TURLOCK, CA- Joao M. Mendonca, age 78, a longtime resident of Turlock, California, passed away on Wednesday, January 3, 2024 at Emanuel Medical Center in Turlock, CA. 

Born in Fontinhas, Terceira, Azores, Joao was the eldest of nine children born to the late Joao D. and Maria (Andrade) Mendonca. He was raised and educated in the Azores. In 1970, Joao immigrated to California, settling in Turlock, where he would reside for the rest of his lifetime.
