He was the only child of Henry and Edna Ferreira.\r\n\r\nBob, as he liked to be called was raised in Unity and graduated from Unity-Freedom Academy, Class of 1961. He married his high school sweetheart Carol Beaulieu on September 2, 1961.\r\n\r\nBob loved living in Unity and staying connected with many lifelong friends. He was a hard worker and if not at work you could find him always out mowing the lawn, plowing the snow or tinkering on whatever he could find. He was the owner of Ferreira Trucking, which he started while still working a full-time job at the former Chinet Co in Fairfield, or Richard L. Hodges in Unity. Upon his retirement he worked alongside his son Tim Ferreira to make Ferreira Trucking what it is today. Bob’s passion was to be at the garage with all his employees, his dog Max and around the trucks. Asides from the passion of trucks he loved to go to the races and watch NASCAR and happily shared this passion with his children and grandchildren. In his early years he enjoyed hunting, camping and snowmobiling.\r\n\r\nBob was predeceased by his parents Henry Joseph Ferreira and Edna Anderson Ferreira; his son-in-law Michael Dean Jones; and father and mother-in-law, Edward and Edwina Beaulieu.\r\n\r\nHe is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Carol Beaulieu Ferreira.
