William W. Spriet

Died: Wednesday, October 20, 2004
Age: 54
William W. Spriet, 54, died on Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2004. He was a first generation Belgian-American, a member of a family whose trade was wet plastering. Mr. Spriet’s grandfather, Alphonse, and his father, Walter, passed their expertise and talents as skilled tradesmen on to Bill, who raised it to the next level by creating Spriet Plastering LLC.

Mr. Spriet’s philosophy of living was best epitomized by the meticulous way he cared for his family, friends and clients and the pride he took in his trade.

He will be missed by family, friends and members of the community. His devotion to the people he touched may be best exemplified by the way he approached his customers — from the coffee he’d take to clients in the morning, to his guarantee that: “If your home is not clean when I leave, don’t pay me.”

He will be remembered for his exuberant thoroughness, his passionate approach to life and his work ethic, which are best demonstrated in the construction of the home he completed for his family in 2002.

Mr. Spriet, a tall and quiet man with an unassuming demeanor and strong character, was also a fiercely honorable and trustworthy man who stood behind his family, friends and work with integrity and humility. He took great pride in his daughter’s academic successes, which currently include her pursuit of a degree in geological engineering at the Colorado School of Mines.

He was also devoted to his wife, Jamie, a commitment that helped the couple achieve a strong and lasting 34-year marriage. His hobbies included sailing and antique cars.

He is survived by his wife, Jamie; his daughter, Jessica; his parents, Walter and Marguerite; a brother, Greg; and an extensive group of loving family members and friends who will remember him for his greatness and deep compassion for others — his talented hands and enormous heart.
