His lifelong struggle with asthma was one of the factors in his decision to create a higher-quality vacuum cleaner.
He and his nine siblings grew up in Pennsylvania and Ohio as the children of William and Elizabeth Spangler. His marriage to Lettie Holtz resulted in a daughter named Jennie and sons named Francis and Clarence.
Englishman Hubert Booth was the inventor of the vacuum cleaner; Spangler significantly improved upon Booth's design, and William Hoover, in turn, modified and advanced Spangler's ideas (after purchasing Spangler's vacuum cleaner patent).
