Long-time Brown University employee Armando Carvalho dies

Colleagues remember Department of Facilities Management staff member as kind, optimistic

Armando Carvalho, a member of the Department of Facilities Management for 18 years, died Thursday. He was 51. President Christina Paxson P’19 notified the Brown community of his death in a campus-wide email Friday morning.

An immigrant from the Azores in Portugal, Carvalho is survived in Rhode Island by his wife, Fatima; his two sons, Leo and Justin; his granddaughter, Nazalya and his three siblings, Paxson wrote.

Carvalho began working at the University as a temporary custodian in 1997, quickly moving to a full-time position by February 1998 and transitioning to another shift at the end of that year, Paxson wrote. He was “recognized by his supervisor as someone who was always willing to help out and who worked at a high level,” she wrote, adding that co-workers singled out Carvalho for his optimism and kindness toward others.

Representatives from Facilities Management could not be immediately reached for comment.
