  • Gregory Joseph Silveri



Gregory Joseph Silveri of Warwick passed away peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus on Tuesday, Jan. 16, 2018, one month short of his 47th birthday.

Gregory was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and a resultant seizure disorder shortly after birth. Regardless of his level of ability, Gregory’s determination, will and fighting spirit were evident from an early age.

With God’s strength, he persisted and his big, bright, loving personality shone through. Gregory’s smile and laugh would fill a room, and they will live on in the hearts of all those who were blessed with them.

Gregory loved his dad patting his chest, loved his “job” (playing with a homemade plastic tube fashioned into a toy for him) and loved his mom’s pumpkin pie and lasagna. Then again, who doesn’t?

The Silveri family would like to express sincere gratitude to friends and family who cared for Gregory and offer special thanks to those healthcare professionals over the years who truly saw Gregory, cared for him with the dignity and respect he deserved, and loved him like one of their own.

Matthew 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

Gregory’s immediate family plans for a private memorial in the near future.

He is survived by his parents, Greg and Rosa of Warwick; his brothers Scott Silveri and wife Shana of Santa Monica, California, and Lee Silveri and wife Isis Silveri of Monsey; and his sister Sarah Silveri-Miller and husband Rob of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania; his nieces Chiara and Elisabetta and his nephew, Giovanni.

Anyone looking to give in Gregory's memory is asked to donate to the Gregory Silveri Fund at the Orange Regional Medical Center Foundation by using the link below. In addition to providing compassionate care during his final days, Orange Regional tended to Gregory with increasing frequency over recent years. Gregory's many needs and his inability to give voice to his own experience posed challenges that were met always with empathy and unparalleled professionalism by the hospital's staff. The fund established in his name will create a program to further educate staff and deepen their understanding, and ability to care for, children and adults like Gregory. https://www.ormc.org/giving/donate-online

Arrangements were made by Lazear-Smith & Vander Plaat Memorial Home, 17 Oakland Avenue, Warwick.
