Paul J. Cardoza, Jr.

Paul J. Cardoza, Jr. better known as Joey passed away at his residence in Westwood, CA, on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.  Joey was 65 and had lived in Chester and most recently in Westwood during the past 30 years.  Originally from Livermore, CA, Joey was a retired plumber and business owner of Cardoza Plumbing.

Joey was born in Livermore, CA, on January 21, 1954, and was preceded in death by his parents Paul J. Cardoza, Sr., and Doralee M. Sanders-Cardoza who were natives and lifelong residents of Livermore.

He is survived by his sister Janet Cardoza-Miller, brother-in-law JJ Miller and nephew Clinton Foss of Manteca; brother Glenn Cardoza and sister-in-law Ginamarie Maestas-Cardoza both lifelong residents of Livermore and by many cousins and friends.

Joey attended grammar school in Livermore and graduated from Livermore High School in 1972.  He was an All Star athlete and played Varsity football, baseball, and basketball.  After graduating high school, he attended Chabot College in Hayward, CA, and then Arizona State, after receiving a football scholarship.

Starting at an early age, Joey grew up hunting and fishing in the Livermore Valley.  Joey had a true passion and lifelong love of the outdoors.  His favorite past time and memories were those that included hunting and fishing trips with family and friends.  One of his favorite fishing spots was Hamilton Branch at Lake Almanor and on the Feather River in Plumas County.  He was a volunteer fire fighter in Chester, CA, for about 10 years, and he taught Hunter’s Safety Course in Chester.  Joey was a Native Son of the Golden West and a Clamper.

A small gathering of family and friends will be held at his home in Westwood and at his Aunt’s ranch on Morgan Territory Rd., in Livermore.  Dates are pending.
