Edward Tracy Siver
Edward Tracy Siver, 86, passed away Tuesday, December 15, 2020 at Christus Hospitals of Southeast Texas – St. Elizabeth, Beaumont, after a brief illness.
A native of Houston, he was born October 13, 1934 to Lenora and Edward B. Siver. “Ed” or “Sonny” as he was called, was a resident of Beaumont for over 60 years. He was a United States Navy Veteran serving aboard the USS Shangri-la, when in 1954 he marries his sweetheart, Peggy Carroll. They built a life together, where he worked several Medical Supply and Distribution companies in the Beaumont area until his retirement.
Ed was a kind, pleasant man. He deeply loved his Lord Jesus Christ and his family. He was a great influence on many lives through the years, but none more so than on the lives of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who thought the sun and moon rose in his eyes. He was a long-time member of Pine Burr Baptist Church and current member of North End Baptist Church. He was a deacon and Sunday School teacher for many, many years. In his retirement years he spent many hours of volunteer work at the hospital.
He is preceded in death by his wife of fifty-five years, Peggy Siver and four siblings.
Survivors include his daughter, Karen Siver Forcier and her husband, Bob; son, Rayford Siver and his wife, Laura; eight grandchildren, Whitney Witzleben, Kayla Blanchette, Sunni Forcier, Chad Siver, Jourdan Siver, Pilar Siver, Jessica Siver, and Raschelle Siver; ten great-grandchildren, with another, his namesake, to arrive in a few weeks; sister, Audrey Williamson, of Houston; and many nieces and nephews.
A private family graveside service for Mr. Siver will be held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Beaumont under the direction of Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

I hate i am reading this Ed sold me my first house next door to him and Peggy oh what wonderful neighbors they were. We also worked together at Taylor Medical. The sweetest couple and what great role models for any young couple or old. They loved each other so much and would do anything for anyone. i know you are so happy to be back with Peggy! My prayers are with the family! RIP ED
Iâ€™m so happy and sad at the same time. When Don and I were dating he always shared childhood memories of his family. I was so proud to have met all of you and later becoming my in laws. I may not have been with you physically due to health problems but you all have always been in my heart. I love all of you. What a happy. reunion in Heaven today!!
When you have fond memories of someone you met almost 40 years ago, what a testimony to their personality and character! Ed hired me at Taylor Medical and I remember him turning over a garbage can to sit on to interview me! I worked there several years and he was the one person I could go to that was fair and cared about you as a person. Always had a dry wit which I loved. We always knew where he had been or if he was coming by his cologne! Much respect and admiration for this fine man. I have thought about him often over the years.

I had the great fortune of working with â€˜Edwardâ€™, as I fondly called him, for many years. He was loved and respected by all that knew him! My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. What a precious soul! Honored and blessed to have known and loved him!

So sad to hear this! Just days after meeting one another at Taylor Medical in 1987, I dubbed him the â€œSilver Foxâ€ and he in turn named me â€œPatienceâ€, because as he said, I had none! I admired him, trusted him and loved him. Even today, every time I think of him, I smile! He always had a hug and a smile for me. I became a better person having worked with him, may he Rest In Peace and may God bless the ones he left behind.
Karen and family, Words can't express the sadness I feel in the loss of one of the finest Christian men I have ever met. He was a joy and always fun to be around. I will have the sweet memories shared with him all the years at Pine Burr Baptist church. My children loved and respected him for years. and we will always remember his sweet smile he always had for everyone. He will have stars in his crown in glory and heaven will rejoice . You are in my heart and in my prayers with all my love. (Louis didn't know him as I did but he thought he was a exceptional gentleman and was glad he got to know him for the time he did. He also sends his love and prayers. With deep and sincere Sympathy and all my love, Aline and Louis Broussard Burkeville, Tx
I met Mr. Ed while working at Taylor Medical. I was so intimidated by him at first but he joked and made me feel comfortable. His suit and title just as down to earth as my shorts and t shirt since I worked in the warehouse. He could never pronounce my last name so he would page me over the intercom â€œStephanie Legaroonieâ€ or Stephanie lingerie â€œ I would come back with â€œEdward T Silverâ€. We would laugh. He was an amazing person with an amazing love for his wife and Jesus. He is now celebrating his reunion. Thoughts and prayers to family, friends, and those in mourning.
I had the pleasure to work with Ed for several years in the medical supply business. I was always impressed with what a fine and fair gentleman he was. I recall one trip we took together to do a medical company acquisition in Barton Rouge; we visited mostly about our families. He was so fond of his wife and spoke lovingly of his children and grandchildren. My condolences. I was blessed to have know Ed. May God bless his family.
I volunteered a number of years with Ed at St. Elizabeth Hospital. He always was a sweet and caring man who was grateful to give back to his community. We will always miss and remember him.
