Victor H. Spencer (Vic as known by many), 92 of Pilot Mountain, NC passed away peacefully on March 8th, 2023 at the Joan and Howard Woltz Hospice House in Dobson, NC with family by his side. He lived a long and wonderful life. Vic was born in Smithfield, NC and after losing his parents, John and Elva Spencer, at a young age, was adopted by his Aunt and Uncle Viola and Cecil Irvin. Vic loved his country, was a US Army Veteran and served in the Korean War. But more than anything Vic loved his family, music, singing (even if he had to make up the words) and being around people. He was such a people person and never knew a stranger.
Vic could never stay still. He enjoyed being outside and was always finding something to do. He loved working in produce and did so the majority of his career with Plemmons and Irvin in Winston-Salem and later owned his own little produce stand and store with his daughter in Pilot Mountain.
Vic was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He always looked forward to visits from his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Until the most recent years he had an amazing memory and told entertaining stories, sometimes with a hint of exaggeration. He was a member of the First Baptist Church of Pilot Mountain and loved his Lord. We all know now that Vic is dancing and singing to loud music with our Lord and those loved ones that we have lost before him. We will hold you in our hearts until we can hold you again in heaven.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
You have been faithful over a little;
I will set you over much.
Enter into the joy of your master. – Matthew 25:21
