Special Nephews Eric Snelgrove, & Declan Tizzard who loved Uncle Spencer so much. His Uncle Don & Aunt Kay who were like a second Mom & Dad to him.

Spencer’s coworkers at Terra Nova Motors and Hickman’s Chrysler, The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy for going the extra mile, The Wag Club for taking such good care of Bo. Minette LeDrew for taking care of Henry with his love of Flight. Paradise Minor Hockey and Baseball are an important part of the families lives. The 905 Viking Royal Canadian Air Cadets for their support to Henry you are all special people in our lives. Spencer was a remarkable man who was a friend to many. He was a quiet but witty man not big in stature but with the biggest heart who loved so many. During his illness he delivered meals to seniors and care packages to the homeless. He was always there to lend a helping hand to his neighbors mowing grass and clearing snow. Spencer built many back yard rinks and entertained Henrys friends which included hot chocolate and warm chocolate chip cookies at the end of the night. Countless summer barbecues with Henrys friends at his pool. He left a lasting impact on all that knew him, and he will be terribly missed. The life that they lived when Henry was born in the short fourteen years would be an envy to most families, they were so blessed. The fight, determination and strength that he showed to beat his illness was immeasurable. Spencer ran many races over the years but the race that he wanted to win the most was not to be. “Forever loved never to be forgotten”
