Robert Spishak, 84, of Leeds, England passed away suddenly on July 26, 2021. 
Even though a failing heart took him away, his loving heart left a beacon of light for his family and community. Bob was born Feb. 6, 1937 in Cleveland, Ohio.  After graduating from John Adams High School in 1955, he went on to be a Field Auditor for Otis Elevator Company, from which he retired.   He had a passion for creating beautiful glass works and gardening.  He was an honored member of the International Rotary Club of Roundhay and devoted many hours to charitable works. 

Bob is survived by his loving wife of thirty years, Ellen Gael Spishak; his children Robert (Barb) Spishak, Raymond (Darlene) Spishak, Shari (Korby) Spishak-Spielberger, Ronald (Deanna) Spishak and Angela (Alan) Wills; twelve grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.
