Philip "Phil" Wesley Spruell, age 64, passed away on Wednesday, January 16, 2018 in Metairie, Louisiana.
Phil is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Kristin Eppling Spruell; his son, Tommy Spruell; his mother, Linda Spruell Sheffield; sister, Karen Spruell; brother, David Spruell; stepsister, Susan Matthews; brother-in-law, Tommy Eppling, five nephews and seven nieces.
Phil is preceded in death by his son, Patrick Spruell; his father, Walter Spruell; and sister-in-law, Kathy Eppling.
Phil was born and raised in Alexandria, Louisiana. He graduated from Bolton High School before attending Louisiana Tech University. Phil was an avid fan of the New Orleans Saints and the LSU Tigers, although his support of his own sons' sports endeavors may have rivaled this passion. He enjoyed a long career in the oil industry where he made many lifelong friends. There's no doubt he will be missed, and this world will not be the same without Phil Spruell.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend the Funeral Mass held at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home in New Orleans, Louisiana on Friday, January 19, 2018 at 2:00 pm. Visitation will begin at the funeral home at 12:00 noon until the service begins.
