Larry Joe Spence

We have said goodbye to the most important man in our lives. He took joy in seeing how well Kaci and Karen have done and the lives they have made with their Marks. He was proud of the great accomplishments Haley (& Travis) and Maddie have made and thrilled to be able to see Clover and Magnolia grow on a daily basis. He was able to see his bonus daughter Misty not long ago and that made his heart happy. All his girls were his heart and soul. He wasn’t a big man but he left one hell of a large impression on anyone that met him. His love for speed, hot rods and rock-n-roll carried on to his girls along with his great hair, temper and potty mouth!

Larry Joe Spence, 72, of Cuero passed away Tuesday, Dec. 14, 2021.  He was born Feb. 12, 1949 in Piggott, Arkansas to William and Earline Rogers Spence. He married Irene Moore on Mar. 2, 1971 in Victoria.  Larry worked as a crane operating engineer until he retired.

He is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Irene; daughters, Kaci Spence (Mark Crawford) of Canyon Lake, Karen Spence Borkowski (Mark) of Cuero and Misty R. Bourke of Benton, AR; nephew, Jeffrey Spence of Aransas and grandchildren, Haley Spence Luzania (Travis) of San Antonio, Madalynn Lopez of Canyon Lake and Clover and Magnolia Borkowski both of Cuero.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Eugene Spence and nephew, Dillon Spence.

He was a true outlaw and anyone that knew him had a good story.We all take comfort in that he went quickly with no pain with Irene and Karen by his side. There will not be a public service per his wishes. He’s with all his rowdy friends, his big brother, his momma and daddy now. We have our angel watching over us as he did in life. Larry Joe Spence always did it his way.
