Obituary for Sunil M. Pilgaonkar

Sunil M. Pilgaonkar, of Washington Township, passed away on January 25, 2011, at Henry Ford Macomb Hospital in Clinton Township, Michigan. He was 58 years old. Sunil was born on July 30, 1952 in Mumbai, India to Lalita (Kamath) and Madhukar Pilgaonkar. He will be remembered for his sense of humor, his big heart, and loving-nature.

Sunil is survived by his wife, Jyoti, his son, Ameya, his sisters, Usha, Surekha, and Rupa, and by his German Shepherd, Ria. He is also survived by his several nieces and nephews, whom he loved dearly.

For those who did not know Sunil, it would have been difficult to distinguish his friends from his family. Sunil treated his friends with the same warmth, compassion, and love as he did with his family. His unique character and larger-than-life personality made him endearing to everyone who knew him.

Most can describe Sunil as a technology enthusiast, a skilled wood-carver, and an avid sports fan. However, all can describe him as �the eternal optimist�. Throughout his 5 year battle with ALS, he maintained a positive attitude about life. This optimism and attitude could be seen as he smiled and laughed with his friends and family even on his most difficult days. In spite of declining health, Sunil remained a source of strength for everyone around him. He will be greatly missed.

A service for Sunil Pilgaonkar will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Road (between 14-15 Mile Rds.) Friday, January 28, from 11:00am-12:00pm.
