COLUMBIA - Ronald Shannon Spencer, age 45, went to be with the Lord on Friday, June 2, 2017 peacefully at his home surrounded by family. He was the husband of Nancy McClellan Spencer. They shared 24 wonderful years together.

Born in Tampa, Florida, he was the son of Ronald Spencer (Joann) and Kathryn Boyd Lockaby (Gene). He graduated from H.B. Plant High School in 1990. Shannon studied Business Management at Georgia Southern University where he played tennis. He was employed at BMB Irrigation and worked as a supervisor for 18 years.

He loved his Lord and Savior and adored Pastor Dean Reynolds. He enjoyed vacationing to the mountains and beach. He was an outdoorsman, and took pleasure in what life had to offer including: hunting, fishing, and camping, but most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.

He will always be remembered for his kindhearted and gentle soul. He was always willing to help someone in need. He was loving, caring, and considerate to everyone he came in contact with. He was a free spirit and touched many lives.

Along with his parents, he is survived by his loving soulmate and wife, Nancy Spencer; his daughters, Stephanie Nichols (Dean) and Lyndle Sharpe (Jeff); grandchildren, Isabella, Brady Mac, Mckenzie, and Mason; sister, Shelly Schmidt (AJ), nieces, Reese and Marin and nephew, Mason, all of Florida; and uncle, Robert Spencer (Kelly) of Kentucky. He will also be missed by his much loved cat, Bear.

His Celebration of Life will be held at Sawney's Creek Baptist Church, Ridgeway, SC on Saturday, June 10, 2017, at 11:00 a.m., officiated by Pastor Dean Reynolds.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Sawney's Creek Baptist Church, 14605 SC-34 East, Ridgeway, SC, 29130, or Saint Jude's Children's Hospital.
