Bruce Joseph Gonsalves

d. December 15, 2022


Bruce Joseph Gonsalves, 64, resident of Pearlington, MS passed away peacefully on December 15th, 2022 surrounded by loving family & friends.  He was born October 7th, 1958 in Fall River, Massachusettes to Louis Gonsavles & Antonette D'Amico.  

He is preceded in death by his parents, Louis Gonsalves & Antonette D'Amico, siblings, Louis Gonsalves & Jacqueline Conrad, and grandchild Wyatt Mendoza. He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Peggy (Criss) Gonsavles, children: Christina (Freddy) Mann, Kevin (Brittany) Sevin, Melissa Mathers, Ashley (Darin) Kilpatrick, Lauren Moore, Richard Criss; siblings Romelle Page, Anne Marie (Robert) Edwards, Jeffery (Juli) Gonsavles, Glen (Nicole) Gonsalves and Jason (Brooke) Richards; grandchildren Brianna (Matt) Alderman, Caleb (Lexi) Mann, Carson Mann, Brody Mann, Jayce Sevin, Preslee Sevin, Paislee Sevin, Paige, Brennen, Randy, Maci, Jada, Ella, Brayden, Madison, Tristian, Bella, Liam, Richard, Rylan; great-grandchildren Malachi Alderman, Aribella Alderman, Nevaeh Mann, Wyatt, Lux, Luca; and numerous loved nieces and nephews.

Bruce was a master craftsman who served the Gulf Coast community as a carpenter specializing in cabinetry for more than 30 years, with an eye for detail that leaned to artistry.  The work that is now most cherished are the pieces he created over the years for his family and friends.

Bruce, a man of God, will forever be known for having a kind and tender heart. He was a man who would do anything for his family and ask for little in return - truly generous to a fault.  He was a loving father, grandfather, and friend.  Bruce had a knack for making people around him feel at ease as he was blessed with an abundance of charm. His laugh, humor, and especially fatherly wisdom will be sorely missed.

His mission on this Earth is fulfilled.  His words and example will be carried on by all those who have loved him.

Bradford O'Keefe Funeral Home, O'Neal Road, Gulfport is honored to serve the Gonsalves family.
