Spudnuts Owner Dies

Richard Wingfield, the owner and operator of Spudnuts, died this week at the age of 75, John Yellig reports in today’s Daily Progress. Wingfield has run the shop since he and his wife opened the Belmont landmark in 1969. His daughter and son-in-law have taken it over, but they’re not sure if they’ll be able to keep the doughnut store open.

  • I’ve gotta say those are the best donuts in Charlottesville. The only negative was that you had to get there early in the AM to get a really choice selection (and I’m not a morning person). But I don’t think the donuts were available all day long.
