New Braunfels, Texas | Age 73
Robert Spanley, born November 23, 1943, passed away peacefully with his family February 9, 2017. He was born in Orange, Texas to Gerald and Gracie Spanley.
Robert had many passions in life. He was a true family man who supported both his children and grandchildren. He never missed an event or game, and if out of town, he would drive at breakneck speed to get back in time. He was always there cheering us on. He had a deep-seated love for animals and always had dogs in his life from the time he was a child. All of his pets were a part of his family. He was also an outdoorsman and loved nature. He passed his love of boating, fishing and camping on to his children and grandchildren.
Robert was preceded in death by his wife of 49 years, Ginger; his son, Brian; grandsons, Zachary and Hunter Crossland; his parents; and brother, Billy.
He is survived by his daughter, Carol (Barry) Crossland; son, Kevin (Jaime) Spanley; grandchildren, Tyler and Kimberly Crossland and Parker and Makenna Spanley; as well as his siblings, Ron, Gerry and Richard Spanley, and Patti Nelson and their families.
The family will receive friends from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, February 15, 2017, at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
