On Friday, September 28, 2007, our wonderful son and brother, Spencer Lee Green, went to be with the Lord, following a difficult 5 year battle with cancer. Spencer was a 2001 graduate of Bryan High School. He was attending Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma when cancer forced him to come home for treatment.
Spencer was born on December 29, 1982 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and moved to Bryan, Texas in 1988. He enjoyed making people laugh and was voted by his classmates to be awarded the senior superlative, “Personality Plus”. In high school he ran track, specializing in the hurdles under the great coaching of David Greeno.
Spencer had a love for Christ and encouraged others to pursue faith in Christ. He was a leader in his youth group and played drums and guitar at the Bryan Church of the Nazarene where his father serves as pastor.
Spencer’s great passion was music. He wanted to write music and travel and perform. He was able to do that for a while with a band he formed called “So Long Good-byes”. Some of his songs can be heard on his website, http://bootlegspencer.com ; additionally his artwork and thoughts are included. More of Spencer’s music can be heard at myspace.com/spencergreen.
Carrying on Spencer’s memory in their hearts will be his parents, Lonnie and Christie Green and his brother, Scott, all of Bryan, Texas. He is also survived by his grandparents, Gene and Marietta Post of Stillwater, Oklahoma, and Bob and Jo Green of Bothell, Washington, along with many uncles, aunts and cousins.
Friends are invited to greet the family at a viewing to be held on Monday, October 1, 2007 from 6 to 8 PM at the Church of the Nazarene, 2122 E. William J. Bryan Pkwy. in Bryan (across from the Post Office). A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, October 2 at 4 PM also at the Church of the Nazarene.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to: “The Spencer Green Memorial Fund” and mailed to the Church of the Nazarene, 2122 E. William J. Bryan Pkwy., Bryan, TX 77802.
The family wishes to thank all of their friends who have provided so much support and love and prayers during this difficult time.
