Family & friends, thank you all for your thoughts and prayers throughout this trying time for our family. We have created an event so that we can prepare to remember and rejoice the life of Silvestre Maldonado. I am asking if you plan to attending, please choose the options below. I want everyone to feel comfortable, well fed, and above all SAFE.

A Vigil Service will be held at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 1200 S. Bagdad Road, Leander, Texas 78641 on Thursday, June 25 at 6:00 P.M.

*During these times of evolving change in our society, I have taken CDC standards to a new level to make family and friends safe through the entire life celebration of Silvestre Maldonado’s event.

*Our families safety is our up most priority during this time; the funeral home where the vigil will be held has Covid-19 guidelines in place. Unlike a normal vigil there will not be any small groups in a room looking over dad. Guests will follow social distancing. Guests will go in with masks, or one will be provided, along with sanitizer. There will be many stages in the vigil, guests will start in one room and continue to different areas inside the building to see dad‘s life; a continuous walk down memory lane. Following the next morning at 11:00 A.M. we will celebrate dad‘s life at Saint Margaret Mary’s. Our local city of Cedar Park is in phase two and currently our church will allow 250 guests seated at social distance. Once again you will be asked to wear masks and follow CDC guidelines. Safety is my main concern, dad would want his family and friends to give love and support to his wife Lidya.

*Many members on both sides of the family have severe medical issues, I understand deeply and I apologize for these unfortunate diseases. I personally have had a stroke and survived two types of cancer, safety for this event is extremely important for my family and I.

A reception will be hosted by the family at Rock & Rolls Sushi Lounge immediately following the service at Rock & Rolls Sushi Lounge, 1850 S. Lakeline Blvd., Unit #201, Cedar Park, Texas 78613, (512)649-2222 .

RECEPTION *Our reception lounge is closed to the public; the restaurant has been personally walked by our mayor and local health officials. All plates are small in size and passed on disposable boats/squares with single use utensils. Restaurant servers will be passing plates and staging a long cocktail counter.

Who knew this would be the last time I'd see you alive. Here is the last picture we took all together at Tamara' and Tyler's wedding two years ago. We had fun danced laughed and we even danced to mexican music. Tamara' made sure of that. We were the only Mexicans there and the rest were gringos. Hahaha! I love you brother and miss you.

Hello Lydia and the entire family.
God Bless each of you during this difficult time. I was saddened to hear of Beto's illness and passing. God will give you strength and it is comforting to know that God is holding Beto in his arms and one day you will surely unite together again.
Please know that you are in my prayers and in my sibling's thoughts. I can not even imagine the pain you are feeling, but I will keep you, your children, and grandchildren in my prayers.
Love you all...Susie ... His smile and joyful personality are "gems" that I will always remember.

Our warmest sympathies and prayers to Silvestre's family.
I met Silvestre while working at Reliable in San Antonio District 94 in the early 1990's. He was a caring and fun loving co-worker. I treasure the time that we had together.
May his soul rest in peace. GOD BLESS!

We are so sorry for your loss. Losing our loved ones is the hardest and saddest event in our lives. We would like to share the hope that we have. Jesus Christ assured us of the ressurection of all those who have fallen asleep in death. Just like himself was resurrected. We know that missing and needing their companionship will seem an insurmountable task but we Pray that someday your memories of him will be less painful. May Jehovah ease your pain and help you lean on the beautiful hope of the ressurection.

My older, tall, dark, and handsome cousin Silver ... he was always in good spirits. He always had a smile on his face and was very welcoming every time I saw him.

Through the years I have been able to keep up with my joyful cousin Silver via Facebook. He would always send me funny messages just to keep in touch. Also ... By viewing all his Facebook posts .... I knew that God had definitely
blessed him with such a beautiful loving family that he loved with all his heart.

Yes ... I will miss him dearly, but he will always live in our hearts and memories.

May God bless all his loved ones as we pray for the repose of his soul. Amen.
