Obituary for George W. Silva

George William Silva, a lifelong resident of Forest Park, has passed away. George was born to Maria and the late Hernan Silva. He was the father of Alexandra Silva, Robert Silva, and Stephanie Hahn-Silva, and godfather to Michael Pascua. George was the older brother of Nancy Silva and Margie Zilligen, uncle of Sean, Mallory, Courtney, and Rachel Zilligen, nephew of David Silva, cousin of Teresa and Anise Silva, and friend to many.

George attended St. Bernadine School and Proviso East High School and eventually opened his own automotive repair shop in Forest Park. George’s Automotive Service has operated in the alley of 7222 Madison Street since June 9, 1985. When not fixing cars, George enjoyed racing American sedans, collecting Matchbox toy cars, and listening to Rush, Pearl Jam, and XRT.

In lieu of flowers, the family appreciates donations to organizations George supported over the years: St. Bernadine’s Catholic Church and the Forest Park Kiwanis Club.

Visitations will be held on Friday, February 14 at Zimmerman Funeral Home in Forest Park from 4-8pm and Saturday, February 15 from 9:30-11am, with a memorial service beginning at 11am, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery.
