Spencer Connell, 17Spencer Allen Connell, born Hastings, Minn., Aug. 24, 1995, to Oct. 28, 2012.
Spencer Allen Connell, born Hastings, Minn., Aug. 24, 1995, to Oct. 28, 2012. Our son and brother, who went before us to be with Jesus, is so deeply loved.
Spencer was a sweet, caring young man who will be so painfully missed but now lifts his hands in praise and worship to his King, God our Father.
The pain is gone for him, and our hearts are broken, to be healed that day when we see him again in heaven.
Spencer knew Jesus.
Those he left behind are many: father, Tim; mother, Karen; brothers, Judd and Will, and twin sister, Anna; and hundreds of loving family.
Spencer was a typical teenage boy in some ways, but he was an exceptional son, brother, and friend. He showed us that he loved and cared about us with his sweet soft spirit and giving ways.
The outpouring of love our family has received has shown us the love and graciousness of our amazing and wonderful God, who causes all things to work together for good, for those who trust in Him.
Memorial service to be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church, 2035 15th St. W., Hastings, with public viewing from 2-4 p.m.
Arrangements were handled by the Caturia-Smidt Funeral Home, Hastings, 651-437-9419, www.caturia-smidtfh.com.
