On Tuesday, November 3, 2020 Donald Francis Spindler, Senior, age 84, died peacefully at his Ellicott City, Maryland home. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Glenna (née Cassell), daughters Connie Spindler, Kathy Zamzow (Randy), Teri Trieschman (Billy), son Donnie (Liz), eleven grandchildren, three great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews and his beloved dog Annabelle. He was preceded in death by his parents John and Mary Spindler, his brothers John Jr., Charles and Edward and his sister Joan Overholtz.

Don served two years in the United States Army, Third Division, Eighth Engineers and was stationed in Germany where he was responsible for operating heavy equipment used to build roads. He was honorably discharged with the rank of E4 in 1960.

While in Europe, he and Glenna traveled to several cities in Germany, to Austria and to Rome, Italy.

Upon his return to civilian life, Don spent many years as a professional truck driver. In 1978 he started Don’s Paving & Hauling which he and Glenna operated for more than 30 years. After ceasing the paving operations, they continued to provide equipment repair and truck mechanic services. They also purchased used construction equipment at auction which was then repaired, refurbished and resold.

A private service will be held November 9, 2020 followed by interment at Crest Lawn Memorial Gardens in Marriottsvillle. Facial covering must be worn when inside the funeral home.
