Michael Spader, 73, of Jamesville, passed away on March 21, 2020, at The Centers for St. Camillus after battling cancer for 20 years. He was the husband of Margaret Spader. They shared 34 years of marriage together.

Born on January 7, 1947 and raised in Penn Yann, he was the son of Alvin and Eunice Spader. He gradated the Penn Yan Academy and earned a degree in finance from Syracuse University. He started his career working for the Small Business Administration before taking a position with Key Bank. He continued in banking and loan management for the duration of his career.

Besides his interest in money matters, he spent his free time swimming, boating, camping and traveling with his family. He used to say, “traveling makes you more interesting to yourself.” The family routinely gathered at the beaches in Hilton Head, SC, Outer Banks, NC, and Mexico creating many special memories. Mike remained active with many home improvement and woodworking projects including cabinets and tables. In 2003, he made three cherry bassinets to welcome three grandchildren born that year. Mike enjoyed being around people and had a great sense of humor.

His life will forever be cherished in the lives of his family. He is survived by his wife Margaret, daughter Emily and granddaughter Amanda; son Steven and grandchildren Gabe and Nicholas; stepson Ed and his wife Nicole; stepdaughter Donna and her husband Marko with grandchildren Michael, Ella and Adam; stepdaughter Jennifer and her husband Joshua with grandchildren Andrew and Elizabeth; and his brother David and sister Judith.

Due to the current circumstances, there will be no memorial service at this time. Those wishing to make gestures of condolence, please send donations to The Centers at St. Camillus in Syracuse.

Peggy: I was sorry to see your husband's obituary in the Post-Standard several days ago. I want you to know I think of you now and then, even though we haven't seen each other in several years. Our growing-up years spent together were wonderful ones, walking halfway up or down Rickard Road to meet each other in the middle of the approximate half mile of walking there was before we got together, and then playing with dolls, in the sandbox, on the swing, or with some other childhood pastime, up until 5th grade, when you moved to Marcellus and i was devastated to lose my best friend. I have such fond memories of you, and I'm sorry now that, though we haven't seen each other in many years, the reason I got in touch with you was because of your husband's death. I'm sure it will be a difficult time for you to get through; but perhaps in a few months, there will be a time when you might say to yourself, "I think I'll have lunch or tea with my childhood friend, and will send a note to me at Manor Heights, Skaneateles, 13152. I hope you are blessed by having a loving family you can count on and be comforted by in these difficult days ahead. I send my condolences and best wishes for you and hope you get in touch at the appropriate time, for you. With love, Barby Spain

I worked with Mike in the early ‘80’s at SBA. We always had a lot of laughs and fun. I’ve thought of him fondly over the years. So sorry to hear of his passing.

My wife Liz and I worked with Mike at Key Bank. He was great at his job, a good guy to talk to and had a great sense of humor. Our condolences to his family and friends.

All the leaders of Boy Scout Troop 1 in Syracuse are sorry to learn of Mike's passing and send their condolences to his family. Mike was a Troop 1 parent in the 1990s and assisted the Troop in many ways. When I worked downtown, I used to run into Mike on the street and he was always cheerful and appreciative of the Troop's efforts for Steve and Ed. Thank you, Chris DeVoe
