Scouts Dedicate Bench to Murdered Dad: Postponed to June 24

The murder of Stephen Spina remains unsolved, but the Mamaroneck man has not been forgotten. The Girl Scouts of Mamaroneck and Larchmont will honor his memory at a bench dedication ceremony near Lanza Field at Harbor Island in Mamaroneck Village on Monday, June 24, at 7:15 pm.

(Last week’s original date and rain date were both rained out.)

“The Girl Scouts wanted to do something special for Skyler in her father’s memory.” said Lori Barger, Skyler’s Girl Scout troop leader. Mr. Spina had been active in his daughter’s troop for many years.

Other local Girl Scout troops were supportive of the idea, and many of them helped donate money towards the bench.

“We chose a location between two trees facing the field.” said Ms. Barger. “Since Stephen was so active with Little League and men’s softball leagues, we thought this was the perfect location.”

The Girl Scouts are dedicated a bench in honor of Stephen Spina.

“Spoon” Spina was popular in the community – both on the ball field and as a letter carrier with the Larchmont Post Office.

He was found murdered in his Mamaroneck Gardens apartment on September 17, 2007. There were no signs of forced entry into the apartment. Mr. Spina had taken a day off from work.  (See: Mamaroneck Man Murdered.)

Lt. James Gaffney, spokesperson for the Mamaroneck Village Police, said the investigation is ongoing.

Stephen Spina Softball Classic: July 18-19

Family and friends are also holding  ”The First Annual Stephen Spina Softball Classic” on July 18 and 19 to raise funds for a reward they hope will motivate someone to come forward with information to help solve the murder.

“We’re looking for corporate sponsors to help offset costs,” said Christine Foley, Mr. Spina’s sister. Potential sponsors are asked to call (863) 956-6180 for more information.
