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.
