March 31, 1990 - September 11, 2020
There is no greater gift than parenthood and the good Lord granted my husband Michael and I with just that in the Spring of 1990 when John “Spencer” Addison Meyers entered the world on March 31st and forever changed our lives. We suddenly lost our individual identities and became known as “Spencer’s parents”, and that was fine by us. In the blink of an eye, our towheaded “Angel Boy”, as I called him, sprouted the most gorgeous curls any girl could ask for and a smile that could light up a room. His laughter was infectious and his sense of humor, as his friends would say, could turn a frown upside down. At 4 years old Spencer started playing tee-ball and that began his love of sports. Through the years he played baseball, basketball, football and even tried his hand at tennis but soccer was his favorite. He loved his friends, playing video games, dancing, being silly, music of every genre, spinning poi balls, hanging out by a campfire, being with family and a good ham sandwich. Spencer brought so much joy in our lives and to those that were around him. He had such an energy that those who encountered him will remember him for life. Our Sunshine Boy battled addiction for more than 12 years and helped many friends along the way to recovery. However, his precious life was cut short due to his disease of addiction on September 11th, 2020. He will forever be missed by his father Michael Meyers and myself, Jonna.
