On March 31, 2022, Brother John Silva was taken from us all too soon. Silva was a Senior Building Inspector for the City of Vallejo and a dedicated A member of IBEW Local 1245.
“Ever since he was a toddler he loved to fix everything,” his sister, Amber Clemons, told the Vallejo Times-Herald. “He’d go out and get Dad’s toolbox and say, ‘It’s OK mom, I got this.” Even at the age of 12 he took great pride in building a fence for our dad. So the job with Vallejo was perfect for him.”

Brother Silva had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia just three weeks prior to his passing at age 36. He was undergoing chemotherapy, but seemed to be maintaining a positive outlook during his treatment.
We will all miss him very much and our hearts, and support go out to his young family, including his wife Stacy, daughter Abigail, and son Grant.
Services for Brother Silva will be held this Thursday, April 7 at 11:00 AM at Northgate Christian Fellowship at 2201 Lake Herman Road in Benicia. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please consider making a donation for Stacy and the kids at the GoFundMe link below.
