Robert Allen Spiega, Age 75, suddenly passed away on July 21, 2020 at Atrium HealthCare NorthEast. He was born in Chicago, IL to the late Julius Frank Spiega and the late Pearl G. Spiega.
Those left to cherish his memories; his sons, David Michael Spiega and Steven Robert Spiega; his daughter, Angelene Michelle Bentley; grandchildren, Ryan Pope, Timothy Pope, Gianna Spiega and Olivia Spiega; brother, Jay Spiega and sister, Joan Spiega Hanna; and his wife of 40 years, Ruth Ann Spiega.
Robert proudly served our nation in the United States Army National Reserve, then went to work for many years as a typesetter for the Chicago Sun Times newspaper, Arcus Ticket and financial printer, Pandick. After leaving the Chicago area, he drove a truck for Seko Logistics in Charlotte, North Carolina. Robert was a lover of music and played the Accordovox in his own band. He enjoyed reading, cooking, building jigsaw puzzles and he was an HO scale model train enthusiast. Robert could fix anything that needed repair, including people as he was a sponsor in AA advocating for those who needed help. He enjoyed long talks and sharing memories of friends and family members. Robert had a smile and laugh that were contagious, and he will be deeply missed by many. He was proud of his Polish heritage and his favorite Polish blessing goes out to all: “May the land be fertile beneath your feet. May your days be gentle as the sun-kissed dew. May your hand be outstretched to all you meet. And may all men say “Brother” when they speak of you. NAZDROWIE.”
A graveside service with full military honors at Cabarrus Memorial Gardens will be announced at a later date.
Cabarrus Funeral, Cremation & Cemetery is serving the Spiega family.
