Steve will always be in my heart.

My sincere condolences to the Spencer family. Steven Spencer will be greatly missed. I cherish the fond memories of good times spent with Spence at Bradley U. He had a positive outlook on life, willing to try adventurous things, and enjoyed the company of all people. He lived life to the fullest. He was quite unflappable. May Spence rest in peace under God's grace and loving care.

I am so very sad to hear about Steve’s passing. Bruce was my high school chem teacher, and I used to babysit for Ed and Steve when they were infants. In 5th grade, I had Ed in my homeroom, and I had Steve for a class, Steve was an intelligent young man who was also very kind to others. I enjoyed him as a student very much. He had an infectious smile and laugh. The world will miss him!
