Jeffrey C. Bezanson, of Bridgewater, passed away from a brief battle with Cancer, in his home peacefully, surrounded by his family on February 25, 2021, at the age of 75. Jeff was born in Boston and was the son of the late Aleta L. (Flanders) and Peleoman C. Bezanson. Jeff had made his home in Bridgewater for the past 45 years, with his wife Amelia V. Bezanson, where they raised three children: Carl R. Bezanson of Woodland Hills, CA, Aleta M. Bezanson of Bridgewater, and the late Benjie Bezanson. He is also survived by four grandchildren and one great-grandson. Jeff dedicated 33 years of his life as a Chef at Brockton Hospital, where he made many life-long friendships. He golfed with the "boys" as often as he could, and enjoyed his winters in Venice, FL with Amelia, after his retirement. Anyone who knew Jeff, knew that his dress clothes would definitely have paint on them; he was the type of guy who would travel to NY for a hotdog. Instead of saying hello, he preferred "Greetings". Jeff smiled with his eyes; he could fix anything; and he loved his family deeply. When he met his wife in Boston, he packed up his VW bus and drove to Guatemala to get her. Jeff had many titles: he was a husband, dad, granddad, great-granddad, chef, carpenter, friend, listener and the Rock for his family. Jeff had a deep family connection to Martha's Vineyard and will be buried in Chilmark alongside his family. A service will be held in the Spring once the daffodils bloom and the Pinkletinks sing.

I am sorry to hear of Jeff's death, I will miss him. We often chatted while he faithfully mowed the sides of the shared road in Chilmark. He was an important link to a Chilmark past that has been a big part of my family's life. I am sorry for your great loss.

Dear Amelia and family,

I was sorry to hear the news about Jeff's passing. I can't imagine how we will fill his shoes on Chocker's Lane. He was a great neighbor and always good for a chat. I loved hearing his stories about the Vineyard and his family. His guarding spirit spirit will always be protecting Short Beach.

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. Jeff was a long time friend of our family. I got to know Jeff when I personally came to work for Brockton Hospital. My brother was privledged to know him first. He had a great sense of humor, and made my Job at the hospital a pleasure. He was always there to help set up our meetings and functions with a straight faced smile. Aleta and Carl you know your Dad was a gift. Amelia you got to share the love of your life with us all.
Thank you. He is with the angels and Benji where he loved the most, the Vineyard.

I worked with Jeff for 25 years at Brockton Hospital. I’m so sorry to learn of his passing.
Jeff was a wonderful chef who cared deeply about the food served to patients, staff and visitors. More importantly Jeff was an outstanding individual. He was always willing to lend a hand and to step out of his comfort zone to make Brockton Hospital a better place.
Jeff often spoke of his family with both love and devotion. He loved the Vineyard and so how fitting it is that it will be his final resting place.
I’ll always remember our golf games, our “chats” and Jeff’s attempts to teach me to cook.
May he Rest In Peace and May his memory be a blessing.
