In loving memory of Albert D'Silva, who sadly passed away on 31st May 2021.

The much loved husband of Vera, Father of Maria, Jude and Clare and Grandfather of Sofia, Valentina, Grace, Samson, Luca and Theo.

Albert had the kindest most generous heart, always thinking of everyone else before himself. His zest for life, and his unfaltering sense of humour will be remembered by all who knew him.

With the Covid restrictions we had to keep the numbers of attendance at the funeral and reception to a minimum, so we unfortunately couldn't invite everyone to celebrate Albert's life in person - but as a number of people could not attend please see the below link to watch the funeral mass:

We know that many of you would want to pay your respects to our beloved Albert, so we'd love for you to share your condolences and any memories/photos below and keep his vivacious spirit alive.

I first met Albert in the early 80’s, when we were both working for Lloyds’ Bank, and we became friends. We worked on a number of projects together, and Albert was always fun to be with – at times it was like having my own personal Spike Milligan sitting next to me.

We got together just a few times as families during these times, so I got to meet Vera and the kids – a lovely family. An invite from Albert was always accompanied with a “bring your own food”, “bring your own tea-bags” or “it’s £5 for parking”.

Over the years, we managed to keep in touch via e-mail and phone calls. Albert’s sense of humour never seemed to fail – I will miss the phone calls from “the Inland Revenue” advising me that I owe some huge sum of money in unpaid income tax, the calls from “the Irish Embassy” for Paddy McGinty enquiring after the wellbeing of my goat, and his ideas for new inventions such as water-proof tea-bags.

Albert was one of the good guys, and my life has been better for having him as a friend.
