John F. Spencer

August 6, 1943 — April 8, 2022

Girard - John F. Spencer, 78, of Girard, died Friday, April 8, 2022, at the Hospice House in Poland. He was born August 6, 1943 in North Jackson, a son of Charles and Wanda (Witherstine) Spencer. He lived most of his life between Texas and Ohio.

John enthusiastically earned his GED at age 62. He had worked as a printer and as a truck driver for many years, including driving for the Youngstown Vindicator. John was a gaming enthusiast, sharing the love with his sister and son playing Castlevania and Frogger. He enjoyed car shows, and spending time with his family. He was a fan of the Houston Astros and the Miami Dolphins well before their perfect season. John was a compassionate man, always willing to lend a helping hand to those who needed him.

He leaves his loving wife, Tracy (Magan) Spencer, whom he married September 8, 1988; two sons, Charles W. Magan of Girard, and John Spencer Jr. and his fiancé, Jamia Sunderland of Girard; two brothers, William C. Spencer and Gary L. Spencer both of Youngstown; a sister, Carrie (Leroy) Dean of Houston, TX; a granddaughter, Gracie May Magan; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Besides his parents, John was preceded in death by three brothers, Kenneth R. Spencer, Robert A. Spencer, and James A. Spencer; a sister, Beverly Tesche; and a grandson, Codie James Magan.

John will be dearly missed. His life was an absolute blessing to all those who had the pleasure of knowing him.
