for Kirk Spindelman info here:
This is a sad message to inform you that long
time club member Kirk Spindleman died Sunday night, June 5, after a long
fight with cancer. We all knew Kirk as a great guy who always had a smile,
a positive attitude, a willingness to help and be involved in the club and
the enjoyment of being out on a ride.
In E-mail messages from his wife Glenna, she stated “I am very sad and
heartbroken for us all. I am elated his pain is gone. The healing service
at our church just fourteen hours earlier was honored. Cancer wanted to
cause many more days of pain and confusion. God said ‘No’”. “’He is mine
and I am taking him home with Me’. Alleluia. Amen”
The Celebration of Life for Kirk will be held at 11am on Monday, June 13
at Grace Presbyterian Church 1450 E. Vista Way Vista, CA 92084.
