I just found about about this senseless tragedy. My heart goes out to you Paul Sr and your family. My heartfelt sympathy to all of, such a tragic loss. Blessing to you all.
Dear Paul Sr. I'm so sorry for you and your familys loss. You allways treated me like a brother and will never forget that. (ABS)
So sad to see another great role model fall to another senseless act. You will be missed but not forgotten.
I didnt know Pauly , but from what i have heard he got along with everyone , was a Good Dad and an all around Good Guy , so my sadness is focused on the Babys so i have decided to use the resources at my disposal to help in the only way i can put on this benefit Concert , my connection to the Silva Family goes way back Scott and Steve were two of the best friends you can have and Kari is the Love of my life even back then our fathers worked together at PG&E and we only lived 10 minute walk from each other To Paulys family i hope in some small way i can help those kids at a better life May God Protect and Care for you all forever , hope to see everyone May 24th @ Don Quixote's Music Hall to celebrate Pauly Silva's life !!!
Dad(Paul) & Jennie Silva & Cyndi & Eric Smith. My heart goes out to you as Pauly's Dad and Mom. You should Never have to bury your own child. To my knowledge there is nothing worse than losing a child. May the outpouring of love you are recieving from friends, family, and even the community be a small balm for your hearts...My heart hurts for you guys and for all my brothers and sisters and all Pauly's brothers too. We all lost an amazing child & brother. May God and your memories of Pauly sustain you. As for Maeva and Pauly's girls you truly are his legacy & I know it was one he was proud of. God Bless you all and you are in my daily prayers. Shalom for our family. May peace reside in our family.

Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell. ~Edna St Vincent Millay
Lots of Love to our family!
I met Paul when he was a toddler (2 yrs old) SC was so safe back then. What happened to make it change so drastically? My heart aches for all his family, but especially for Cyndi. She had her hands more than full taking very good her kids. With all she had to do, she still took time to be my friend, and give me advice. She was also beautiful. (I was a little jealous) Paul got the best features of both parents. It was such a long time ago, but I remember Paul Senior as being a big/husky guy, and gentle. Cyndi, I have never forgotten you & your boys,or the memories. Love to you all. RIP to that tow-headed toddler I knew.
Pauly I remember seeing you on Vanessa's fb page and I remember seeing your comments to her. I really hope you and your family will be ok and alright. I will pray for you and your family. I will be giving your sister Vanessa all of the support I can through this.
Pauly, its hard not smile when I think of you. You're the person who first called me Nate, and it stuck. (Now every time someone calls me that, I think of you) Im so grateful, you came into my life, because through you I met one of my best friends, Maeva. You were like family to me, and the girls and I miss you very much. We are so fortunate to have you're two beautiful daughters and wife in our lives, and I promise to be there for them as best as I can. 'Til we meet again P-unit... Rest In Peace.
Love is in the air, the love for my nephew Pauly, that is. He's brought the whole community and his entire family to tears with his passing. Mostly now we're remembering the funny, crazy stories and memories we share about his fantastic life.
Pauly was a man of the people. Some people call it charismatic , charming, but those are mere adjectives for salesmen and hucksters. Pauly "loved" connecting with people. It was a gift. When he talked to you, he noticed you. It felt like you were the only one in the room, special like, because here was someone who genuinely cared about connecting with you. The outpouring of love from loyal friends and even aquaintances attests to that.
Sometimes the attention he got from it bordered on adulation, and he LOVED it! He was human. He played big, worked hard, and his love and acceptance of others knew no bounds. He reached the depths of human frailty and regret, only to rise to the heights of his potential with the discipline, focus and grace of an athlete. My only hope is, that in his short lifetime, he will have inspired all of us to do as much.
with love to the warrior and teacher, silva pride may an angel guide you up and may you shine down on akk of us love auntie kari silva
Such a mighty presence you had. Your children will feel it as they grow up, through various means. I was a child who's father met an untimely passing and I know they will feel you through the people you have touched, your pictures and family who loved you. I wish you peace Pauly and your family the knowledge they will see you again. Until then....
Dearest pauly you will be missed but never forgotten!
You will always be remembered. From the first day we met at Del Mar Middle school to the last time I saw you in SC. Rest in peace. Michael
I still can't believe this is true. You were such a great friend to me and I won't ever forget the many fun times we shared!!!! You always made me smile no matter what the occasion.

Pauly, thanks for getting up all those Sunday mornings to teach me Escrima. You will be missed by all of us. RIP, Sensei.
It's really really sad that we had to loose another good dude. That song "Only the good die young" is so true at times. I wish his family much LOVE AND RESPECT. Peace from the MIDTOWN S.C.
I love you. You showed me how to demonstrate respect for another. You know how our relations was and now is. My heart cries and is truly broken.
Pauly you are truly one of the great men on this planet. You will be missed by many.this town has lost a great asset and teacher.

We have lost a great asset to this town,but your spirit will live on.I know your looking down with a smile and a fist ,keeping it worm for us we will see you again , tell then my brother tell then
You've been a ritchus person as long as I've known you. When I was younger my brother would tell me how cool you are. Anybody that's had the pleasure of knowing you would agree. Thanks for being a good friend. I guess it's true... the good die young. I know my brother welcomed you into heaven with a big smile that he always had. I also know your shining down on your family and friends with your wings wrapped around them. Now your a guardian angel, something you've always been. I'm sad because your gone but thankful that I had the privileged of knowing you.
You'll always be loved and never forgotten! REST IN PARADISE
You were my first and only love. The hole you left in my life and my heart is too big for anyone to fill. You would be so proud of all the help your daughter and I are getting to get through this difficult time. It saddens me that she'll never get to know you and learn to kick boys' butts from you. I know that you're watching over both of your little angels. I love you and miss you so much.
Please feel to write, your kind sentiments are helping a grieving mother find blessings during this terrible loss. I cannot express enough my appreciation from all who knew Pauly. Thank you! Thank you!
Our deepest condolences to the Silva family from the teachers and students of Pencak Silat Gerakan Suci.
Our prayers are with Pauly and his family.
Pauly, Your missed my friend. Rest In Peace.
I still cant believe your gone its so unreal Pauly, im angry and heartbroken and im trying understand this but i just cant. I love you and will miss you FOREVER!! REST IN PARADISE PAULY SILVA
A Benifit Fund has been set up and this is the link to the PayPal fund for Pauly Silva. You can find it also on the "Never Forget Pauly Silva" Facebook page. Please donate as much or as little as you can for the family. Anything will be much appreciated.
Viv and Family, we cant express how much our heart aches for you and the family. I do know the love you had for him because you smiled from your soul when you told me stories of him. R.I.P. Mr.Silva.
R I P Pauly you will be missed
A loving father, brother, son and friend taken too soon before his time. Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel about Pauly's death. I wish all of you peace, comfort and courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts. There is a sying :
"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal"
And so the memory of Pauly will never die as long as you keep it alive in your hearts.
I send my warmest condolences and caring thoughts for Maeva, Paloma and Pauly's family and friends. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
Pauly, I love you so much and now that your gone I can't say that to you ever again...You made me laugh and you were there for me at that very hurtful time when I needed you the most. We spent everyday with each other. I am so proud of all of your accomplishments, and I know your legacy lives on in your girls. I was always so proud of you too. Now you are God's gain and our loss. I weep for you and I feel like this is a dream my dear little brother and it isn't REALLY happening yet. Just know I will always be your loving older sister and will NEVER forget you...
o balanced teacher
we shall walk again
on the yard
in the sky
under a new moon
and brighter sun.
Pauly... All that comes to my mind is the definition of a loyal, true, genuine person. I love you. Your smile lives in my heart, and you're always in my thoughts. When i think about you up there watching down on us, i hope you're taking some breaks and getting down with all those legendary fighters up there too... I know you gotta show them a thing or two :) Rest in Paradise!!! Until we meet again <3
o balanced teacher we shall walk again on the yard
in the sky under a new moon and brighter sun... for today god has summoned a master.
Man, can't even process that your gone! Had know idea your where in Santa Cruz.... I haven't see you or your fam for over 17 years. Thinking about the trouble we would get into as kids.Makes me really sad to think that we won't get a chance to catch up and hang out. I'm gonna miss you brother. To the Silva family my prayers our with you, from the Solorio family
it takes many months to create a life
and only a second to take it away
we do not know why the ones we love are taken
when or how long we all stay
but what is left behind
in the pictures, stories and prayers
is what is given to us as gifts
when we know that someone is no longer physically there
that pain you feel within your heart
that hurt you cant describe
the loss of word, the empty feeling
that sorrow that makes you cry
it is the ying to our yang
that you never can define
the sorrow we feel
that hurt and pain
is only for a very loved persons life
why do the best always go
why do they always seem to leave
god cant give us his best angels forever
only to teach us what we need
so rest in paradise pauly silva
i know that you are there
and thank you for your beautiful family
that you have given us all to share
RIP. Your legacy lives on and is undeniable through all the kind words from the Santa Cruz community.
Pauly.... I love you brother. This all seems unreal to me because you werte just living with me. Im greatful I got to spend time with you and build memories.

PAULY SILVA.......NEVER FORGOTTEN
Pain, regret and sadness these feelings of helplessness are quite real.
Accompanied by anger and frustration in my heart this is how I feel.
Underestimating how profound the loss of you would be.
Learning how many lives you touched, like fishes in the sea.
Your presence was felt by many yet your absence was felt by more.
Spanning your wings you are now free you will forever soar.
Into the sky your spirit flies and we wait to feel your embrace.
Let the wind from the ocean waves and rays from the sun be your hands upon our face.
Victory is ours in memories, stories and pictures that bring us to tears.
Always and forever Pauly you will be loved and missed beyond your years!

May Pauly Silva rest in peace. Pauly was a good man and my husband's martial arts instructor. He was a friend who worked on our property and advised us on old plumbing. It was an honor to have met him and his wife when they were newly weds. God bless him.
You have been called home much to early for any of us to understand and the void you leave behind is as large as your personality. We love you brother and ask that you watch over us now. My prayers are with your family, Maeva and those beautiful little girls of yours.
Gone before your time. May you rest in peace....
