Ronald D. Silva was born May 21, 1960 in Raton, New Mexico to Thomas Silva and Carrie Duran.
Ronnie passed away Friday May 21, 2017 in Tucson Arizona.
Ronnie had been involved in an auto accident 33 years ago that left him a quadriplegic. Even with his paralysis Ronnie worked, drove a vehicle, went fishing and enjoyed life to the fullest and an incredible work ethic. He always had a big smile and positive outlook on life. Ronnie never complained about any of his problems and he always had a joke to tell to make others laugh. He was always the first to make jokes about himself and had the most forgiving and loving heart. He loved sports especially basketball and the Minnesota Vikings.
Ronnie was preceded in death by his parents, Thomas and Carrie (Duran) Silva, his maternal and paternal grandparents.
He is survived by his sister Kathy Cordova, brothers, Michael (Mercy), Tommy (Toni), Danny and Freddie Silva. He is also survived by several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great nieces, and nephews and cousins as well as abundance of friends. He will be missed by all.
