Glenn J. Gonsalves, 58, of Newport, RI, passed away unexpectedly Friday, July 27, 2018. He was the fiancé of Jennifer O'Brien.
Born in New Bedford, son of Isabella (Sylvia) Gonsalves of Fairhaven and the late Donald J. Gonsalves, he grew up in Fairhaven and lived in New Bedford prior to moving to Newport eight years ago. He was a graduate of Fairhaven High School and St. Joseph's College, in Maine. Glenn had worked as a school teacher for many years for the New Bedford Public Schools until 2006.
Glenn enjoyed traveling and spending time with his family while on his summer vacations. He loved music, sunning at the beach, holidays, especially Christmas, working out and sports (all the New England teams). He was beloved by many of his former students who would comment on what an impact he had made on their lives. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
Survivors include his mother and fiancé, Jennifer; two daughters, Elizabeth C. W. Gonsalves and Emily M. W. Gonsalves both of New Bedford; a son, Matthew J. White of New Bedford; a granddaughter, Harper A. White; a sister, Karen J. Ciccone and her husband Rick of Fairhaven; his former wife, Jennifer (White) Smith of New Bedford and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
