• Started out as a young Yugoslavian immigrant, Spiro Pavlovich made Plaquemines Parish his home, and the parish is better for it.

True friend of Plaquemines, Spiro Pavlovich, dies at 80

By Terri Sercovich
Longtime Plaquemines resident and businessman Spiro Pavlovich passed away last Monday at the age of 80. The Yugoslav immigrant who thrived in Plaquemines leaves behind a beloved family and a lasting professional and community legacy, including being a founding board member of Mississippi River Bank. “He was one of a kind, that’s for sure,” said daughter Sallee Pavlovich Caplinger. “He was a very proud man. He maintained dignity and respect for everyone.”
