In Memory of DavidMinton Silva, August 16, 1943 - March 11, 2018
by Alex Darocy
Memorials were held in Santa Cruz during the month of May for DavidMinton Silva, who passed away on March 11 in Mozambique, Africa. For decades, David was a strong presence in local politics and the activist community in Santa Cruz, touching many with his gentle soul, and the ability to express solidarity and support for many different causes and individuals in the field of civil rights and social justice. The issue most near his heart was homelessness.
