Nicholas Spinelli, 43, of Wilmington, Delaware, passed away peacefully with family by his side on June 22, 2013 following complications from a ruptured cerebral aneurysm. Nick was born in Madrid, Spain, grew up in Wilmington, and was a graduate of Wilmington University. A devoted husband and father, he cherished his 22-year marriage to wife, Kelly and their beautiful daughter, Victoria.

Nick was a kind and gentle soul. He enjoyed spending time with family, beaching at Cape Henlopen State Park, hiking, fast cars, reading and history. A skilled mechanic, Nick worked for 17 years at General Motors and recently for the Delaware State Police.

In addition to his wife and daughter, Nick is survived by his parents, Dr. Robert and Rita Spinelli, and siblings Lou, Cindy, and Alex.

Services will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions for Victoria's continued education which may be mailed to the Nicholas Spinelli Memorial Fund at WSFS, 4730 Limestone Road, Wilmington, DE 19808.
