Age 24

John Victor III

Born September 11, 1988 in Spokane, WA, to John Silva Jr. and Teresa Shimer, passed away October 14, 2012 in Walla Walla, WA.

J.J. graduated from Shadle Park High School and worked for The Haskins Co.

He lived for the outdoors; he loved fishing at his favorite lake, Lake Yokum, camping in Chewelah year round, hunting grouse and cutting firewood.

J.J. had a heart of gold and always had smile on his face.

He was constantly on the go and never had enough time to do all he wanted.

He had more stories than the biggest novel, but that was my son, I love him and we will all miss him more than we can say.

He gave his heart and soul to the Lord at New Beginnings Open Bible in 2005.

He is survived by his father, John (J.R.) and Cheri Silva; mother, Teresa Shimer; son, Braiden Victor Silva; half-sisters, Madison Catherine Shimer, Emily Anne Silva, and Gabriella Reyes Shimer; stepbrothers, Anthony M., Jon M., Chris M., and Nicholas Steven Fischer; grandparents, John Victor Silva Sr., Marlene Weiler, Leon Spitz; and numerous other loving family and friends.

J.J. is preceded in death by his grandmother, Catherine Spitz; and uncle, Michael John Spitz.
