away, as well as Jose and Manuel Leste, both of whom had also previously passed away. Because he was the brother of the sister’s spouse, Ana and Inez Leste were considered to be his nieces and nephews.
Mr. Leste spent the majority of his life in Portugal, where he also worked and acquired his education and training to become an electrician and barber. After making the move to the United States in 1968, he devoted his entire professional life to Rico Manufacturing, where he worked until his final retirement. In particular, he treasured the opportunities to spend time with his grandchildren during the holidays and at other occasions when the family gathered together. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to his children in whatever they were working on, and he took pleasure in working in the yard and gardening. He was going to miss all of his friends at Mosaico Park, and he was going to miss his routine of beginning each day with a walk around Colt State Park. His grand fur kids were Guinness, Sam, Stella, Nova, Marco, Nyla, and Lucy, and he adored each and every one of them. Bently was his favorite.
