Beloved husband of 44 years to Jean M. (Healey) Silverio of Hingham.  Loving Father of Susan Sontag and her husband Jack of Carver.  Devoted Bapa of Olivia Sontag of Carver.  Loving father of Pamela  Silverio, Paula Vlachos, Craig Silverio all of Mansfield, Alisa Holliday of Florida, Anita Goldman of Maine and Florida and the late Mark Silverio.  Cherished son of the late Ralph Silverio and Anita Rea Silverio D’Amore.  Caring brother of the late John Silverio, Theresa Paulicelli, Joseph Silverio (Fr.

Eugene was a United States Army Veteran who proudly served his country during WWII as a Technical Sergeant in Kobe, Japan.  He graduated from Boston English High School in 1946 and after the war, he attended Burdett College but he fell in love with his career in Air Conditioning/Refrigeration.  Eugene later went on to receive his Bachelor of Arts in Education from Fitchburg State College and his Masters of Education from Boston University.  He was the 1st HVAC instructor in a public vocational school in Massachusetts at Quincy Vocational Technical School and later became the Dean of students.  After retirement, Eugene worked as an advocate for Veterans at the Veterans Assistance Foundation.  He had a love for traveling and especially adored cruises, his trips to Foxwoods and nights at Chatham Bars Inn.  He enjoyed listening to singers and swing music, eating ice cream and spending time with his family.  Eugene’s favorite times were spent with his granddaughter, especially “suppa with Bapa”.  The love and bond between Eugene and his wife was truly indescribable and has been the foundation for his family.  Eugene will be sadly missed by all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
