Frank J. Spang IV, 76 of Lexington, SC, formerly of Winchester MA passed away on June 23, 2020. Born August 5, 1943 in Vallejo, CA, Frank was the oldest son of Frank and Barbara (Smith) Spang. He grew up in Winchester with his five brothers Mark, Thomas, Lawrence, Stephen and Charles Spang and three sisters Pamela Nolan, Lisa Spang and Cecily Gray. He graduated from Winchester High School in 1961 and from Boston University in 1965 with a B.A. in English Literature. Frank then continued his education at University of Massachusetts Boston (Ed.M) and Northeastern University (M.A.) While a teaching assistant at Northeastern, Frank met and married the love of his life, Susan Dale, also of Winchester. They moved to Binghamton, NY where Frank pursued a PhD at SUNY Binghamton, and then moved to Elmira, NY where Frank began his career as an educator at Elmira College. Teaching soon brought Frank and his family to New Jersey where he taught at Brookdale Community College and Monmouth College. Frank then found his professional calling, serving for more than 30 years as a civilian employee of the United States Army Chaplain Center and School, first at Fort Monmouth, NJ and later at Fort Jackson, SC.

Frank is survived by his wife Susan and children Benjamin (Arlette) Spang and Kathryn (Matthew Lysakowski) Spang; by his grandchildren Kieran Spang and Cecelia and James Lysakowski; by all his brothers and sisters; by his many nephews and nieces; and by countless friends, colleagues, students and neighbors who will remember Frank for his kindness, sense of humor, and willingness to help others with any problem large or small. Frank was well known as many things: as a devoted husband and father; as a parishioner and usher at the Basilica of Saint Peter in Columbia, SC; as a tie aficionado who never subscribed to business casual; as a brewer of strong coffee, a baker, a chef, and a gardener; and as a lover of all animals and an all-around kind soul.

A memorial mass will be held at St. Mary’s Church, 160 Washington Street, Winchester at 10 a.m. on June 14, 2021. The interment will be at the Wildwood Cemetery, 34 Palmer Street, Winchester immediately following the mass. In lieu of flowers, donations in Frank's name may be made to a charity of your choice.
