I had only been made aware of his website less than a year ago. I learned a great deal from his writings and his research has helped me more than I can convey. The following is the note of his passing posted on his website:
It is with mixed emotions that I take this time to write on behalf of Connecticut River Baptist Church to let you know of Pastor Ken Silva’s passing. Yesterday morning at around 10 a.m., 29 September 2014, Ken was found at home, having passed away. He had succumbed to the strain of the pain he had been enduring for the past few years.
The mixed emotions are sadness at losing our dear brother in Christ – I shall miss his wisdom and guidance – but also joy. Joy because, as Paul noted in 2 Cor. 5:8, ‘We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.’
Yes we know that Ken is now present with the Lord. We can also be thankful in knowing his pain has ended.
We will still miss him deeply.

I’ve started up a few blog posts that I hope to complete soon. Until then, I thought it would be nice to introduce some of his work, the fruits of his labor in Christ.
His passing has left many with heavy hearts. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who are mourning. May the Lord bless you and give you peace.
In Christ Jesus,
