A Tribute to a Friend & Fallen Director
NUNO MARIA PRATA DA CRUZ
January 5, 1956 - July 2, 2021
By Maria Roliz


On July 2, 2021, the Lusitano Club mourned the loss of a great director, a friend, and a faithful son of the Macaense community, Nuno Maria Prata da Cruz.
Nuno was a dedicated and influential director of the Lusitano Club since its incorporation; and also a director of the Macau Cultural Center, and Portuguese Historical Society, amongst others. He was always very kind and helpful, a true gentleman, and had a special way of touching the lives of all those who he associated with.
Quietly battling his stage 4 cancer since 2015, Nuno never complained or allowed his cancer to take over his life. To the contrary, he lived his life to the fullest pursuing his many interests and passion in music, traveling, and his collection of exquisite liquor bottles. He was very proud of his Portuguese Macanese heritage and spent a lot of his time to ensure we know who we are and where we came from. He helped promote and preserve our art, music, food, history, culture and everything he held dear to see our future continue to be in the hearts of our younger generation so they can keep the
torch burning bright everywhere they are and may go. He was not only a loyal, dedicated, and passionate member of the Macanese community, he was just as involved in the Portuguese Community in the US and globally. He was the link that connected Macau, the Luso-Americans, and Portugal.
Nuno era um bom filho, extremamente bom marido, bom irmão, bom
tio, bom cunhado, bom amigo, excelente estudante, activo no Lusitano
Club e em outras instituições. Enfim, foi um autêntico Português em alma
na nossa fraternidade.


It was my esteem honor and privilege to have been a friend of Nuno and served with him on the Board for the last three decades; attending and representing Lusitano in countless events and meetings together in Macau, Portugal, and locally. I will surely miss his friendly presence and down to earth conversations. He will be dearly missed but his great legacy will remain forever. Rest in Peace, my dear friend!
Farewell to thee! but not farewell
To all our fondest thoughts of thee:
Within our hearts they still shall dwell;
And they shall cheer and comfort us.


Our deepest sympathy to his wife Maria Joao da Cruz, his sisters Manuela Sequeira, Fernanda Barros (Humberto), Maria Perpetuo (Joe), and his many nieces and nephews.
