IN Memoriam of Carl E. Spragg, M.D.
Bob Grayson and Gallery G would like to remember a good friend and artist, Carl E. Spragg, M.D. This page is in memoriam of this wonderful artist and his work.
He was a graduate of Muskingum College (1950) and received his MD degree from Ohio State University College of Medicine (1955). He served in the United States Army, stationed in Heilbron, Germany (where his 4th child was born). He was a family physician in New Concord from 1959 until he caught the Y2K bug in 2000 and retired after 41 years of practice. He was active and served as officers in the following medical associations: OSMA, AAFP, OAFP, Muskingum County Academy of Medicine, and Muskingum Valley Academy of Family Physicians. He was the physician at Muskingum College and director of their health services. Carl was also Muskingum County Health Commissioner.
After retirement, Carl discovered a latent love of painting; he has several paintings showcased in both Gallery G, Zanesville, and Primrose Retirement Community. He was also father figure to a flock of rubber duckies that followed him around Primrose and brought many laughs to his fellow residents. He was a world traveler, amateur carpenter, recreational farmer, avid reader, ardent puzzler, and general jack-of-all-trades. He was loved by all and will be missed by many.
