Dr. Spiers...what a CHARACTER! He had friends in all parts of the hospital, not just in ICU! Maybe because you could hear his voice down the hall! He was so friendly, funny, and unpredictable! I am confident that we all have stories we could tell. He enjoyed life surely because of the perspective his work placed in his path. Latessa, please know how sorry I am for your loss. My heart aches for you in this time of devastation. And Mary Elizabeth and Jackson, your Dad made such a difference in the lives of others...and he adored you both. Somehow he was able to manage both aspects in life that were dear to him; medicine and family, and make it look easy. The entire medical community in this area has been in sheer shock upon the knowledge of his passing. He will truly be missed by many.
