In Memoriam: Richard Spittel

It is with sadness ATPAM announces the death on July 7, of Retired Gold Card Press Agent Richard ‘Dick’ Spittel in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where he had retired. Brother Spittel was 83 years old and had been a member of ATPAM since 1973.

Among the productions Dick represented on Broadway were: Zizi (1964), The Family Way (1965), Boeing-Boeing (1965), Half a Sixpence (1965) and Pousse-Cafe’ (1966).  After fifteen years working on Broadway in the offices of Goodman/Washer, Bill Doll and John Springer Associates, Dick relocated to Los Angeles to open the west cost office for Springer Associates.  He subsequently opened his own firm – Spittel & Kephart – and went on to represent both motion pictures and legit stage productions at the Shubert Theatre and the Huntington Hartford Theatre (now the Ricardo Montalban Theatre) in Los Angeles.

Brother Spittel is survived by his neice, Jamie Saganey and nephew Charles Spittel.

He will be missed.
