May 16, 1932 – August 5, 2019
Passed away in Los Angeles, California. Sandy was born to Sadie and Louis Spielman. As a native Californian, he was raised in the San Fernando Valley, graduated Beverly Hills High School, completed his undergraduate at USC and went on to the USC School of Architecture.
He met the love of his life, Lois Rosenfield, on a blind date and their lives became intertwined shortly thereafter into a love story that would span 61 glorious years. Sandy furthered his career and legacy by joining forces with Herb Fond and launched Spielman-Fond Homes, building single family homes and luxurious mansions in Beverly Hills, Bel Air and Pacific Palisades. His vision and ability to create and design property was unparalleled and his attention to architectural detail was meticulous. Years later, Sandy ventured into building and managing apartment buildings on the west side of Los Angeles, allowing him to continue playing in the real estate arena, which he loved.
Those that knew this loving man, know how much he enjoyed the beach, riding his bicycle, taking his motorcycle out for a spin, driving his coveted custom-made hot rod, walking the streets of Melrose Avenue collecting trinkets that he would later turn into one of a kind treasures that only a man with his talent could ever bring to life. He enjoyed endless hours walking the aisles of Koontz Hardware, having breakfast at Factor’s, all the while knowing each employees name by memory. He was fascinated by the history of Beverly Hills, antique and glamorous sports cars, art and sculpture, delectable Italian food, snowcapped mountains in Sun Valley, Idaho and most importantly his beloved family.
Sandy is survived by his wife, Lois Spielman, his son, Steven, his daughter, Julie and his sister, Lois Politi. Funeral Services to be held on Friday, August 9th, 2019 at Hillside Memorial Park at 12:00 noon.
