New London - David Paul Silva, 70, of New London, passed away Dec. 6, 2023. He was born Oct. 2, 1953, in New London, to the late Virginia Card and Anthony Silva.
David was a dedicated electrician who spent many years working at Electric Boat before retiring. He then continued his career as an electrician at Connecticut College, where he eventually retired in 2016. Throughout his career, David displayed exceptional skill and a strong work ethic.

He is also survived by his wife Janice; and his cherished grandchildren: Calissa, Justin, Damian, Ava, Julien, Kayla, Colin and Milli. David's memory will be cherished by his uncle, Charlie Card; and his cousins, Barry, Crystal and Diane.
A private memorial service will be held to honor David's life and allow his loved ones to come together in remembrance. The details of the service will remain private to respect the family's wishes. In this time of grief, we extend our deepest sympathies to David's family and friends. May the memories of his kind heart, strong spirit and genuine love for those around him bring solace during this difficult time.
