I met Spenc at Vance AFB working for Serv-Air. My late husband Mike Moseley and Spenc were very good friends.
I am sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I knew Allen from the ballpark. He was always so friendly and intentional in talking to me. He always told me about his kids, and I’d tell him about mine. He was genuinely concerned about me when I battled cancer, and always asked if I was healthy since then. I will miss his smile and chats at David Allen Ballpark.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Spencer family.
I met Allen when I first started working in the tool crib in building 141 out at
Vance Air Force Base. He wa always so friendly and had such a Great Smile. He was so calm ,cool and collective. He helped me a lot and I learn a lot about the different tools used on the aircrafts . He was dearly missed when he retired.
He touched everyone’s life that he knew and met.
He will be dearly missed

Frances, Stephanie and family,
Misty and I were so sorry to hear about Allen. We have very fond memories of countless 4-H events where he helped and attended. Allen was always good to ask me about my kids and how they were doing. He had a great heart of caring for others. He loved his family and the 4-H Program. We will be praying for comfort during this difficult time. God Bless.
