Leave Condolences

To the Silfies family,thought and prayers for your loss. I have known your family so long from living in Lyons, I was friends with all three children. Steve was a kind and gentle person, who will be missed by many.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Det. Silfies, but I did have a conversation with him on the phone. He was called in as a special detective to investigate the triple homicide in Pembroke on November 18. My boyfriend of 13 years, Ed Dansereau, & his neighbors, Pam and Cal Phillips, were brutally murdered. No arrests have been made but he gave me the hope that someday soon the person or persons would be brought to justice. Without his expertise, I am less hopeful that will happen. I offer my condolences to his family and friends. It sounds like he was a great guy.

May God bless Lucas, Sommer and Steve's family during this difficult time.

When I moved from 3rd Bn to 2nd Bn, Steve was the first guy to welcome me. He went out of his way to help me make the transition and set me up for success. He was one of the truest and most selfless leaders I have ever known. As I write this from Afghanistan, I think back to when we invaded this country. I am proud to say I stood beside Steve Silfies when we liberated this country. He is a true credit to the Special Forces Regiment. My heart was very heavy upon receiving word of his passing. I will hold his memory tight until we meet again.

So sorry for your loss!! May God be with His children and family at this difficult time. Steve was always a good man and a great friend to my Dad (Jake Reed) and our Family! Sending all my love and prayers. Stacy
