Thomas John Spears

Thomas was born in Albany, OR and graduated from Gilchrist High School in Gilchrist, OR.  He began logging as a young boy with his Dad, but he enjoyed the challenges of underground construction.  He began a battle with Diabetes at the age of 10 but never let that slow down his love of grabbing life by the horns.  He was a Jr. Bull Rider, Hunter, Fisherman and avid Four wheeler.  As the youngest of his family he developed close bonds with his nephews and nieces.  But the twinkle in his eye came from his son, Coye.
He is survived by his fiance; Anna Spence, son; Coye, parents; Harvey and Ellen Spears, sister; Falice (Robert Dees) Spears;  Brothers; Harvey (Gretchen) Spears, Donald (Michelle) Spears; Brad Lytle; Nephews; Johnathon & Garrett Dees, Chet, Wyatt and Willy Spears, Nieces; Kayla, Brittany, Kaitlynn & Braelynn and many Aunts and Uncles and Cousins.

  1. To Harvey, Ellen and ALL the family: We are so sorry for your loss of Tom, and wish to send our sincere heartfelt sympathies to all of you. We are sure this is the hardest trial you have ever been through. Tom was a great kid when we knew him, and we’ve often spoken of him. It was a blessing to have him in our lives. Please know we will keep you all on our hearts and in our prayers for some time to come.

    Bless you all,

I am Lee’s cousin, a friend of Donnie’s as well as the owner of Donnie’s dog Woodi…and over the holiday Tommy’s name had come up, and in asking how he was I found out this terrible news…To Harvey and Ellen and the entire Spears family I am so sorry for your loss…Tommy was an awesome guy I enjoyed meeting him…he was very funny and kind…this is heartbreaking to know his son has to grow up w/out him, but atleast you will be able to see some of Tommy in Coye as he grows…in memories people never die but live on forever..I hope with time the pain will stop and with research this desease will be cured.
    Much love you all.
