Robert H. Spitz, 75, of Dickson City, died early Thursday morning in the Commonwealth Hospice of Northeast PA at Regional Hospital of Scranton.

Also, a special thank you is extended to Diana Holdridge, Frank McGrath, K.T. Pal, and Atty. Jack Nogi for their loyal friendship to Robert.
Surviving are several cousins.
