Traci and family. Our thoughts and hearts are moved. Since 1992, Spencer has woven his way into the fabric of our working family. His “mother hen” affection of his relationships with those he served while with us are fondly remembered. His undying love for his family, the sacrifices made to enhance opportunity for the children was noticed by all. We speak Blessings on each of you as Spencer Sunstrum’s Celebration of Life is molded in our hearts. God bless our brother, Spencer.

Spencer was my financial advisor for 13 years. Because of his excellent financial guidance, i was able to put both of my children through college and retire well taken care of.
Spencer did love his family so much. We spoke of them often when he would visit. He would tell me what each one was doing. I could tell how proud he was of them. He spoke often of his wife, Tracy. He would talk about the places they had gone and trips they took.
Spencer was a good man and will be sorely missed by all who knew him!

Spencer was my annuity consultant for more than 20 years. He loved his family and often took “fun” sheets I had for his kids to play with. I continued to contact him when I needed advice, even after I retired and he changed departments. I trusted him and thanks to his guidance and expertise, I was able to retire well before I dreamed possible. We’ve played Words with Friends for ages. He usually beat me! Spencer will be missed by so many. Prayers for comfort, peace and strength for the days to come.

So sorry to hear about Spencer. Cancer is a crazy, awful thing!!
When I first started working at 1st American 18 years ago, he was one of the first people that said hello to me. I wasn't even hired yet. I thought he was so tall and handsome. Mr. Lynch told me that he used to work in the shoe industry. After that I was always so self conscious about my shoes, wondering if he was "judging" me. LOL
He had a very distinct laugh and I could hear him laughing from his office down the hall. I will always remember his laugh and his Hands On approach to servicing his clients. They adored him.
He will be missed.
