Spence was the most wonderful caring husband, father and friend ever.
It will never be the same without him and so strange to be alone after
65 years of a wonderful marriage.
His loving wife, Betty

My Dad -- what can I say? He was a wonderful, caring, generous and loving father. I could not have asked for anyone better. I am so grateful that his life ended peacefully, and I thank God for the privilege of being his daughter for 62 years.
