More Info
We wish to share with our Silver Knights Basketball community that Joe Spineto, Director of Rep and Elite Development has sadly and very recently passed away at 77 years of age. Joe was a founding member of York South Silver Knights Basketball. He had an enormous impact upon the quality character of our community basketball club, and impacted so many youth as a change agent beyond basketball, in their lives. 

Such an esteemed legacy extends beyond our club to Basketball Ontario where he has been referred to as a basketball “icon”.  Joe was also a highly respected basketball official for over 30 years with both the York and Toronto board of officials. 

Joe leaves behind his wife, Teresa, of over 50 years of marriage.  He leaves behind his daughter Angela and son-in-law Mitch, as well as his two grandchildren, Giuseppe and Dante.

Joe will be greatly missed by all of us who have truly known him as a mentor and leader in basketball, but far more importantly as a very giving, caring, wonderful person.
