My deepest condolences to the Silva family. Danny was one of the sweetest and kindest man I ever knew. He loved and bragged about his family, especially his great nephews and great nieces.
Maureen Morrison Bohnwagner

Danny was larger than life. He was one of the most honorable man I have ever had the privilege to know. Always helping his family, concerned with other people's welfare. He lived the life he was given with a tremendous sense of humor and grace. Danny touched the lives of everyone he encountered. He was a great friend and I will miss him

As soon as I walked into his room he had at least three questions for me, and before I could start to answer the first one, I got that huge smile, which was his way of trying to get an edge on me. He loved his family, playing cribbage, and talking Boston sports. I can still see him racing around the back parking lot of building 8. RIP my friend. Just Jim

My sincerest condolences. Danny was an earth angel --kind, generous and a heart that overflowed with love for his family and friends. Maria and Gloria, may the memories of your Saturday visits and holiday memories bring you much comfort. You brought much joy to Danny. His nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews were the light of his life. Sincerely,
Deb Harder

You will be missed. Jim Wilcox

Danny was a very good man. It was an honor knowing him. He had the sweetest smile and lots of stories. He loved his family, and I hope that they know how much. I will miss him.

You will be forever missed

I am going to miss our cribbage games, our banter, the laughs and that smile…. I am at a loss.
Crissy Tompkins

I'm devastated I cant be there. I will miss him. I retired a year and a half ago but came back 2 months after retiring because they needed nurses during Covid. Danny was there when I started my nursing career almost 33 yesrs ago. He was the last one left. I feel an era has come to a end and I'm so broken hearted. I'm so sorry I can't be at his services as I just came down to Florida for vacation. Rest in peace Danny . Until we meet again 💔

Maria Parks (Marques) You brought me love, piece and happiness after war you calmed me down you guided me through school and for that I will never forget you! I will forever help others because you showed that we can still make a difference!!

Coming from Primary care to spinal cord was a big transition for me. Meeting and caring for Danny make it worth it. Dan you'll be missed.

I’m very sorry for your loss. It was an honor taking care of Danny at the VA. He always kept me updated with current news! Rest in Piece Danny💔
Maria Spinola

Dan was the best! I was proud to be his wingman. He was an inspiration to me and many others. He was the older brother to me. He will be missed.
Martin Conboy

My sincere condolences to the Silva family, Danny was full of love and it's evident that he was truly loved. 81B will never be the same. He will be truly missed. The smile that I get every time that I opened that door with a cup of coffee ("just black", he'll say), will just brighten my whole day. I missed our morning routine, we'll have our morning coffee, and he'll update me on what's going in the world and talk about Gloria, Maria, the nieces and the nephews, he'll show me new pictures if there was any, and I will update him with what's going on with my family and show him pictures of my girls. When I go on vacation for a week and come back he will say "where have you been woman". He was always so thoughtful, if he didn't see me for a few days, he will make sure to find out I was OK. He will always be in my heart and I am truly honored to have known such a wonderful soul. 💔 Rest in Peace
Woudelyne Jean

My light shines brighter because of you!! You gave me the kick in the ass I needed!! We love you and will miss you dearly!!!

Prayers rest in peace

I will miss our Thursday morning visits. I am all the more, better for gaining you as a friend and thanks for being first my patient and then friend. The "feast" will never be the same , especially Saturday afternoon and every time I pass a Chateau Restaurant. I will think of you. Till we meet again, Vay Con Dios my friend and brother.

There isn't much of anything Danny did'nt know about, so he was usually my answer man. You can't just replace some people in our lives. He meant more to me than he probably knew. I hate to see him leave as does everyone, but he explained everything to me a few weeks ago while waiting to go somewhere with his sisters and as hard as it was for me to listen to, Danny made the right decision for all the right reasons one last time. I spent some time with him the day before and I had the best talk to him and believe he was an attentive listener for that period of time. It's not often we say this to someone before they expire, and I probably should have told him sooner, but I had to tell him, 'Danny, you're truly a Good Man!", just once in my life. I'll see you when I get there....
Dan Shaul
