His love for creating grew and blossomed, shining at its brightest when he did what he did best, making or doing it for someone else.
Londell was the epitome of a big heart and his love had no boundaries. Londell never saw any bad in anyone and often put himself at great risk and danger to help a stranger in need. Nothing could stop him from giving all he had to help a friend or family member. His career was as a Sheet Metal Mechanic and he owned Diamond Stainless. Londell will be missed beyond imagination, but Londell will never be forgotten! Londell is preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Michael Spencer. Survivors: Girlfriend; LaVerne Spracklin, siblings; Melinda Spencer Sackett, Patrick Spencer, and Lora Calhoun; and numerous nieces, nephews and many, many friends.
