Orland Michael Silva, long-time resident of Pleasanton, passed away on May 11, 2012 at the age of 71. He was in his home with his wife and children at his side. Orland was born in Albany and raised in Rodeo, California. Upon graduating from John Swett High School, he went to work for PG&E and retired 33 years later. He then went on to work for the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory for 10 years. His love was for Bible Study Fellowship, where he could study and teach about his Lord, Jesus Christ. He is survived by his loving wife of nearly 50 years, Paula; his children and their spouses: Pam & Josh Shinnick, Kathy & Andy Eelsing, Tim & Dawn Silva, Jennifer & Danny Sweeney and Mary & Angelo Scavone; as well as 15 grandchildren: Tyler, Jacob, Abby, Jason, Ryan, Brennan, Amy, Hannah, Faith, Tessie, Tommy, Travis, Mady, Mitchell and Leah. He enjoyed his family, the Forty Niners, Granada High Football and playing his saxophone. Many will remember him as “Papa”. His warm smile and loving spirit will be missed.
