Julio Marques
Oct 05, 2019

Julio Marques of Marion passed on Saturday October 5th surrounded by family after a brief, yet courageous fight with cancer and complications from a stroke.
Born in Sao Miguel to Joao and Maria (Tavares) Marques, Julio leaves his loving wife Diane; son and daughter-in-law Julien and Kim Marques; son and daughter-in-law Justin and Krissy Marques; and grandchildren Abigail, Graham, and Logan. Julio will be greatly missed by his mother-in-law Norma Cabral, brother and sister-in-law John and Ana Marques, and the countless others who his life touched over the years.
Julio came to the United States in 1972. He earned his GED and real estate license while working multiple jobs to support his young family in his new country. His career took him into manufacturing and quality assurance, first at Borg Warner/New Bedford Gear, and then to Arch Gear in Wareham, and finally at Autopart International.
Julio enjoyed cooking, the ocean, cars and much more. But his true love was his family. Though he and Diane were married for more than 40 years, they would still take frequent walks on the beach near their home, hand-in-hand. Any family gathering would find him chatting with his two sons about anything and everything from the newest Panera sandwich to new developments around town. It was with his grandkids, though, that you would see Julio at his happiest. Julio's smile was never larger than it was when he was playing with Abigail, Graham and Logan.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the women and men of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at St. Luke's Hospital for the compassion and care they exhibited for Julio and his family.
In lieu of flowers, and keeping with Julio's wishes, donations can be made to St. Jude's Research Hospital. Private arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Rd., Rt. 6, Mattapoisett. For online guestbook, visit

Christopher was best known for his musical talents. Although Chris had several different jobs along the way, you can take the music out of the man, but not the man out of the music. He was the happiest when performing. Being a self-taught guitarist Chris could break apart a song by ear and perform a rendition that would leave you wanting more. If you ever heard Chris perform Roxanne or What's Going On, you would understand. He had a great ear for music and could play any genre. His chops, voice, harmonizing ability, easy going personality made him the man he was with so many friends and very respected in the music community.
The Richards family was on a trip to New York City when the boys stressed to their Dad the need to get them home so they could watch the Beatles debut on the Ed Sullivan Show. Chris' older brother Tony had a little tenor guitar and that was the start of it all. Once he got his hands on that little guitar he never stopped playing. Chris was 15 when he played in his first band. He played with Steeplejack; The McCarthy Richards Band; The Butch McCarthy Band; The Stunners; a solo artist; MRL, The Quartet, and with many, many musicians. Chris' best friend in life and music was Kenny Richards. The duo played music together for over 52 years. Chris was so happy he was able to perform with Kenny in Greece.
Survivors include his daughter, Molly K. Richards and former wife Christine, both of Mattapoisett, his daughter, Sarah S. Gill and her husband Jimmy of Rumford, RI, his son, Benjamin C. Richards of South Carver, his brother, Peter Richards and wife Susan of Nantucket, and his nephew Parker Richards of New York.
