Obituary

Obituary for Arthur Duane Spradlin

Arthur Duane Spradlin, age 66 of Ypsilanti, Michigan, passed away unexpectedly at his residence on Friday, July 3, 2020.

Arthur was born on April 13, 1954 in Kansas City, Kansas, the first child of Arthur Robin and Dorothy Ann (Wier) Spradlin. At the age of 12, Arthur’s father passed away and the Spradlin family, which now included siblings, Barton, Debra, and Beverly, moved to Arkansas to be closer to Dorothy’s family. A few years later, Dorothy would remarry Harry Hajek and together the family moved to Montrose, Michigan and they welcomed new sibling, Tammy into their lives. In Montrose, Arthur graduated from high school and immediately enlisted in the United States Airforce where he would work as an aircraft electrical systems repairman and electrical instructor. After seven years Art was honorably discharged from the Airforce and took a position working as an aircraft electrician and eventually manager at Page Avjet in Orlando, Florida. After a few years, Art took to traveling across the US working on various aircrafts for commercial and private carriers. Art was drawn to aircrafts and enjoyed every minute of fixing and maintaining them- it was a true passion for him.

Art was predeceased by his parents, Arthur and Dorthy Spradlin; and step-father, Harry Hajek.

He leaves behind his children, Arthur Spradlin, Stephen (Kim) Spradlin, Kevin (Crystal) Spradlin, Tiffany (Mike) Dumblewski, and Chelsey (Tim) Murphy; his grandchildren, Elliott, Delilah, Rosalie, Teddy, Olivia, and Ella; and his siblings who will miss him deeply, Barton Spradlin, Debra (Pete) Estremera, Beverly (Jeff) Birchmeier, and Tammy (Dave) Crammer; as well as his nieces and nephews, Pete, Marcus, Justin, Angela, Danielle, Alexandria.

A visitation will be held for family members on Saturday, July 11, 2020 at Nie Family Funeral Homes, 2400 Carpenter Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan, from 12 pm until 4 pm.
