Welcome to the OCOA
Ontario Conservation Officers Association is a non-profit
Association of active and retired Ontario Conservation Officers and
other natural resources law enforcement officers.
We mourn the sudden passing of Conservation Officer Kirk Silver on April 2, 2013.
Kirk served the MNR with pride as a dedicated and caring conservation officer. He was a member of the OCOA executive and an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan. Kirk had a true passion for the outdoors. He was a skilled fisherman and excellent hunter. The true light of his life was his family, especially his wife and sons who gave his life its meaning. He will be missed and fondly remembered by all whose lives he touched.
In Memory of Kirk Anthony Silver
A Trust Fund for Kirk's sons has been set up by the Sudbury CO's
and the contribution deadline is extended to May 30. Donations can be made to the Trust Fund (or the Kids & Wardens Aventure) through the "In Memory" site above, or as noted below.
