Worked along with Bobby at New Hanover County Schools. He was in my opinion one of the best carpenters I have ever met. No job was to big for him. He showed a lot of his skills to my son when working with him. My deepest sympathy and condolences to his family and friends.

Bob Spencer will be missed more than words can express! His humor, his faithfulness, his deep concern for what is right, his consistent and prompt giving, his generosity that left almost no cause or opportunity not contributed to, his patience in driving the van to pick people up for church and the years of faithful attendance at church and working in the nursery are all things that we as a church are so grateful to God for... they were quite literally a part of who he was as a disciple of Christ.
