Silansky, Joseph Lloyd Paul Jr.

Joseph Lloyd Paul Silansky, Jr., 84, of Unionville, passed away peacefully on September 23, 2016. He is survived by his loving daughters, Christine M. Silansky of Unionville and Mary (Francini) Silansky and her husband, Bill of Farmington, grandchildren, Mikala and Rachel, his brother Perry and his former sister-in-law, Joan Nugent, his special nephew, Paul who he thought of as the son he never had, his niece, Cheryl and nephew, Mark. Born on April 28, 1932 in Hartford, CT, he was the son of Joseph Silansky, Sr. and Anna (Franz) Silansky. He graduated from Windsor High School and worked alongside his dad at Windsor Radio and Television. After serving honorably in the US Navy during the Korean War, he continued his career as an electronics technician. He raised his family in Farmington and blessed them with a vacation each summer on Cape Cod. He enjoyed bowling and golfing and whatever he could do to help his family. He was a long-time member of the Lion’s Club in Unionville and a devoted parishioner of St. Mary Star of the Sea in Unionville where he served as an usher at the 4:30 Mass. He will be remembered for his heart of gold. The family extends a special thank you to the staff at Avon Health Center for all their love and support. He loved his grandchildren, Rachel and Mikala and was so proud of them. We will always cherish the gift of Cape Cod he gave us and the love of the beach and ocean. May you always ride the waves and smell the salt air you loved so much. We love you and miss you so much already.

    I am very sorry to read of the loss of, Mr. Silansky, Jr. With his love and joys, I know he was an amazing man. I won’t pretend to know what you’re going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is John 11:25, which says, ” Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you and, I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl,

    Chris and Mary,
    I just learned about your dads passing and to you both and the rest of the family I offer my deepest sympathies. I have many fond memories of Joe, especially on the golf course. Where he is going I’m sure he won’t have any problem getting a tee time.
