Spencer Christian Simms

March 27, 1970August 21, 2019

Spencer Christian Simms was born on March 27, 1970, in Oklahoma City. He attended Casady School, graduated from Bishop McGuiness High School in 1989, and earned his degree in business from the University of Central Oklahoma. He was a citizen of the Chickasaw Nation and worked in the oil and gas industry. He always had a sparkle in his eyes, a mischievous grin, accompanied by an infectious laugh, and cared deeply for those around him. Spencer loved OU Football, traveling, and all things fun. He learned to love gardening from his mother and looked forward to spring every year. He considered his backyard, which he packed full of flowers, his "jurisdiction" of the home he loved with Leigh. Spencer lit up every room with his zest for life. He had a magnetism that drew people to him and never met a person he didn’t like. Everyone was a friend or friend to be, and he loved giving each and every one a hard time with a smile and a hug. Spencer was preceded in death by his parents Sandra Billups Cerny and Sam J. Cerny, and Barry Simms. He is survived by the love of his life, Leigh Elizabeth English, his siblings Laura Lee Lester, Lisa Louise Trail, Alyson Ray Simms and his nephews, James Luke Lester, Brennan Patrick Lester, nieces, Morgan Lee Trail, Tyler Louise Trail and a group of close friends he cherished. Services will be 5:00 pm, Wednesday, August 28th in the St. Edward the Confessor Chapel at Casady School. Visitation will be Tuesday, August 27th, at Hahn Cook/Street & Draper, with the family receiving friends from 6:00-8:00 pm. Tributes and condolences can be left for the family by going to www.hahncookfuneral.com. Spencer admired and supported St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital and would appreciate, and consider generous, any donations directed there. Spencer's friends and family are heart broken and he will be missed. He will be ever present in sweet memories and retellings of countless Spencer stories.

For the people who did not know Spencer owned the Laguna suits pool in the resort ware we first met him & Leigh. That day our lives changed for ever and we felt 10 years younger as we crated memories of living life to the fullest with Leigh& Spencer. Spencer will be missed by us more than any one will know. Spencer would call us at least 2 to 3 times weekly at all hours just to talk. We love you both. Bob&Barb

Spencer always had a big smile on his face. 😁 Mischievous, of course. Wonder what he’s been up to!? Having fun was his M O. And he succeeded at having a great life, on his own terms, of course! Sleep well——we will forever miss you. 😎
