November 19, 1990-October 16, 2008

Inexplicably, tragically, abruptly, and without warning Spencer Thomas Lightburn treasured son, brother, nephew, grandson, cousin, and friend was taken from our lives on October 16, 2008. Spencer had the incredible ability to bring joy to those around him, with his infectious smile he could light up any room. Always plotting his next move whether it be in sports, school, or weekend activities, Spencer lived life large. Spencer's quick wit and his gift of making others feel special, endeared him to all who had the good fortune to know him. Spencer was spontaneous, strong, self-confident, sincere, sensitive, smart, and always stylin' but most of all Spencer loved and was loved.

"If tears could build a staircase

And memories a lane,

We would walk right up to heaven,

And bring you home again."

A celebration of all that was Spencer will be held Saturday October 25 at 1:00 p.m. at Sevenoaks Alliance Church, 2575 Gladwin Road Abbotsford, B.C. We welcome all of you who were lucky enough to have shared in his life. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Abbotsford Community Foundation Spencer Lightburn Memorial Award, 204-2890 Garden Street Abbotsford, B.C.

We love you with all our hearts, miss you with all our souls, and look forward to a time when we can all be whole again.
