Obituary of Manny da Silva

DA SILVA, Manny – Tragically, on June 3rd, 2021, Manny da Silva died in Chatham at the age of 35.  Proud father of Lincoln Manuel da Silva. Beloved son of Manuel & Christine da Silva, Chatham. Loving brother of Paul & his wife Brandi and Adam & his fiancé Elizabeth. Proud uncle of Nolan and Landon da Silva. Dear nephew of Carlos & his wife Lori, Maria & her husband Mike Mitrovic, Grace & her fiancé Dan, John & his wife Michaela, Georgina & her husband George Borges, Ginette Pilon, Denis & his wife Cheryl Pilon, Gary Pilon, Alain Pilon and Linda Pilon. Also survived by Lincoln’s mother Madison Alves, many cousins and his extended family in Canada, Portugal and the United States. Predeceased by his grandparents Delminda and Manuel da Silva, Jeannine and Paul Pilon and his godmother Doreen Pilon.


Manny’s proudest achievement was being a father to his adorable son Lincoln. In life, he was an incredibly compassionate and caring person. He was affectionately known as someone who could fix any tool or device due to his ingenuity. Most importantly, his greatest gift to us all was his heart. Whether in person, or on the telephone, an exchange was always concluded with an “I Love You”. Manny’s love for his son, family and friends is irreplaceable and he will be deeply missed.
