Gil Spahr passed away peacefully at home in Marietta, Georgia with his family by his side. He was 58 years old.
Though born in South Boston, VA, Gil spent his early years in Greensboro, NC and teen years in Travelers Rest, SC before moving to Georgia. He was employed with FritoLay for almost 30 years.
Gil was very proud of his immediate and extended family and made sure they spent time together. He enjoyed taking trips with his wife and children every year to visit those once in a lifetime places. Gil was a big Atlanta Braves fan and enjoyed attending games with his sons, family and friends.
He attended North Metro Church in Marietta, GA. He accepted Christ and was baptized when he was 16 years old. Gil believed God had a purpose for his life and he hoped he had lived the life that was intended for him.
Gil leaves behind his wife of 26 years, Theresa, and two sons, Jonathan and Matthew; sisters Sandra and Pam; and a brother Dan. He is also survived by many aunts and uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces whom he loved very much.
Gil believed in helping children get the medical care they deserved and regularly supported the Children's Miracle Network. Donations may be made in his name.
