Obituary for Elder Richard Brett Spencer 29 Mar 2003
Richard Brett Spencer was released from the pain and suffering of his mortal sojourn March 27, 2003, after a gallant, 3 & 1/2 year battle with leukemia. He was born March 4, 1976 in Salt Lake City to Daniel O. and Louise Smith Spencer. He was the fifth of six children. Rich married Amanda May, Aug 2, 2000 and later solemnized their union in the Salt Lake Temple. He served an LDS Church mission to the Brazil, Curitiba Mission.

A positive outlook, unique sense of humor and concern for others over self endeared Rich to family, friends, ward members and all with whom he became acquainted. Rich graduated from Skyline High School, where he donated much blood while playing on the rugby team. Working at Zions Bank Retail Loan Center facilitated Rich’s meeting many wonderful people including his future father-in-law Bob and lovely daughter Amanda. He dearly loved the Tetons, especially Phelps Lake where he proposed to his eternal companion, Amanda. Rich was the master of the art of nicknaming, with most everyone and everything in receipt of his deft, witty attention. He lived life to the fullest and loved to laugh as well as make others laugh, often with a shocking, humorous retort. Rich had a genuine, honest, thoughtful and insightful way of treating people, earning the love and respect of all with whom he came in contact.

Throughout his mission, educational pursuit, and fighting his disease, Rich exhibited a strong will, indomitable spirit, boundless faith, and never-complaining attitude that affected everyone. Rich was a kind, thoughtful, loving and devoted son, brother, companion, patient and friend. We will never know how much he suffered, but we do know that he did so with courage, faith, dignity and overwhelming concern for others. While leukemia prevented his graduation from the “U”, it did not keep him from graduating from life with high honors.

Richard is survived by his wife Amanda, his parents, brother Wes (Marnie), sisters Amy (Scott) Root, Brooke (Ryan) Morris, and Leslie (Wade) Sticht, parents-in-law Robert and Kathy May, brother-in-law Ryan May, grandmother Phyllis Spencer, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and dog Keemo. He was preceded in death by his sister Christine Louise, grandparents Joseph Fielding (Jr.) and Zella Farr Smith, and grandfather Orson D. Spencer.

The family expresses appreciation and gratitude for their excellent loving care to Cottonwood Hospital Oncology staff, LDS Hospital Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic staff and caregivers, IHC Home Health Nurses and Services, and Home Hospice care.

A viewing will be held Sunday, March 30, 2003 from 6 to 8 pm at Larkin Sunset Gardens Mortuary, 1950 E. 106th S., Sandy and 1 hour prior to the service. Funeral services will be held 12:00 noon at the Parkview Ward, 9855 S. 2300 E. Internment will be at Larkin Sunset Gardens.

In lieu of flowers the family suggests making a donation to the Deseret Foundation in the name of Richard Brett Spencer: 8th Ave and C Street, SLC, Utah 84143.
