Obituary for Angelo A. Aguiar

Surrounded by family, Angelo passed away at home in Los Gatos on Sunday. Beloved husband of Patti Aguiar, father of Lauren Kuehn (Gary), Matt (Lisa), Tim (Donna), Jerry, Patrick, and Paul (Jaime) Aguiar, grand¬father of Corrinne Kuehn, Nate, Andy, Aaron, Mike, Dan, Victoria, Elizabeth, Joe, Sam, James, Suzy, Sarah, Emily, Lucas Aguiar, and Michelle Chen.

Born on New Year’s Day in 1934 in the Azores, Angelo left Portugal in the early days of WWII with his family and settled first in East Providence, RI, later moving west. He attended San Mateo High School and upon graduation joined the Marines in 1953. He spent the majority of his term of service in Hawaii, playing football and running the sports facility for the Special Services at Kaneohe Bay.

In 1956, he left the Marines to further his education, enrolling at San Jose City College and later at SJSU, where he earned his degree in physical education and health. As a student at SJSU, Angelo met Patti Maki. The two were married in 1960 and went on to raise 6 children and 16 grandchildren. While finishing up his college studies, Angelo began coaching freshman basketball and assisting with the JV team at St. Francis. He joined the faculty as a full-time teacher and coach one year later and eventually took over coaching the football team as well as many other sports. Known for his tireless spirit, Angelo frequented local high schools and made friendships with coaches, athletic directors, and teachers in the area. He closely observed other schools and facilities taking note of things he admired. These notes would serve him well in his career as he moved from coach, to athletic director, ultimately to development director. His vision transformed the school into what it is today.

Angelo will be missed, not only by his family, but by the St. Francis family as he served the school for more than 50 years, shaping many lives.

In the “look to the future” spirit of Angelo, we ask that in lieu of flowers contributions be made to the Angelo Aguiar Endowed Tribute Fund with St. Francis High School to help the school and its students for years to come.

Visitations will be held Sunday, August 19th starting at 2:00 p.m. with a Vigil Service at 4:00 p.m. at Cusimano Family Colonial Mortuary, 96 W. El Camino Real, Mtn.View. A Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, August 20th at 11:00 a.m at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, 219 Bean Ave., Los Gatos. Interment to follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Los Altos.
