Robert passed away on Jan. 21, 2022, at his home in Dunnellon, Fla. He was born on Oct. 12, 1954, to Katherine M. (Saracina) Spindler and Joseph C. Spindler Sr. of Livingston, N.J., and grew up on Eastern Long Island, New York. After honorably serving in the U.S. Marine Corps in Vietnam, he moved to Surry to raise his two daughters. He lived a private life and enjoyed riding his motorcycles and boating on the waters of Downeast Maine. He gave everything to those closest to him; his all too frequent anecdotes will be dearly missed.
Robert is survived by his wife of 13 years, Lillian Spindler; his daughter, Charlene, of Blue Hill, along with her husband, Chris Gray, and their daughter, Lucy; his daughter, Susan, of Portland, Maine, and her husband, Jared Sawyer; and his brother, Michael Spindler of Calverton, N.Y. Robert was predeceased by his parents, his sister, Maryjean Spindler of Washington, N.J., and his older brother, Peter Spindler of Surry. Robert also had an older half-brother, Joseph Spindler, last known to live in Texas. A service will be held in August 2022 at his final resting place, the Acadia National Cemetery in Jonesboro
