Michael Spilko, age 72, of Chestnut Ridge, NY, passed away on May 7, 2020. He was born on March 16, 1948 in Brooklyn, NY to the late David and Ethel Spilko.

He was a Managing Vice President of data processing at ADP Brokerage in Jersey City, NJ for the majority of his career and was happily enjoying his retirement for the past 20 years.

Mike enjoyed having breakfast each morning with his son in law Nic. He was always very willing to help people however he could. He enjoyed following the stock market and world events. He loved swimming in his pool and hanging out with his dog Moose. Most recently, Mike was able to witness his daughter go back to college and earn her Bachelor Degree. He had never been more proud. Mike was a man who lived his life the way he wanted to and on his terms. As he lived, he also passed, as he hated hospitals and doctors and went peacefully in his sleep.

He is survived by his daughter, Lisa Spilko Donarski and her husband Nic; his brother, Bernard Spilko and his wife Vicki.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to the Westchester County, NY ASPCA or to your local ASPCA.

The qualities that I will always remember about Mike are his intelligence, his quiet generosity to all, his great caring towards my son Nicolas, and his immense love of and pride in his daughter Lisa. When Lisa was in the room, Mike’s happiness was complete! Mike will be greatly missed.
