According to many, Spencer was "the kindest person I have ever met." Spencer loved animals of all kinds, and they all loved him as well. He was always patient and kind with his cousins and was loved dearly by them. He enjoyed listening to and playing music, making artwork including collages and clay figurines, and collecting all manner of knick-knacks and Beanie Babies. He loved his thrift store clothes, quirky t-shirts and wild socks.
