Keith Richard Silva
October 28, 1976 – September 15, 2018
Cheerful Soul...Super Easy Going...Good Hearted Man
Keith Richard Silva, age 41, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, September 15, 2018 at the Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. Keith’s father and sister proudly shared how he really cared for people and how helpful he was when he saw someone who had a need that he could fill the gap in helping them. Keith really loved being outdoors driving high performance muscle cars, his motorcycles and took flying lessons so that he could even fly in the sky. He had a passion for radio controlled remote airplanes. Keith attended Western Carolina University and will mostly be known and remembered as a good son, brother, uncle, friend and he will be greatly missed by all.
Those left to cherish Keith’s memories are his father, Kenneth Silva of Bessemer City, North Carolina; sister and her companion: Alison Silva and Bryce Sasso of Bessemer City, North Carolina; niece and nephew: Robert Louis Sasso and Renee Ann Sasso; cousin: Karen Snell; his best friend: Paul Jenkins and many other close friends; and not to forget his faithful companion Jack.
Keith was preceded in death by his mother Debra Jeffries Silva who passed away in 1999.
