    We may be related my father Leonard Charles Spiller his nickname was Jack born at Little Grassy Lake October 10, 1932. Jack grew up in Herrin, Illinois. graduated from Herrin High School class if 1950. Jack had 4 siblings Howard, Eldon, Katie, and Joyce. Jack’s parents were Loyd Spiller 1903-1978 and Adeline Kennedy-Spiller 1904-1985. Loyd came from a very big family many siblings. My name is Shaun Leonard Leonard Spiller. I was born about 6 weeks on February 23, 1964 after Allen in this obituary. Allen and I could very well be cousins. Anyways life is precious and reading this obituary of someone from where my dad grew up with the same last name. I was born the same year as Allen in 1964 illustrates that fact. My deepest prayers abmnd well wishes for Allen Spiller’s family. My email
