Robert Ferreira entered into eternal rest on June 11. Beloved husband of Emelia (Silvia) Ferreira, they were married for almost 63 years. A resident of Westport, MA since 2014, he previously resided in The Villages, FL and Portsmouth, RI. He was the son of the late John and Evelyn (Souza) Ferreira.
Besides his wife, he is survived by his sons Robert, Jr. (Warwick, RI) and Mark E. and his wife Kate (Plymouth, MA). Spending time with his three grandsons, Andrew Ferreira (Paige), Adam Ferreira and Samuel Ferreira was among his greatest joys. On Leap Year Day, he was blessed with his only great-grandchild, Olivia, who brought him comfort in the last few months of his life. His brother John (Fall River, MA) and many godchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins also survive him. Besides his family, he loved nothing more than fishing in the ocean.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, his services and celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
