David John Silver, 67, son of the late Lester Carlton Silver and Lillian Silver, passed away at Manchester Memorial Hospital after a brief illness on Oct. 4, 2012, reaching his heavenly journey where his mom welcomed him with open arms.

David was born on Dec. 11, 1944, and was a resident of Manchester all his life. He graduated from Mansfield Training School and was employed by Ward Manufacturing for 20 years. David always in his special way referred to his friends as "Hi, Sport" and was known as the Catalog Kid. David was an angel on earth to all those who knew him. He has special needs and dazzled us beyond what we ever expected.

David is survived by his brother, Carl Silver, and his wife, Sophie, of Manchester; his sisters, Sally Ann Silver of Manchester and Geraldine Hoboth, and her husband, William, of Tolland; along with numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

The family would like to thank all those who cared for David at Crestfield Nursing Home, especially his nurse, Gloria, and during his brief illness at Manchester Memorial Hospital we thank Charlene on 2 East.
