Gerald F. Spratt, Jr, 78, passed Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at his home. He was the husband of Donna E. (Fulford) Spratt, his wife of 34 years.
Gerald was born January 30, 1942, in Marlborough, MA, the son of the late Gerald F. and Mary J. (DiBuono) Spratt, Sr.
Gerald was a 1959 graduate of Marlborough High School and served in the U.S Air Force from 1961-1965. He spent a large portion of his life, until retirement, working for the Maryland school system. Jerry never met a stranger he didn’t like and always had a smile and a joke to tell. He enjoyed working in his yard and spending time with family, friends, and grandchildren. You may have known him as the legendary Leprechaun from New Oxford, who dressed from hat to toe in green visiting schools and businesses spreading his St. Patrick’s Day cheer.
In addition to his wife Donna, Gerald is survived by a son, Kenneth Spratt and his wife Debbie of SC, a daughter, Kelsey Spratt of Stafford, VA, a stepson, Scott Sheppard and his companion Sheri of Myersville, MD, two stepdaughters, Kelly Foster and her husband Michael of Amboy, IL, and Stephanie Livelsberger and her husband Matthew of Frederick, MD, eight grandchildren; Tori, Lauren (Garrison Heller),Tyler, Madeline (Zack Razafinjatovo), Brianna, Drew, Allison and Erin, two sisters, Anne Marie Taft and her husband Bob of Shrewsbury, MA and Joan Parker of MA, and several nephews.
