Richard H. Spurzem Obituary
July 23, 1926 - July 12, 2017 Richard and his identical twin brother Robert were born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on July 23, 1926. Parents were Raymond J. Spurzem M.D. and Mary Hensler Spurzem. The family lived in Anoka, Minnesota, where the boys attended school and then went to the University of Minnesota in 1944. They were members of Chi Psi Fraternity. Dick graduated with a BA degree in 1948 and very soon thereafter joined the brokerage firm Piper Jaffrey & Hopwood, Minneapolis. Dick was a very successful broker/investment banker. He retired in 1975 and moved to Newport Beach, Ca., to be close once again to his siblings, Robert Spurzem M.D., and Susan Spurzem Cuse in Southern California. Dick had many interests including big game hunting, high grade watches, Browning guns and, of course, the stock market. In 2013 he was diagnosed with head and neck cancer and underwent several courses of chemo and radiation without success. He is survived by his brother, Robert Spurzem M.D., sister Susan Cuse, two children, Anne Spurzem and Richard Spurzem, two grandchildren, and his six nephews who will miss him terribly. He was predeceased by his daughter Catherine. A celebration of his life and memory will be held September 2, 2017, 1:00 p.m. at Newport Beach Yacht Club.
