I coached Tommy in high school football in Stuttgart.He was a joy and at the same time exasperating to coach.I told him a hundred times that we couldn't stand any holding penelties and he said coach it ain't holding if you don't get caught!Rest in peace Tom until we meet again.
I am so sorry for your loss. Mr. Spencer was a wonderful man and I am not sure I can ever remember a time that he was not smiling and could always make anyone else smiles. Prayers for his family during this time.

To the Spencer Family: I am so sorry to hear of your loss. "Tommy" as I knew him when we grew up together as kids in Stuttgart was a good friend. Rose Spencer and my Dad worked together at Riceland Foods in Stuttgart. We all thought the world of the Spencer famiily. When Tommy had knee surgery at Memorial Hospital, NLR when he was 19, I was working at the hospital while attending nursing school. I saw Tommy's name on the patient list and immediately went to visit. He reminded me of that the last time I talked to him. I wished we would have stayed in touch more over the years. I know your hearts are saddened by Tommy's death, but time will heal you. Let us all celebrate Tommy's life and the goodness of his soul. My prayers are with you all. Jana Baldridge 7/12/2016
