In 1954 he immigrated to Brazil where he met his wife Ilidia Gomes. They have two children, Fatima Flamengo Silva married to Andre Silva and Jorge Luis Flamengo married to Irene Almeida Flamengo. In 1980, following God’s guidance they immigrated to the United State, and in 1986 was ordained elder of the Christian Congregation of the United States. He was one of the oldest elders in the United States.

He was a loving father and grandfather to Sarah Flamengo Silva married to Bruno Silva, Abigail De Oliveira married to Salomao De Oliveira, Deborah Flamengo Valerio married to Octavio Valerio, Bryan Flamengo married to Alice Flamengo and Brandon Flamengo and girlfriend Franciele Oliveira.
