In Memoriam : George R Spencer : 1993 - 2004
|Obituaries are so clinical offering
scant insight or reflect the uniqueness and
essence of a man.
"George lived in Monterey for 29
years before moving back to Olean, NY in 1998. A veteran of two
wars: Korea and Vietnam; he served in the U.S. Air Force for 14
years. George is survived by his son Christopher (Rhonda) Spencer
and grandson of Sumter, SC, his sister Clarice Kohl and his beloved
niece Darla Warfield (Randy) of Olean. A graveside military service
was held Sept. 9, 2004".
George was larger than life! His great sense of humor often sent
people into stitches. He was rowdy but always remained his own man
and could be very endearing. He enjoyed many pursuits - including
watching sports car racing, football, baseball and other sports on
TV. However, his abiding passions were genealogy
and his Honda Goldwing motorcycle. He was a member of the Chapter X
Goldwing bike club in Olean. He left behind many friends in
Monterey, CA and two very dear friends in Palatine, IL. In 1997 his
"Goldwing" escapades were acknowledged with a prestigious award -
The Trophy for "long distance solo rider" from CA to Lake George, NY
at the Americade bike rally. He had traversed the USA - cross
country three times - solo - from CA to NY, the last trip was to
return to the home of his birth, the town of Olean, NY and his final
George's death was quick and unexpected. We are sorry to see him
gone and his death has left a hole in the lives of many people.
This web site will remain online not only as dedication to George's
memory but also to help trace the line of Spencers for future
"genealogists" who have acquired much
information from all that he has garnered over a period of ten
years. Hopefully, it will continue to be a valuable resource for
future generations of Spencers.
George's "autobiography" is
available "12th Generation" and supplementary
information "31st Generation"
