Mr. Spargo was born June 17, 1936, in Wilmington, DE, where he attended Friends School. He received a degree in engineering from the University of Delaware.

A lifelong sailor and lover of sailing the Chesapeake Bay, he was the commodore of the St. Michaels (MD) Model Boat Club. He also enjoyed sailing model skipjacks, playing backgammon, gourmet adventuring and his hot tub and his dogs. He never met a stranger and was friendly to all.
Surviving are his wife of nearly 45 years, Alison Jones Spargo; 2 daughters, Margaret Lee Spargo and Patricia Spargo Benson, both of Odenton, MD; a sister, Nancy Spargo Goodridge of Wilmington, DE; and 3 grandchildren, who called him "Pop Pop."
