It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of our business partner and co-founder, Paul Spiewak Sr. on December 24th. He was beloved and an integral part of our business success and growth over the years and will be missed. He is survived by his wife Dorothy and four children – Paul Spiewak Jr. Kathleen Boyle, Debbie Beyer & Phillip Spiewak as well as numerous grand-children & great-grand children.
Paul partnered with Frank Parks Sr. in 1947 to start Century Tile & Supply Company. Over the years, both grew the business from a little store on Austin Avenue in Chicago to twelve locations covering the Chicago-land area and becoming one of the largest floor covering retailers & distributors in the Mid-West.
Paul’s guidance and enthusiasm will be sorely missed and we are all thankful for opportunity that we had to work and learn from him.
