Dr. Silver Cree Sisneros, age 56, passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022. Dr. Sisneros graduated from Santa Rosa High School in 1984. He went on to earn his doctorate degree from the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific in Ontario, CA. Doctor Sisneros lived in and practiced medicine in NM, CA, AZ, TX, OH and MO.

In 2010 Doctor Sisneros discovered a new treatment for the virus Molluscum Contagiosum which was published in the John Hopkins HIV Guide in 2012. Doctor Sisneros was an avid believer of serving the poor and underserved, and he aimed his professional practice in this manner.

He was an artist and lover of animals. Dr. Sisneros is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Prudencio and Irene Castillo; and paternal grandparents Manuel and Lucy Sisneros. Dr. Sisneros is survived by his son Cole Sisneros; parents Silvano and Seferina Sisneros; and siblings Frank (Twyla) Sisneros; Melissa Sisneros; Ursula (Levi) Myers; and Irene (Carlos) Sisneros-Rueda.
