Dr. William J. Spitz, (Yaakov) of Norwell, formerly of Weymouth, passed away peacefully on June 14th surrounded by his loving family at the age of 75.
Dr. Spitz was a highly respected dentist in Marshfield Hills for many decades. He attended Boston College High School, Stonehill College and Georgetown University School of Dentistry.
Billy loved his profession as a dentist, frequently mentioning that he truly enjoyed his patients. He volunteered his services at an Israeli clinic through Dental Volunteers of Israel. Billy loved traveling to Aruba, Israel and around the US with his family, summers at Humarock, Harwichport, Nantasket, and playing sports, primarily golf, with his family. His most joyful times were cheering on his children at sporting events. Billy’s biggest accomplishment was his children.
Yaakov was a faithful member of Chabad Cape Cod, a devoted student of the Torah, and a strong supporter of Israel and the Jewish people.
He will be deeply missed.
