Robert was born on Oct. 9, 1935, in Annona, Texas, to Jon Robert and Irene Tucker Spencer and had lived in Brownwood for the past 42 years. He was married to Edna Stires on April 10, 1955, and together they raised four children. Robert worked at 3M as a Machine Operator and was a member of the New Life Church. He enjoyed sports, tinkering in his shed and fishing. He was always on the lookout for aluminum cans to recycle so he could finance his next fishing trip. He loved having coffee with his friends at Texas bank, and when the weather was too bad to fish, he would stay home and do puzzles.
