David Ferreira

Services & interment have been held for David Ferreira, formerly of East Boston & Somerville. David passed following a long struggle with lung cancer, congestive heart failure & emphysema on Tuesday, September 3rd in the Eastpointe Rehabilitation & Skilled Care Center of Chelsea.

Born & raised in Chelsea, he spent most of his life in the East Boston area. David was one of God’s “special children” living & appreciating all that God had bestowed upon through the devotion of his sibling & friends. He was a longtime member of the East Boston Social Center, where he attended Connections Social Events for years. There, he had many friends who gave him much joy. He eagerly collected action DVDs & horror movies. He was an “A” fan of the Boston Red Sox regardless of their rather poor time, they are having. And also, as so many other Red Sox fans, David enjoyed going out to long lunches or early supper with a group for a feast of hot dogs and popcorn. Dressing nicely was also one of David’s hallmarks especially with his many fine leather coats & matching hats.

He was the beloved son to the late Arthur A. Ferreira & the late Gloria (Curzi) Ferreira of East Boston. He is the cherished brother to Arthur A. Ferreira & his wife, Sharon of Bend, Oregon, Patricia Ferreira of West Roxbury, Theresa “Terry” Salerno & her husband, Nicholas of Orient Heights, East Boston, Phyllis Hawkins & her husband, Robert of Hollywood, Florida, Emily Murray & her husband, Mark of West Boylston, MA & Lawrence Mangone & his wife, Olga of Winthrop. David has many loving cousins, nephews & nieces throughout the North Shore Community.
