Raymond Larry Spiers, Sr., age 81, of Montgomery, Alabama passed away on Sunday, April 4, 2021. Raymond was born March 7, 1940 in Alabama to Raymond Corley Spiers and Celia Mabel Spiers. He is preceded in death by his parents and his wife of 22 years, Eunice Faye Harrison Spiers. He is survived by his children, Raymond Larry (Peggy) Spiers Jr., Shane (Beth) Spiers and Brent (Amanda) Spiers; his grandchildren, Melody (Bobby) Crews, Brianna Spiers, Caleb Spiers, Celia Spiers, Morgan Spiers, Mason Spiers and Madi Spiers; his great grandchildren, Cadi Crews and Logan Crews; as well as his sisters, Lana Spiers Holt and Patti Spiers (David) Williams. Raymond retired from Montgomery Police Department after 20+ years of service. He had a passion for muscle cars and owned more than a few sleek sports cars. While he enjoyed driving, he was always in search of a good deal. An Auburn fan, he also enjoyed "Wheel of Fortune" and "Sanford and Son." But he will be remembered most for his love of his family.

Larry and Faye were very supportive of their boys BMX racing in the 80s. Most weekends were spent travelling the United States to attend one event or another, and they always made room for one or two extra kids to go - kids who either couldn't afford to go or had parents that were unable to take them. I was one of those kids.
In 1982 I went with them to a race in Valdosta, Ga. I spent the night so we could get up at the crack of dawn to go. When we awoke Larry was busy getting the trailer ready and Faye had already cooked us a pancake breakfast. I was treated as one of the family. We slept as Larry drove. He set up the tent and was our pit crew.
I will always remember three things about that race. First, hearing above everyone else Faye screaming, "GO BILL!!!". Second, I remember that in spite of her encouragement I came in last in ever race. But most important I remember Larry coming over to me and saying, "I saw you almost had that number 27 in the third turn. I think if you carried more speed through the berm, you'd a had 'em". I remember thinking Ray was lucky that his father was into BMX (my Dad was into golf).
When I looked back as an adult, I realized that it wasn't that he was into BMX as much as it was that he was into Ray, Shane, and Brent. Had they picked something else, he'd have been just as supportive.
As I raise my two boys, I try to remember the lesson he taught me that day. Actions speak louder than words. When my boys told me they wanted to play soccer, I immediately bought them a goal and gear. I couldn't attend every game, but when I did go I tried to yell a loud as Faye and always let them know I was watching what they did. When their friends come over I can't cook pancakes, but I do order a pizza, watch a movie with them, and let them know any friend of the boys is a friend of mine.
I know two things about Larry. He loved his boys and he was proud of them. I hope that people will be able to say the same about me.
