He played golf at Pine Ridge Golf Course in Timonium and coached several Towson men’s softball teams. He was also a fan of convertibles, which he enjoyed driving.
Mr. Spangler particularly enjoyed Christmas and each year searched for the tallest tree — which he encircled with his model trains.
“It took him several days to decorate the tree and mantel,” Ms. Dwyer said.
A celebration of Mr. Spangler’s life will be held at noon Monday at the Lemmon Funeral Home, 10 W. Padonia Road, Timonium.
In addition to his daughter, Mr. Spangler is survived by his wife of 36 years, the former Patricia P. Smith; a son, Paul Bradley Spangler of Freeland; another daughter, Sharon Spangler of Reno, Nev.; two stepdaughters, Kim Barton of Riderwood and Dee Navolio of Richmond, Va.; a brother, Michael J. Spangler of Towson; seven grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.
