DeSousa Oil and Service Corp. is a family-owned full service heating oil business. We deliver quality heating oil and kerosene at reasonable prices along with reliable service. The current owners are all family, Timothy J. DeSousa, Martin D. DeSousa and Timothy M. DeSousa (Tim's oldest son). All three are involved in all aspects of the business. The business was started in 1956 by Tim and Marty's parents, Martin J. and Tessie DeSousa with one service van and one oil truck. It has grown into a fleet of four oil delivery trucks, three service vans and one tractor trailer. All three wives of the owners, Linda (Tim's wife), Carol (Marty's wife), and Patty (Timmy's wife) run the office for their husbands at 502 Delaware Avenue, Palmerton. This truly is a family business!
