Russell W. Fonseca

December 14, 1960May 13, 2020

Russell W. Fonseca (Rock) 59, spread his wings & took flight to be at peace with the Lord on May 13, 2020. He was born December 14, 1960 in Barnstable, MA. He attended Bridgeport schools & later on in life moved to Harwich, MA where he resided. He leaves to cherish his memories the love of his life, Nora Lopes & their son Aaron, his sisters Nancy Fonseca (Mike), Elizabeth Taylor (Reggie) of Bridgeport, brothers Donald & Joseph Fonseca of Bridgeport, David Fonseca of Las Vegas & many nieces & nephews. He was predeceased by parents, Mary & Deacon Donald Fonseca. Russell worked as a Carpenter & loved fishing & his Patriots. Russell journeyed through life leaving footprints of love, joy & kindness & even when they are gone, we can still look back & clearly see the trail he left behind-a trail bright with hope that invites us to follow. He will forever & truly be missed.

I am very sorry for your loss Nora and all of his family. I just found out today June 21st that Russell had passed away. When we 1st moved to our home and back to Harwich he was a handy helper of our home with mowing,painting, and planting. He actually taught me how to plant a shrub and a lilac bush that still remains. The shrub is healthy and large&the lilac which has always been very green leaves and full. Last year when I last saw him I mentioned that it just would never grow any lilacs. "He said to toss some lime on it and see if that helps and smiled." This spring around the time of your passing my friend I had 4 bunches of lilacs! Russell was soft spoken,strong,and very kind& always a gentlemen. He had a nice smile and a great laugh. Life is short &I was always happy that he& Nora were together, a friend of mine also. Rest in Peace & Peace to all you have loved and left behind. Sincerely, Mary Rita Leyva

Uncle Russell...that’s what the boys always called you. They had so many fun times with you and Aunty Nora when they were little boys. Even as men now we still talk about the weekends they spent with you both making forts behind the Oak Street house and playing trucks in the sand. Thank you for loving them so much. We will miss you always but smile when we think of you forever.

Love, Terry, Paul, Trevor and Andre
