Leonia, NJ. – H. Karl Springob, Ph.D., passed away on January 24th, 2024. Born in Jersey City in 1930 he attended a local public school, graduated from Stevens Hoboken Academy in 1946, and subsequently received his Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts degrees from American University in Washington, D.C. and then his Professional Diploma and Ph.D. through Teachers College, Columbia University.

In 1949 the family moved to Palisades Park and in 1967 he moved to Leonia with his young family. He was married to the late Helen Patricia Jemison, loving father of Paul and wife Imanta (Bergmanis), and the late Christine Marie Springob-Nichols; loving Grandfather of Kyle M. and Laila C.

Dr. Springob was a licensed psychologist, educator and consultant over 40 years in various settings.
