FRAMINGHAM – Ezekiel J. Cardoso Ocasio, passed away unexpectedly, surrounded by his family on Monday, December 27, 2021 at Framingham Union Hospital.
Ezekiel laughed and smiled throughout his 1 year and 4 months of life, bringing joy and happiness to everyone he touched.
He was the beloved son of Amanda Cardoso of Milford and Angel L. Ocasio, Jr. of Framingham.
Ezekiel was born on August 4, 2020 in Framingham.
Ezekiel and his mother were inseparable during his 16 months of life. The way he looked at her and his dad would warm any heart who witnessed it. During his brief visit on earth, he was a playful and loving child, who had a shining personality. He loved swings, bath time, splashing in any body of water, and was always singing. His favorite songs, reflective of his big personality, were “BINGO,” and “Todo de Ti,” which translates to “everything about you,” and exemplifies how purely he loved. Ezekiel called his loved ones by the names he learned in his short time with them: “Mum, Dada, Vovó (Grandma), and Titia (Aunt), among others.” Ezekiel was known for his kisses, or “beijo” as he would say before giving one. His giggles could light up any room, and he was best friends with Kevin, his dad’s dog. Ezekiel was a gift to this earth and will be sorely missed by so many.
He leaves the lives he touched with a picture of unconditional love. In addition to his parents, Ezekiel is survived by his grandparents: “Vovó” Maria Eunice Milliken and Grandpa John Milliken of Milford, “Vovô” Atila Tigges of Framingham and “Lala” Evelyn Lopez of Framingham; his aunts and uncles: Izabelly Milliken of Milford, Molly Milliken of East Hampton, Catherine Gilbert of Kentucky, Lourena Tigges of Brazil, Alexander Lopez of Framingham, and Michael Hiraldo of Rhode Island; his great-grandparents: Miguel and Hilda Hiraldo of Framingham, Edith Cardoso of Milford and Marleen Milliken of Milford; cousins: Aleena and Annaiya King and many other relatives and friends.
Ezekiel, now safe in the arms of God, was greeted in heaven by his grandfather Angel Ocasio, great-grandfather Manuel Cardoso, and aunt Sheyla Ocasio.
Calling hours for Ezekiel will be held on Wednesday, January 5 from 2-4 P.M. at Connect Church, 280 Pleasant Street, Ashland.
Funeral services and interment private.
