Chapter Eternal: Spencer Fuchs (Lehigh U)

BABYLON, NY, DEC 1 2023 — Fra Spencer "Spence" Fuchs, of West Islip, New York passed away on Saturday, November 18, 2023, aged 89. Spencer was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1934. He is the loving husband of Kathleen. Devoted father of Eddie Fields and his wife, Carol and Dani Fields-Damato and her husband, Thomas Damato. Cherished grandfather of Kevin Fields, Jillian Fields and Taylor Calon. Spencer was predeceased by his brother, Kenneth.

A wake and memorial service was held Monday, November 27, 2023 at Claude R. Boyd-Spencer Funeral Home in Babylon. His framed 1954 Lehigh composite was on display, along with the plethora of family photos mostly of him boating and fishing. Nicknamed “Fishy” by his fraternity brothers, Spencer was a modern day Ernest Hemingway, with the wit of Groucho Marx.

A life long entrepreneur, Fra Fuchs made his bones in the family business of sugar brokerage. He came out of retirement to monetize his love of boating, and become a fulltime yacht broker. He worked 6 days a week, right up to the end of his long, big full life.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Fuchs family.
