Vincent Silva Jr., of Carver died unexpectedly on February 2 at the age of 59.
Vincent was the loving son of the late Vincent Silva Sr and Anna (Perry) Silva of Rochester. He grew up in West Bridgewater and was a graduate of West Bridgewater High School, Class of 1972.

He loved hunting, fishing, and blue crabbing with loved ones. He knew something about everything and was a wonderful “teacher” to all. Vincent was a lifelong lover of dogs and somewhat of a dog whisperer. He was kind, compassionate, intelligent and selfless.
Vincent was the loving companion of Nell Rostocki of Carver and former husband of Karen L. (Shepard) Silva of Middleboro. He was the loving father of Cassandra L. Silva of Carver, and Julianna M. Silva of Middleboro. Brother of Michael and Elaine Silva of Berkley, Lynne and Greg Butzirus of FL, Lisa and Jim Munro of Rochester, and Jeffrey and Brenda Silva of Middleboro.
