Jeff Spaugy Obituary

 Jeffery Lee Spaugy passed away on October 24, 2023 at the age of 63. 

Jeff or “Spog” a nickname he loved, was born in Sidney, Ohio on April 25, 1960.  His parents were Richard and Marylee (Ehemann) Spaugy who preceded him in death. 

Jeff was a proud graduate of the Vandalia-Butler High School Class of 1978 and enjoyed attending his class reunions.  His career fields were varied, as he worked in the aviation field as an aircraft refueler for Aviation Sales, Inc. and Emery Air Freight, an air freight coordinator for various freight forwarding companies and as a lawn care telemarketer.  By far his favorite workplace was Emery Air Freight, where he was among the first people to be hired.

Jeff’s life was one of immense personal challenges and in later years, health struggles.  However, through them all, he maintained his love of family, The Ohio State Buckeyes, Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati Reds, and most of all he loved music.  From a very early age, he had a profound love for the music of the Beatles, and in later years Jimmy Buffet.  His passion and knowledge of the different genres of rock and roll was endless.

With his earthly journey completed, it’s not hard to imagine him enjoying his beloved Buckeyes with our Dad or strolling down some heavenly music row listening to the music he so dearly loved. 

Jeff is survived by his children, Carra, Cody and Casey (Shannon), along with four grandchildren; sisters, Teri Wintrow (Jeff), Cathi Spaugy, and brother, Phil Spaugy (Amy), along with many nieces, nephews, and grand nieces and nephews. 

If you wish to remember or memorialize Jeff’s life, spend some time doing things he loved.  Watching a sporting event with friends and family or listening to some good rock and roll, particularly “Breakfast with the Beatles” on Sunday morning and to Jimmy Buffet anytime.

Our family would like to give thanks to the first responders of the Vandalia Police and Fire Departments for their compassionate care for Jeff over the last several years.  Also, we thank the staff of KHN-Grandview and the Kindred Hospital for their tremendous professionalism and care for both Jeff and our family during this final days.
