Elton Teel Spruill, Jr.

April 11, 1958 — May 3, 2017

On Wednesday afternoon, May 3, 2017 our beloved father, brother and grandfather  was called to his eternal home.  

Elton Teel Spruill, Jr was born in Norfolk, Virginia on April 11, 1958.  He was the only son born to the late Barbara Duynes and Elton Teel Spruill, Sr.  Elton accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized and he loved the Lord.  He graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in 1976. Soon after, he married his high school sweetheart, Cheryl Lynne Sutton. To their union, two children were born.  Elton served in the United States Army as a Morse Code Interpreter (O5H).  Most of his military career was spent overseas.  After an honorable discharge from the army, Elton returned to the United States to live in Norfolk.  He spent most of his retired years with friends and family.  Elton is most remembered telling jokes ,sharing life stories with the people he loved and trying his best to hit those high notes to the songs of his favorite band, Earth, Wind and Fire.  

Elton is survived by his two children, Lynne Carter and Elton Teel Spruill, III, four sisters Sharon Dallas, Leslie Spruill, Kimberly Foreman, Barbie Lynne Spruill and Gail Parker, one granddaughter Tasheena and four grandsons, TreQuan, DeQuan, Jordan and Jeremiah,  3 nieces and 8 nephews, a host of great nieces and nephews, one uncle, aunts, cousins and a host of friends who truly love him.
