HARRISVILLE - Patrick Andrew Spencer, 39, of Harrisville, died Saturday, March 16, 2013, just one day before his 40th birthday, March 17th ,which he celebrated in Heaven.
Patrick was born March 17, 1973 in Nashua. His parents, Andrew Spencer and Joyce Spencer Jorgenson, were blessed with his arrival. His full head of black curly hair stayed with him throughout his life. When he heard that he had cancer he said "Will I lose my curly hair?" That was our Patrick.
Patrick lived in Harrisville for the past seven years, however spent most of his adult life in the Concord area. He worked for many years at the Pizza Hut in Concord, before starting his own business making and selling dog biscuits. He was extraordinary at connecting with people. He loved giving gifts…you may have received one of them. Patrick and Dale, his dear friend, made shopping an adventure. Patrick loved playing computer games, listening to music, and was very proud of his extensive movie collection. Above all, Patrick found great joy in his family and adored his nieces and nephews dearly.
Patrick is survived by his father Andrew Spencer of Harrisville; his mother and step-father Joyce and Ray Jorgenson of Harrisville; his three sisters Melissa Spencer of Harrisville, Stacy Corban of Swanzey, and Cyndi Godzyk of Manchester. He will also be greatly missed by his 12 nieces and nephews and his beloved cat, Simba.
Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial mass Thursday, March 21, at 11 a.m., at St. Peter's Church of Divine Mercy Parish Vine Street, Peterborough, with the Reverend Gerald Belanger, pastor, as celebrant.
In lieu of flowers the family suggests that contributions in Patrick's memory be made to: NOFAS NH/Child and Family Services, c/o Joyce Jorgenson, 5 Sargent Camp Road, Harrisville NH 03450
