Dr. Gene Dale Sprechini, 70, of Williamsport, was received by his Lord on Friday May 5, 2023 with his loving wife by his side at UPMC Williamsport. He was the loving husband of Stacie (Greene) Sprechini, whom he would have celebrated 10 wonderful years of marriage with, on May 18th.
Born May 6, 1952, in Camden, NJ, he was a son of the late Geno and Carmella (Tavani) Sprechini. He graduated from Wyoming West High School in June of 1970. He worked his way through high school and undergraduate college, doing curbside service at Kearney’s Restaurant. He graduated from Wilkes College in May of 1974 with a B.S. in Mathematics. Gene continued his education at State University of New York Binghamton, where he graduated in January of 1981 with a Doctorate in Statistics.
His first post graduate job was a temporary visiting position at the University of Kentucky in August of 1980 while finishing his dissertation until May 1981. He moved on to a Tenured position in August of 1981 in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Lycoming College, where he started his lifelong career doing what he loved – teaching! He was a member of the American Statistical Society, and enjoyed doing many things with the Math Club at Lycoming College, bowling, game nights, September picnics and volleyball.
He was dedicated to serving the Lord, and was a member of the Christian Apostolic Church in Williamsport and served as an Interim Pastor there since 2022. He loved to spend time with his beloved dog – Lily. Whether it was taking her for walks or car rides. He also was a great step-fur dad to Pransir (his wife’s dog), who lived with them for many years before he passed away. The love, patience, and kindness he showed his animals will never be forgotten.
