Phillip Edward Spiesman Sr. age 87, passed away in his Painesville home Friday, September 23, 2022. Born to Anna Belle and George Spiesman, he married Shirley A. (Dolce) Spiesman on October 1st, 1954.

Phillip retired in 1999 from Unity Rubber in Newbury.  Since he arrived at work at least an hour early, they gave him the keys to the building to start coffee and warm the presses.  Phillip was Men’s Horseshoe Champion for many years, had 500 + trophies, and participated in the World Horseshoe Championship several times during the years when family and work allowed. He loved Cleveland sports, gardening, cards, coin club, time with family and especially his Sunday adventures taking his grandkids for the entire day to Grandma Spiesman’s house, hiking, and other shenanigans.  A fond memory is his weekend in Cleveland for his 2000 appearance on the Cash Explosion show.

Phillip is survived by his children Phil Jr. (Tisha), George, Mark, John (Jeannette), Lisa (Tim Toth); 10 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren; sisters, Ruth and Marjorie Spiesman.  He was preceded in death by siblings Peggy McCormick, Elizabeth Hilston, Mary Warren, Emma, George, David, Alvin, Michael, and Pete Spiesman.

The visitation will be held Thursday Sept. 29 from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Spear Mulqueeny Funeral Home, 667 Mentor Ave. in Painesville Ohio.  Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday Sept. 30 at 10:00 at St. Mary Church, 242 N State Street, Painesville.   Burial will be at Riverside Cemetery immediately following.  Friends and family will be received at Hungarian Culture Club in Fairport Harbor 12-3:00.
