Steven David Fialkow of Scarsdale died Nov. 9. He was 59.
Mr. Fialkow was the president and CEO of National Home Health Care for 30 years. He built a successful management team that still stands strong today. His family said Mr. Fialkow handled obstacles with dignity and ease, and was “humble beyond words and always saw the good in anyone or any situation.”
Mr. Fialkow is survived by his wife, Susan, and his children, Michael, Lauren and Andrew. He loved watching Lauren in the performing arts, Andrew play football, and playing sports and watching TV with Michael — anything that included spending quality time with his children. He had a passion for softball, basketball, music (particularly Bruce Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac), the piano, drums and watching his beloved sports teams, including the New York Yankees, Knicks and Jets.
Mr. Fialkow is also survived by his sisters Ilene (Tom) and Sandra; his second mother Anita; his in-laws, Fran and Rich, Michele and Derek, Chris and Anna, and Karen; nieces; nephews; and extended family. He is predeceased by his parents Frederick and Phyllis and his brother-in-law Vincent. His family said, “he will be forever in our hearts.”
