Sal Shannon Silva
April 10, 1967 ~ June 9, 2017

Shannon Silva, age 50, left us unexpectedly on June 9, 2017 in Ridgway, Colorado. He was a good friend, co-worker, and a very generous guy. With every personal pain and suffering he always gave out more than 100% to help people. He would always greet you with a smile and “Hello”. He loved his dog “Simba”, camping, cars, and talking to just about anyone, and he had the best laugh. You would often see him sitting in front of the Conoco Store on the bench and chatting up and entertaining everyone that walked by. He was a great man that will be terribly missed by everyone that knew him. He was always joking around and laughing at work and could always find a way to make light of any situation. He was always the first to open the door for you or help you carry your groceries to your car. He wouldn’t let anyone give him anything and often told you to give it to someone that needed it more than he did. Before Shannon came to Ridgway he donated his time to the MADA Homeless Shelter ran by St. Mary Catholic Church in Montrose, in order to give back to the people that needed to eat every day. Shannon grew up in Texas and is preceded in death by his mother, father, and brother. There will be a Memorial Service on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at the Ridgway Town Park. Donations may be made in Shannon’s name at Alpine Bank in Ridgway. Crippin Funeral Home and Crematory is assisting with arrangements. (970)249-2121
