    Mr. Spencer was a pleasant man and a joy to know. I had the pleasure of being his nurse the last 8 months.i often told him how much he reminded me of my own grandfather and in the time we knew each other he was starting to feel like family. I loved him dearly, and In that short time he made a huge impact on my life and I will never forget him. My condolences to all his children and grandchildren. I am so sorry for your loss and will be praying for peace for all.

    What a special man he was. I didn’t know him long and we weren’t especially close but he seemed to always have a smile on his face and a kind word to say. He was always very sweet to me, my godson, and my dogs. I enjoyed sharing military stories with him and hearing about his children, grands, and great-grands. It was obvious that he cared very much for his family. As we say in the Navy, fair winds and following seas, Mr. Steve. Your presence will be greatly missed!

    My sincerest condolences to all of his loved ones.
