Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

    I'm dismayed to report that we have another sad Memorial Edition of the NNHS Newsletter this Sunday.   Fred AnspachMost Athletic Boy in the Class of 1964, Co-Captain of the Football Team, and Co-Captain of the Outdoor Track Team, passed away at home in Newport News on September 04, 2019.

   He was the brother of  Linda Anspach Hartley and of the late Larry Anspach ('55) (d. 15 Apr 1994). His mother, Eva Burgess Anspach ('35) (23 Sept 1916 - 16 Mar 2004) , and his daughter, Laura Anspach Dwyer-Mutch (13 Sept 1971 - 20 May 2005), also preceded him in death.


    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 09/04/19, 9:21 AM:

It is with great sadness that I have learned of the death of Fred Anspach, NNHS 1964, at his home this morning, Wednesday, September 04, 2019.

   Oh, David, I am so sorry to learn this. Thank you so much for letting everyone know.

NEWPORT NEWS - 1944-2019. Died on Sept 4. Cause of death was corticobasal degeneration--lucky me! I had an awesome life. More ups than downs. Born and raised in Newport News. Parents were Dick & Eva Anspach. Two siblings, older brother Larry and sweet sister Linda Hartley. Married sue miller in 1965. We had two daughters, Stephanie Lynne (1969) and Laura Sue (1971). Laura died of oral cancer in 2005. Stephanie lives in the UK and has four children: Ashton, Cole, Gardiner, and Hayden with husband Tim Hunt. I graduated from Newport News High and William & Mary. I taught school for 3 years and then became a longshoreman and retired after 37 years in 2002. The man who was most responsible for me becoming the personIi became is my high school football/track coach Charlie Nuttycombe. He was the first adult to support me and believe in me. He never said a negative word to me. I loved him.

I met Marilyn Murphy in 2000 and we married in 2001. I was a super lucky man to marry two wonderful ladies. Marilyn was my wife and caretaker. Marilyn made my life as comfortable and as pleasant as possible. She never complained about anything she did for me and she had to do EVERYTHING. I was like a paraplegic. She is responsible for me living as long as I did.

Now I am dead...I think the lights have been turned off and the party is over...I doubt there is any after life. No funeral or "celebration" of life party for me. celebrate your own life every day. I would like my friends and family to celebrate my life, if anything, death by doing a good deed or by complimenting someone...as someone said--"here a little while, gone a long time!!!" Enjoy your life! bye bye, Fred.

Fred was the best all-around high school athlete I ever saw. Even as a freshman at NNHS he excelled and just got better. He led our track team to the state championship in 1963. I will always have great memories of him and those days.

What a super obit, Marilyn. It sounds like Fred and his sense of humor. We are so sorry for your loss. Fred was a memorable friend, and we always enjoyed seeing the two of you when you came to the river in Galax.

Hi Fred----I didn't know you but wish I had. your obit lit up my life today. I have often thought how I would write up mine, and you have given me a road map. It is so refreshing to read such a beautifully written account of your life. I have no doubt you are flying around the stars now admiring the beauty of the universe.
