February 3, 2018

Joseph H. Spirk, 75 years of age and longtime resident of Claymont DE, died

unexpectedly on February 3, 2018 near his home in Claymont DE.


Joseph was born in Philadelphia on December 15, 1942 to Herman Spirk and Madeline Sattler. He was a veteran who served in the military, both in the Army and the Air Force.

missed by all those who knew him.
