Romaine Spira

September 27, 1926 — October 28, 2017

Romaine G. "Romy" Spira passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 28, 2017 surrounded by his family at the age of 91.
Romy was born in Sheboygan on September 27, 1926 to George and Emma (nee Sprenger) Spira. After graduating from Sheboygan Central High School, he enlisted in the United States Navy, where he served on a ship that was sent out to sea in the Philippines. When he returned, he graduated from the pharmacy program at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He went on to work at Smidler Drug Store for most of his professional career.
On June 14, 1949, he was united in marriage with Shirley M. Fischer, his wife of 56 years.
Romaine was a member of Riverview Club, and was very active in fishing, hunting, bowling, throwing darts at the River Rats Club, stamp collecting, gardening and enjoyed spending time with his family. We know he is with God now, but will be missed forever for his winning smile and gentle heart.
He was preceded in death by his wife Shirley, daughter Corrine (Keith) Larson, son Richard Spira, an infant daughter, and his brother Glen Spira.
Romy is survived by his daughters Barbara (Bruce) Pierotti and Teresa (Ronald) Anderson and his son Randal Spira. He is further survived by six grandchildren: Marcia (Mike) Fischer, Dennis Fischer, Shannon Larson, Peter (Lena) Pierotti, Jeff Pierotti (Ashley) and Kurt (Nikki) Pierotti; five great-granchildren: Anya, Madison, Gavin, Nathan and Elizabeth, brother-in-law Kenneth (Camille) Fischer, other relatives and friends.

The oak tree strong and wide
The garden close beside
The house wherein I lived and died
I'm now with your mother, so for me don't long
Just help each other
And together stay strong.
