 CHICO, CA
Brett Silva was a loving husband and father of four beautiful children. He and his beautiful wife Lori were to celebrate their 30 year wedding anniversary this year. Brett was a dedicated teacher, coach, volunteer and friend to many. On January 22nd Brett was in a tragic accident with his son Ian and daughter Isabella that claimed Brett's life. Both Ian and Isabella are in stable condition but are requiring hospitalization at this time. This account is being established to help Lori with immediate support to care for her family and prepare for Brett's memorial service.

I am leaving this post under my Daughter Shelby J Pickard. As a mother to two daughters who were taught and inspired by Mr Silva, I can tell you that in life you hope for people who will believe in your child and make an everlasting change in their lives, who will impact them to be better people. You did that for my girls. I thank you from a loving place in my hear. Mr. Silva and his family, you were blessed like so many people to have such a good person with a soul who impacted thousands of our youth to become better people in this world. I hurt for the loss of your family and of the community who thought the world of him. He will be missed terribly but will also never be forgotten. God Bless all.

Prayers be with you, Silva family. I hope that you are surrounded with warmth and love during this time. Mr. Silva was easily one of his favorite high school teachers. I never forgot how much fun he made learning. As a teacher now, I can only hope to impart on my students a fraction of what Mr. Silva gave to us ♥
