George A. Silvia

George A. Silvia, 81 of Falmouth, passed away peacefully on April 8th, the 12th anniversary of the passing of his daughter, Patty Gail Silvia. 

George was born on July 20, 1936 the eldest son of Manuel and Mary Silvia of Falmouth. George was raised and lived in Falmouth all of his life, alongside his late wife, Patricia (Wright) Silvia who predeceased him in 2004.

George was an avid bowler, traveling all over Massachusetts throughout his years, participating in many tournaments. He was the past President of the Cape Cod Ten Pin Bowling Association.  George was also a past member of the Otis Fish and Game Club, Cape Cod Beagle Club, and the Fresh Pond Holy Ghost Society.

George lived his life to the fullest, and always put others and their needs before his own. He always put his family and all those dear to his heart, first and foremost.  He always loved a good joke, and anyone in his presence was guaranteed a laugh and a smile. He will be missed beyond measure, but knowing he has been reunited with his loving wife, brings great comfort.

George is survived by his four children, George Silvia (Sandra) of North Carolina, Elizabeth Marks (Jim), Marie Gonsalves (Paul), all of Falmouth, and Michelle DeNisi (Ronald) of Florida; ten grandchildren and nine great grandchildren; his two brothers, Gilbert (Barbara) Silvia and Robert Silvia, all of Falmouth; as well as several nieces and nephews.

Visiting hours will be held from 5-8 PM on Thursday, April 12 at the Chapman, Cole & Gleason Funeral Home, 475 Main Street, Falmouth. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 AM on Friday, April 13 at St. Anthony’s Church, 167 East Falmouth Hwy (Route 28), East Falmouth. Burial will follow in the St. Anthony Cemetery.

The family would like to extend their deepest gratitude to the staff at the Mary McCarthy house in Sandwich, for the care they bestowed upon George in his final days.
