It is with great sadness that the family of Michael J. Sivulich announces his passing on October 19, 2019 at the age of ninety. Michael resided in South Plainfield for the last fifty-eight years and will be lovingly remembered by his children; Michael, Lynne and Charles. He also leaves behind his sisters; Georgine of Sugar Notch, PA and Teddy Slavoski and husband Bill of South Plainfield and several nieces and nephews.
Michael was preceded in death by his wife of sixty-two years, Esther and his parents, Michael and Elizabeth.
Michael was a devoted husband, father and brother as well as a dedicated educator and principal of the South Plainfield Middle School, whom will be missed dearly by all of his peers and students. Prior to teaching, Michael served his country proudly in the United States Army where he was stationed in Korea.
