Russell Gabriel Silva, 36, passed away unexpectedly July 30, 2016, in a car accident along with his girlfriend, Pamela Burns Bridge. He was born July 30, 1980, in Dover-Foxcroft, the son of Russell and Peggy (Bridge) Silva. He had most recently been employed by Herrick Excavation and enjoyed his co-workers and his work as a mechanic. Russell will always be remembered by all who knew him and loved him for his laugh and for always being ready to lend a helping hand. In his spare time, he could be found hunting, fishing,
and hiking with his family. His passions were guns and hot sauce.
Russell is survived by his children, Gabriel and Sarah Silva; Pam's son, Royce Bridge; his parents, Russell and Peggy Silva; and his sister, Bobby-Lyn Silva and her fiance, Bravis Cullicutt, and their children, Quentin and Heston. He will be remembered by his extended family and many friends.
