SPREADBURY, Robert James

88, of Clearwater, passed away from congestive heart failure while surrounded by loved ones, January 28, 2018. Robert was born in India and joined the British army at 15 years old, he rose to the rank of Captain. After the army, he became an electrical engineer in England and, in 1968, was hired by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation and immigrated to their R&D Center in Pittsburgh, PA. In 1983, he transferred to the Westinghouse Motor Control Division in Oldsmar, Florida where he worked until his retirement as a Fellow Engineer in 1996. He was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret Jean, in 2017, and their daughter, Susan M. Roper (Colin), in 2013. He is survived by his son, Stephen R. Spreadbury (Linda); grandchildren, Jeni Leonard (Mark), Sarah Roper and Chad J. Spreadbury; great-grandchildren, Eric and Matilda. There will be no viewing. Cremains for both Margaret and Robert will be interred at a later date in England. We would like to thank the staff of Suncoast Hospice and the doctors and the nurses at Mease Hospital in Dunedin, whose wonderful care was invaluable.
