Joel S. Greenspan (1953 - 2013)

Joel S. Greenspan, 59, of Houston, passed away on Monday, February 18, 2013 after a long illness. Born and raised in Springfield, MA, Joel moved to Houston, TX in the 1980's.

Joel loved music and theater and was an aspiring actor. In 1985, he started working at a CD store in Houston in the classical music department, and over the years developed an encyclopedic knowledge of classical recordings. In 2002 Joel opened his own CD store in Houston, Joel's Classical Shop, which specializes in classical, musical theater, and film soundtrack recordings and is one of the few independent music stores still thriving today.

Joel is survived by his two brothers, Herbert Greenspan of Becket, MA, and Michael Greenspan of Giv'at Haim Meuhad, Israel.
