Jack Spence was a fine man. He was my deacon when I moved here many years ago and was always there for my family and I. He will be missed by many but Jesus has a new companion today. God bless the Spence family in this difficult time

We are deeply saddened to hear about Mr. Jack’s passing. He was definitely a Richmond Hill icon. More importantly, we know that his heart belonged to God, family, friends, and our country....and saved a piece of it for the wildcats. We will keep the Spence family in our thoughts and prayers. Please let us know if you need anything! We love y’all! ~The Hires Family
