Silver Errol R, age 79 Bridgewater

With deep sadness we announce the passing of our dear husband, father and grandfather on Sept 10 2021, at the South Shore Regional Hospital. He was born in Halifax and he grew up in Dartmouth and spent his time paddling and skating on Lake Banook, camping on the many islands and sneaking forbidden rides on the local milk wagon.

He lived a full life and is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Doreen (Hennigar) Silver, his 3 daughters Laura (Gilles), Moncton, Jenny (Craig) Barbados, Becky (Don), Conquerall Bank, his 4 grandchildren, Julia, Isabelle, Gaberiel and Declan. His sister Marilyn (Don) Williams, his 3 nieces Ellen, Kelly and Angela. He is predeceased by his parents, Roy Silver and Ethel (Henley) Silver, his sister Mary Sollows (Martin Silver) and his granddaughter Abigail.

He attended Saint Mary's University for two years, then he went into the Canadian Armed Forces where he spent 3 years as a Military Police Officer. After leaving the forces attended the Victoria General School of Respiratory Therapy.
He and Mom moved to Bridgewater in 1972 where he started the Respiratory Department in Bridgewater. He worked for 47 years at the South Shore Regional Hospital. He loved his career and was happy to go to work every single day.

He had a passion for traveling and planning family vacations, especially to Disney World, he had visited at least 10 times and it was truly his happy place.

He was an avid supporter of all his daughter's activities, and was the first to volunteer and was always the loudest cheerleader in the crowd.

He loved his community and served in any way that he could. He was a devoted boy scout leader of 23 years, a church warden, on the board of school trustees, Parks and Recreation Commissioner and a basketball coach just to name a few.

We would like to give thanks to his wonderful team of caregivers, his favorite nurse Jeannie Rafuse-Boland (AKA the real pretty one), Dr Chaisson, Dr Edmonds, Chelsea Coolen and the entire staff of the Medical Unit. You guys treated him with love, dignity and respect. Special thanks to our dear friend Monica for all of the care and compassion. You are an angel and have helped our family more that you will ever know.
