STANLEY S. SPIEGEL, 83, of Marlton, a former President and CEO of Esscube Engineering, passed away on Mar. 4 at his home in Marlton. Stanley was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and an avid fan of the Brooklyn Dodgers. He graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School at the age of 16 and received his Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Pratt Institute. Right before graduation, Stanley began his career as an engineer working for RCA and earning a Patent for a Frequency Modulator. Stanley was drafted into the Army during the Korean War, where he taught engineering and radar and received an honorable discharge. Ultimately deciding to start his own engineering company, Stanley opened Esscube Engineering in 1981 and successfully earned top government contracts in the tri-State area. He was a member of Tau Beta Pi, a national engineering honor society, and Mensa, a high IQ society. Stanley was the Vice President of the B’Nai B’Rith Elmwood House and his family donated the library room. He was the lead engineer in designing the Holocaust Memorial at the Cooper River Park. Distinctively, Stanley reached a personal lifetime milestone by donating 50 pints of blood to the Red Cross. Following retirement, Stanley continued a lifetime of teaching by becoming an adjunct professor in Advanced Math and Statistics at Camden County and Burlington County Community Colleges. He also tutored younger students at the Tutoring Club of Cherry Hill. He is survived by his wife, Sheila Spiegel, of 62 years; daughters, Robin (Fred) and Lauren (Allan); grandchildren, Lindsay (Josh), Dana, Michael and Jason (Kristen); and great-grandchildren, Hudson and Ziva.
