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


Born in Scranton, son of the late Joseph and Mildred Benowitz Spitz, he was a 1955 graduate of Scranton Central High School and the University of Miami in Florida. Prior to retirement, Robert had been employed by the Department of Labor within the United States Government and was also the owner of several local Arby’s restaurants.    He was a passionate lover of dogs who dearly missed his departed pet, Pepper. 


Kind acknowledgement is made to Robert’s caretaker of over ten years, Helen Jezorowski, who took such thoughtful care of Bob, as well as Bob’s cousin Dr. Martin Spitz who was always available for guidance and consult.  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.


Graveside services will be held on Monday at noon in the Dickson City Jewish Cemetery by Rabbi Moshe Saks. 


Memorial contributions may be made to the donor’s favorite charity.

I've had a close association with Bob for the past 45 years, and had a great relationship. I am currently in Florida, and unfortunately could not be there to attend the funeral. My wife Judy and I send our sincere condolences.

I have known Bobbie for 70 of his 75 years. He was a colorful member of our Crystal Lake gang as he participated in our baseball, basketball g ames, dancing in the pavilion and general mayhem. After college he gradually became absorbed in his career as we all did and we saw less of him. He always was friendly and a great lovable eccentric.
