Scott Paul Spencer, age 62, of Hilda, TX, passed away Monday, March 4, 2013. He was born to Frank Spencer and Dorothy Brinkoeter Spencer in San Antonio, Texas on December 17, 1950. He was preceded in death by his father, Frank, and his sister, Beverly. He leaves behind his mother, Dorothy; wife, Cindy; son, Aaron and wife, Cynthia; daughter, Kelly and husband, Shane; grandchildren: Hunter, Guy, Catherine, and Emma; stepson, Phillip; stepdaughter, Carolyn and husband, Charlie. Scott attended MacArthur High School, Texas A&M, and graduated from Sul Ross in Alpine, TX. He served in the Air Force for 20 years, retiring at the rank of Major, with a career as a B-52 navigator/bombardier. During his service, he was proud that he had produced a training film for the Air Force that was entertaining as well as instructional. He continued to have a life-long interest in the history of flight and warfare. His second love was his ranch at "The Hill", where he used his carpentry skills to build Cindy a home from a "three-sided pole barn" and where he and "his other wives" (his hunters) held a deer camp each fall. Ever the consummate salesman, Scott could convince people he cared about to go beyond what they thought they were capable of doing. A wordsmith and true Renaissance man, he knew how to turn a phrase and led his life "his way".
