After a protracted battle with cancer, Cezalpino “Cesar” S. Miranda 65, of Framingham died Thursday February 14, 2019 at Beth Israel Hospital. He was born in Tarumirim, Minas Gerais, Brazil and was raised in Sao Paulo, the son of Nersina Julia (Arruda) de Miranda and the late Antonio Soares de Miranda. Cesar took extreme pride in his work while working for Labadini Landscapes Corporation for over twenty years. He was a member of St. Tarcisius Church, and loved Formula One racing and his soccer team Palmeiras. He was a happy, outgoing, social man that enriched the lives of all he met. He leaves two sons Anderson S. Miranda of Framingham and Robson S. Soares of Milford; a daughter, Fernanda S. Miranda of Framingham; three brothers, Paulo, Geraldo and Jose Rita Miranda all of Brazil; two sisters, Sueli Miranda of Framingham and Etelpina Miranda of Brazil; three grandchildren, Luciano Martins of Framingham, Sabrina and Davi Soares of Milford; many nephews and nieces. He was the former husband of Blandina (Souza) Soares. Cezalpino will be fondly remembered by family and friends as a loving father and a courageous fighting hero. Cancer came to Cesar life exactly one year ago. It brought with it lots of pain and suffering breaking away his dreams and his happiness. Still Cesar was very brave and never gave up his faith. In the end cancer loses its strength and grace appears. He lives now in our most loving memories and rests in peace in the presence of the lord.
