Spencer was a firm believer in God and Jesus Christ, his son and our savior. He said his prayers most every night before bed and offered prayers for those in need, those that he loved, and our servicemen and women here and abroad; for Jesus to heal and protect them, keep them safe, and to please hug those family members already there before him. Spencer loved his bird dog Smokie and his pig Pork Chop. Spencer (Big Country) enjoyed hunting, fishing, boating, riding ATVs, mudding in his 4×4 Chevy, playing poker, shooting clays and sharing good times with his family and friends in Kentucky, Nebraska, and Texas. He loved country music and dancing to his favorite songs.

Spencer played football for Leander High School and graduated in 2016. He was attending Austin Community College and after completing his lower division courses, had plans to transfer to Texas A&M University and pursue a degree in Petroleum Engineering.

Spence made friends everywhere he went. Thank you Lord Jesus for the time you allowed us with him. Spencer was no doubt one of the best you’ve ever shared with this world, and now he’s yours again. Please let us always remember the light you showed upon this world through him. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
