Herculano B. Oliveira, 85, of Fall River passed away peacefully November 10, 2023 at home, surrounded by his family.
He was the widower of the late Ilda S. (Caveiro) Oliveira, to whom he had been married for 57 years.
Born in St. Michael, Azores, he was a son of the late Annibal Bernardo Oliveira and Maria Filomena Oliveira. Herculano moved to Fall River with his wife and five children in 1970.

He was an active parishioner and volunteer at Santo Christo Church and was a member of the Santo Christo Club. He was an avid fisherman and enjoyed building and fixing things, going for walks outdoors, and, most of all, spending time with his family.
