Obituary of Manuel G. DaSilva

Manuel “Manny” DaSilva died on Monday, June 26, 2023, in Mt. Kisco, NY, at the age of 97. He passed away peacefully with family by his side, and they will miss him dearly.


Manny was born on August 14, 1925, in New Bedford, MA, to Manuel and Mary DaSilva. He graduated from Mount Vernon High School with a college football scholarship, but was drafted and served in the Navy in the South Pacific during World War II. He returned to marry the love of his life, Jennie Coschignano, and then worked in the construction industry for over 40 years, building a life for his family in New Rochelle, NY.


Manny and Jennie were married for 73 years before her passing last summer and had spent the last 36 years living happily in Somers, NY. He was a true family man, and always had time for those he loved and a kind word for everyone he met.


He is survived by his children, Ronald DaSilva and his wife JoAnn and Lorraine Toscano and her husband Len. He is also survived by his grandchildren, Jacqueline and Kevin Feeney, Daniel and Andriana Toscano, Gregory and Jacqueline DaSilva, Samantha and Gregory Kuhfeldt, and Matthew DaSilva and his fiancé Katherine L’Heureux; four great grandchildren, Claire, Emmeline, and Lucas Feeney and Elle Toscano, and two more on the way; and many nieces and nephews.


Manny was happiest when he was spending time with his best friend and partner, Jennie, or when he was watching sports, whether it be the New York Giants or his grandchildren on the soccer field or at the hockey rink.


No service is scheduled at this time. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (
