"Life is better with rock 'n' roll"

David A. Silvia, 67, formerly of Bristol, passed away on May 25, 2023, at the Veterans Medical Center in Providence.  

Born in Providence, RI, he was the son of the late Arthur and Lucy (Nastri) Silvia.  He is survived by his daughters Melissa Almeida of Waterbury, CT, and Erica Rosa of Swansea, MA; grandchildren: Corey Almeida, Jordan Almeida, Maquil Almeida, and Daishell Almeida. He was the brother of Kathy Silvia of Cumberland and the late Carl Silvia.

Mr. Silvia was a graduate of Bristol High School and served in the Coast Guard for 14 years. He was employed as a truck driver for MS Carriers before retiring and was a former volunteer for the Bristol Fire Department. David was the type of person who would give the shirt off his back for anyone who needed it. David enjoyed spending his time going to rock concerts and traveling the road. He also loved spending time with his family and friends. He was always an advocate for those who could not advocate for themselves.
