Omar was born October 2, 2017 in Chicago at Prentice Women’s Hospital, and peacefully left this Earth on Friday, October 29, 2021 at Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, surrounded by his proud family and extraordinary medical staff.
Omar was the courageous son of Marc and Morgan Spitz; silly brother of Isabella and Talia, and dog Lucy; beloved grandson of Robert ( Papa) and Denise (Nana) Haire and Rabbi David (Saba) and Susan Spitz (Bubbi); inspiring nephew of Uncle Colin and Calaeb Haire, Titi Tammi and Uncle Chris Salgado, Auntie Zuz and Uncle Michael Hunter, along with many more special Aunties and Uncles; dear cousin of Arianna, Lawson, Kai, Logan, as well as many loving cousin-friends; and heroic Godson to “KK” Niemann.
Omar was a beautiful, melt your heart sweet or even sometimes wake up on the wrong side of the bed, little boy. He was persistent, smart, hilarious, and easy to love.
Omar lived a full 4 years with love, laughter, family, friends, Paw Patrol, garbage and fire trucks, and so so many adventurous car rides! He was not just a typical boy but our strong, brave warrior. During Omar’s journey, he met so many wonderful people that impacted his life and now our family can see that so many of you have a special place in your heart for him. Thank you for loving our boy, who is now in Heaven smiling down on us with the strongest of all hearts.
In lieu of flowers, monetary donations are appreciated to Omar Spitz, which will then all be donated in his name to Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, where Omar received all of his care. The donations will go towards helping young future patients while receiving his name on the Lurie Children’s recognition wall.
