Bruce Gade


After being diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer on Dec. 26, 2019, Bruce Gade died on Dec. 19, 2020. Bruce was 67 years old. He is survived by his siblings Susan and Neal Gade, along with many cousins and loving friends. 

Bruce grew up in Walpole, before moving to Florida and working his way up to yacht captain. Many years he traveled the Caribbean Sea, as well as the waters here. His last few years he

gravitated to Martha’s Vineyard, and worked his fiberglass magic on boats for Edgartown Marina and Prime Marina.

Bruce was an easygoing good guy, and a great kisser. He loved entertaining us with his seafaring stories, and made us all laugh at his antics. We were lucky to have him in our lives. He will be missed by all of us whose lives he touched and loved.

A memorial gathering will be held Sunday, July 11. For more details, call Rhonda Conley and leave a message at 508-693-3925.
