With great sadness and a heavy heart the family and staff of Maz Mezcal Mexican Restaurant announce the
passing of its founder, Mr.Eduardo T. Silva from cardiac arrest. After completing his duties in the 101st
Airborne, Eduardo, along with his father, started a series of restaurants that culminated in the opening of El
Sombrero in 1972 on East 86th Street. In 1987 El Sombrero closed due to construction and Eduardo and his wife
Maria opened Maz Mezcal at its present location. Eduardo loved working with his staff everyday to serve his
community. He was a devoted husband, adoring father and a beloved “Papa” to his second family consisting of
generations of staff members.
If you would like to consider a donation in Eduardo’s name, his family has selected the following choices to receive your gratitude:
A memorial service is being tentatively planned for June 2021 as he had already started party plans for his fiftieth wedding anniversary.
Eduardo Thomas Silva Coronel
March 7, 1950 - July 20, 2020
