He also is survived by two sisters, Rosalind Arsenault and Florence Forbes, and one brother, Ronald Silva. In addition, he had numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends, all of whom will never forget the great impact he had on their lives. He was predeceased by two sons, Richard and Barry Silva; and three siblings, Gerald Brown, Dominic Silva and Mary Ann Lipert..
