Harry was an only child and grew up in New York with his parents, Chester and Gladys Spiegel. Harry met his beautiful bride, Catherine, at the age of 14 at a party playing kissing games. After Harry kissed Catherine, she proclaimed him "sticky lips" due to his enjoyment of a lollipop.

Harry worked for and retired from McDonnell Douglas in Huntington Beach, Calif. Harry married Catherine Burke on May 19, 1943 and next month would have been their 70th Anniversary. Catherine passed away on Monday of this week (4-8-13) and Harry followed his wife three days later. Harry is survived by his five children, Carol Kelley, Tom Spiegel, Jim Spiegel, Mary Sharp and Bob Spiegel; as well as 22 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Harry and Catherine resided in Pilgrim Creek, Oceanside, where they both thoroughly enjoyed their retirement years.
