Da Silva was most recently in the news in 2017 when he was convicted of third-degree robbery. The case was particularly notable due to the support Da Silva received from famed Gambino crime boss John Gotti Jr.  

Details as to the circumstances of his passing have been withheld due to privacy concerns.
