A final letter from Earl Silverman

  “I am a male victim of female perpetrated domestic violence.” “For the last 20+ yearsI attempted to find support services & make the gov of Alberta aware of the lack of support services for men.

I first met Earl Silverman in the summer of 1989, shortly after stepping around his Harley which was parked on the walkway leading to the front door of his Richmond Road (Calgary) home. I was looking for a room to stay in while attending school. With the appearance of a biker, Earl opened the door wide, smiled warmly, and invited me in. What I discovered then and was reminded of countless times over the years, is that his door was always open – especially to those in need. I am saddened by his loss, while at the same time, I am lifted with the knowledge that he touched a lot of lives in very positive ways. I will miss him for a very, very long time. Many others will as well. Rest in peace my friend.
