Obituary for John Springstead
Surrounded by family, John Warren Springstead, 55, passed on Wednesday, November 2, 2017. From the moment of his birth in December 1961, he lit up the lives of everyone around him. A graduate of Stetson University and Fordham University, and known for his insatiable zest for life and adventure, John traveled the world and called Paris, France his home for more than 30 years. John is survived by his parents John and Sara Spencer Springstead of Ocklawaha, Fl., sister Carol Krietemeyer, brothers David and Michael Springstead and a number of nieces and nephews. A family service and interment will be held at the Ocklawaha Community Cemetery at 11 AM on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 with a private reception to follow. Mr. and Mrs. Springstead would like to thank The Villages Regional Hospital staff for taking such loving care of John and our family during his last days. As an expression of sympathy, memorial contributions may be sent to the Cancer Research Institute.
