SPENCE, Okema K., Sr.,


88, joined the love of his life, Dorothy Spence, in Heaven on November 8, 2020. He leaves behind a daughter, Theresa Moore and her husband, Kenneth; a son, Okema Kiddoo Spence Jr.; a sister, Joanne Gabber and her husband, Will; a brother, William Spence and his wife, Peggy. He had seven grandchild­ren and nine greatgrand­children, and was extremely proud of each one.

A veteran of the Korean war, he went on to become a driving force as a VicePresid­ent at Cummins. His tenacity and determinat­ion were always present, and he was recognized as "a force to be reckoned with!" Yet, he had a wonderful giving nature, and provided help to many throughout the years.

He loved fishing, traveling and lighthouse­s, but nothing more than the companions­hip of his beloved wife, Dorothy, and a good margarita. His life will be celebrated in the hearts and memories of his family, friends and those who knew him.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributi­ons may be made to: Autism Society Central Virginia, 200 South 3rd Street, Richmond, Va. 23219.
