It has been years since I last saw Mike but have find memories of working with him at PPG and riding to work with him in his Karman Gia. I’m sorry to hear of his passing.

I am so sorry for your loss. There are no words that will make it easier or better. It doesn't get better but you learn how to live with that hole in your heart that he left. I only met Mike a couple of times but I know through Jennifer that he was an amazing dad and husband. She has always been about family as long as I have known her. I went through a lot of the pictures you have on here and it made me smile to see the love and closeness in them. Jen, I love you so much and I wish there was something I could do for you. But all I can do is say I am here always and forever

Worked with Mike for many years at ppg. I had the pleasure of having many long talks with Mike over the years. Mike loved to talk sports, especially golf. The only thing I think he enjoyed more than that was talking about his family. He so loved his wife, kids, and grandkids and his face would really light up when talking about them. He was one of the best and will be greatly missed.

We are saddened to hear of Mr. Spillman's passing. Indeed, times like this are difficult for everyone. So in the coming days ahead, may your cherished memories of happy times bring you smiles, and may the wonderful hope found at Isaiah 26:19 bring you comfort and peace. We look forward to that happy time of reunion when God's kingdom comes to remove all pain and suffering and our dear loved ones will never have to part again! Matthew 6:10
