Gilbert Bermudez Obituary

Gilbert Bermudez, age 68, of New Castle, Delaware went home peacefully on Monday, December 12th, 2023, to be with the Lord. He joins his son, Gilberto, who passed three months ago, at age 43 and his wife of 44 years, Joyce who passed in August of 2021.

Gilbert is survived by his daughter, Marita Bermudez Torres, son-in-law Rolando Torres Jr, granddaughters, Liliana Torres and Joyana Torres, and grandson Leonidas Torres, all of whom he cherished dearly. He is also survived by his siblings Erminia Francis, Jeremias Bermudez, Damaris Rivera, Mickey Bermudez, and Merrari Bermudez, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

Gilbert was born in Vineland, New Jersey on May 5, 1955, to Gilberto and Rosa Maria (Calderon) Bermudez.

After attending Richard Stockton University, he honorably served in the United States Navy and the Navy Reserves for twenty-five years. During that time, Gilbert spent a tour on board a submarine tender, which took him to many ports of call throughtout Europe and the Middle East. He especially loved visiting Spain.

Gibert’s joy was his wife, children, and family. He had a wonderful sense of humor. Gilbert enjoyed playing his guitar; and worshipping at his brother Jerry’s church, singing and praying. Gilbert took to heart these two verses from the Bible; Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith,” and John 11:25-26, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though they die, and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.”

A funeral service will be held on Friday, January 26th, 2024, at Corleto-Latina Funeral Home in Wilmington, DE at 11:00 a.m. Burial will follow at 1 o’clock p.m. at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Bear, DE
