Felipe Silva

May 2, 1935 — May 1, 2023

Felipe Silva passed peacefully from this life and was welcomed into the gates of heaven on May 1, 2023, at the age of 87 years.   He was born in San Antonio, Texas on May 2, 1935, to Hilario D and Maria Camacho Silva.


He will be lovingly remembered by his daughters, Cynthia McDonald (Scott), Sandra Wells (Mike), Debi Jimenez, Doreen Metoyer (Tony), and Joyce Silva-Canedo; sons, Robert Silva (Esther), and Philip Silva; brother, Hilario Jr. (Larry) Silva; sister, Maria “Concha” Silva; sisters-in-law, Josie Silva, and Connie Silva; grandchildren, Steven McDonald (Adria), Keith McDonald (Paloma), Mark McDonald (Kimberly), Amanda McDonald, Kara McDonald, Abagail Wells (Steve), Joshua Wells (Alexis), Alisa Wells, Brandon Silva, Nicholas Silva, Nathan Silva, Zachary Silva, Alex Silva, Madison Silva, Jacob Silva, Erica Silva, Katrina Jimenez, Anthony Jimenez, Dallas Canedo (Maggie), Katelyn Shumway (James), Willie Joe Canedo (Lizette), Isabela Silva, Christopher Metoyer, Patrick Metoyer (Rebecca), and Rosie Metoyer; and 50 great-grandchildren.

Felipe is preceded in death by his bride of over 50 years, Joan Silva; parents, Hilario D and Maria Silva; son, Danny Silva; brothers, Jim Silva, Juan (Johnny) Silva; sister, Emilia Segura; sister-in-law Melba Silva; brother-in-law, Juan Segura; and grandson, Christopher Silva


He was always a father, grandfather, and great grandfather that everyone wished they had.  We love him so much and now he will be watching over and guiding us until we are all reunited.  Felipe loved his country and served from January 28, 1955, to April 30, 1978 (23+ years) in the United States Air Force and retired as a Master Sergeant and with a Honorable Discharge.  He was always a shining example of a true and proud veteran.  A true inspiration to all who knew and loved him.  No matter what time of day, he was always available for anyone who needed him, especially his family.


Felipe was also in a Mariachi Trio, where he performed for many events and was loved by his fans.


” Sadly, missed along life’s way, quietly remembered every day…

No longer in our life to share, but in our hearts, you’re always there.” - Unknown Author
