William Patrick "Bub" Sprowl

William Patrick "Bub" Sprowl, 74, of Phillipsburg, NJ, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at St. Luke's, Anderson.

Bub was born December 15, 1947 in Lynn, Massachusetts. He graduated from Phillipsburg High School, Class of 1966. He served in the U.S. Navy.

Bub enjoyed traveling far and wide with his devoted wife Kay in their motor home "Yota." He also enjoyed camping and bike riding with his family, with whom he cherished spending as much time as possible. Bub loved his cars and trucks especially his 1959 Dodge Power Wagon. On an endless quest for knowledge, he was an avid reader with a passion for history. Bub enjoyed learning to fly a plane and he particularly enjoyed the flights along the Hudson. He loved to torture his family with corny jokes, which will be sorely missed. Most of all, Bub loved his wife, daughters and grandchildren. He retired from a long career as a truck mechanic. He was a member of the Harmony Township Lions Club and a past member of the Lehigh Valley Flying Club.

In addition to his loving wife of 54 years, Kay, Bub is survived by daughters: Christine Slack of Phillipsburg, NJ, Stephanie Sprowl-Trimmer (Shawn) of Hellertown, PA; grandchildren: Gage Trimmer of Wekiwa Springs, FL, Emily Slack of Phillipsburg, NJ and Ethan Trimmer of Hellertown, PA; siblings: Robert "Butch" Sprowl of Tennessee, Eugene Sprowl of California, Patricia Johnson of Washington and Bill Sprowl of Oregon. He was predeceased by his brother Richard Sprowl. 

In keeping with Bub's wishes, there will be no formal service. In memoriam of Bub, please donate blood to your local blood supply center, as Bub was a frequent donor.
