A Haddonfield resident, Mr. Spicer compiled a 603-287 record in 42 seasons of high school baseball coaching at Haddonfield, Moorestown, and Paulsboro. (He also coached one game at Cinnaminson, but gave up the job for health reasons.) In addition, Mr. Spicer served as the head baseball coach at Rutgers-Camden for two seasons.
He also was Haddonfield's head football coach from 1953 to 1973, compiling a 123-57-8 record.
"When people talk of records and he obviously took a lot of pride in that, he also took a great deal of satisfaction in the relationships with his players," said his son Chris, a 1966 graduate of Haddonfield, who played football and baseball for his father.
