Spencer and Chris' love and devotion to each other was clear and was a great thing to share in from time to time. Chris worked so hard to raise a good man, and he and Marie clearly succeeded. Spencer was a precocious child, and grew to be a mature, charming, and confident young man. Spencer was ambitious and always willing to lend a hand, and his family should be so very proud of the young man he became. I am so very sorry for your loss.

I recall with fondness the many times that Spencer came to the office with Chris over the years - when he was a young boy, and throughout his junior high and high school years. I remember his big smile & warm-hearted personality - we all loved seeing him. And I recall the countless times that Chris shared, with a father’s love & pride, everything that Spencer was doing. A boy could not have been more loved. My deepest sympathy to all the family for this tragic loss.

I met Spencer my first year of high school. We sat next to each other in band and he quickly became my best friend and one of the best parts of my day. We dated for a while, and although in the end it wasn't meant to be between us, I loved him with all my heart. He was kind, sweet, incredibly thoughtful, outgoing, caring, and just one of the best people I have ever known. He was kind to everyone he met and he cared so deeply about the people in his life. It's been a while since we had last talked and it breaks my heart. I always thought there would be more time. I miss you, Spencer. You will always be in my heart.

Marie
There are no words. My heart breaks fo you. In my thoughts and prayers.
Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

I didn’t know spencer long, but I met him while he was in Nashville. He’s one of the nicest people I have ever met. Wonderful personality. Funniest laidback gentlemen. I would always tell him I’d be his photographer and take pictures of him. Fly high spencer. I’ll see you soon bud.
