Jimmy McClain Spencer

Jimmy McClain Spencer, 83, of Demopolis passed away Jan. 2, 2018.

Jimmy was a life-long member of the First United Methodist Church where he was active in the choir, the Men’s Sunday School Class, and the UMC Methodist Men’s group, for whom he helped to cook breakfast every month. He was actively involved with the Boy Scouts on all levels for many years. Jimmy was happiest when he was serving and helping others, taking care of everyone before himself. Most importantly, he taught us that loving and supporting your children is something that is done everyday without fail. His mischievous personality and his loving smile and kindness will be remembered by all who knew him.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents, J.M. and Jimmie Spencer; his wife of 56 years, Lucy Couch Spencer; his stepson Mike Reynolds; and grandson Sam Fletcher.

He is survived by his wife, Betty Reynolds Spencer; sister-in-law, Barbara Couch Fowler; children, James (Tyra), Gayle Spencer Flowers, Ted (Denice), and Michael (Leslie); step-children, Scott Reynolds (Debra), James Reynolds (Angela); Rose Davis (Scott), Martha Reynolds, and Frances Cogle (Tommy); niece, Lauren Salter (Mark) and children; grandchildren, Melissa Dobson (Kenny), Danielle Fletcher (David), Colby Tuberville (Courtney), Courtney Flowers, Ryan and Jay Spencer, and Ethan and Caroline Spencer; and great-grandchildren, Zoe, Gavin, Patrick, Emmalyn, JD, and Annalise.
