Michael C. Spencer June 9, 1947 - Oct. 1, 2019 Michael Clair Spencer passed away Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2019, after waging a valiant struggle against a rare cancer (cholangiocarcinoma). Mike was born June 9, 1947 in Yakima, Wash., to John and Carole Spencer. He grew up on the West Coast spending time in Yakima, California and Portland. He was a good student and piano and coronet player. At Oregon State University he met the love of his life, Kenni Walworth.
