I am humbled by the outreach and support so many of you gave to IBEW 1245 member John Silva’s family in when he transitioned in March of 2022 (Johnny’s In memoriam). Like a pebble dropped in a pond, there is no doubt that his young family, his extended family and all of you, his Local 1245 family, suffer his loss every day, but we can hope our love, support and compassion can help ease that suffering and bring some comfort to each other and still the waters once again.
John’s family has set up a website that has a multitude of apparel and merchandise that can help us all keep his spirit strong and help out his family even more. The site is called JohnnySilvaStrong, check it out and please keep his continuation bright for the world to see.
Here is the message I received from his sister, Amber:
“Johnny’s Site is up and running for a week long. Products will ship within two weeks of the site closing and then I will have all the inventory. I will distribute here in Benicia or me sister Crystal will bring to Vacaville for pick up there as well. I will do a shipping option as well if you plan to order and want your items shipped just have people message me. We thank you so much for loving John so much and all of your support for his family. #johnnystrong
