John Raymond Silva

May 6, 1930 — July 14, 2022

John Raymond Silva of Fremont, Ohio entered fully into the presence of the Lord on Thursday, July 14, 2022 after 5 years of battling dementia. John passed peacefully at his home with family members at his side. As John's soul goes to be with Christ, his body is bestowed to further the education of the medical students at the University of Toledo Medical College in hopes to find a cure of his disease for future generations and to prepare the students knowledge and confidence to fulfill their careers. He was born on May 6, 1930 in Conception, Texas, the son of the late Guadalupe and Marcela (Salinas) Silva. His family moved to Findlay, Ohio in 1941, where he met the love of his life Stella P.

After retiring from Whirlpool, John worked for the Fremont Country Club for 5 years.
