“The Last Rodeo”
"Some boasts in chariots and some in horses; but we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God." Psalm 20:7
November 1984, dawned bright, sunny, and a bit chilly for Betty Jean Morales Spencer. Thanksgiving was over and Christmas would soon arrive. But, Betty and her husband, Morris McDean Spencer were about to receive a present that was much better than any gift from a store. On Tuesday, November 27, 1984, Miram Jerome Spencer made his advent into the world. A cowboy was born. It was a very good day!
Morris McDean Spencer was a cowboy at heart. His love for horses was shared by his wife, Betty, and passed down to his children. So, it was only natural that Miram, lovingly called “Goob,” shared that passion with his older siblings.
Horses were his passion. He enjoyed the smell of leather. He loved the spirit of competition, roping, headin' and heelin', goat and calf roping, any activity that involved HORSES. Even as a little guy, Goob could be seen, dressed in his western attire: boots, jeans, and his trusty cowboy hat, following his dad around the C Bar B in Collinston,LA.
Miram attended Delta High School and Ferriday High School. He loved welding and operating heavy equipment. He was also an expert when it came to “dressing out” any type of wildlife: deer, hogs, rabbits, any type of wildlife.
Miram was a “people person." He loved helping people, a trait of a real cowboy.
He never met a stranger. His quiet demeanor could change in an instant from a timid, quiet man to an outgoing joke-filled guy who delighted in making those around him laugh uncontrollably.
When he was younger, Goob joined New Star M. B. C. He later joined Mt. Pleasant C.O.G.I.C.
On Sunday afternoon, October 9, 2022, Miram Jerome Spencer shed his earthly raiment, donned his Heavenly robe, and caught a cloud bound for Glory. Memories of his gentle spirit, his loving heart, and his joy for life will always be cherished by his son, Jamirion Washington, his daughter Malazja Davis, the “love of his life,”Consandra Johnson, and step daughter Malasia Morris; four sisters, Cheryl Madison, Mary Thompson, Felichia Morales, and Shaunica Spencer; three brothers: Morris Spencer, Jr., Brian Spencer, and Eddie Spencer; two aunts, Maxine Ridgell and Eliza Morales; two uncles, Lucky and Johnny Morales; five nieces, two nephews, three great nephews, a great niece, his “aces” Lawrence Hobbs and Kay Hobbs; his employer/friend Kegdrick Morrison, Sr. and Kegdrick Morrison, Jr., his “rodeo family, and other family members and friends.
Preceding him in death were his grandparents Eddie and Elizabeth Spencer, Pete and Roseanna Morales; his parents, Morris and Betty Spencer, his brother Pete Spencer, and a nephew Reggie Spencer, Jr.
“Oh, the last goodbye is the hardest one to say.
And this is where the Cowboy rides away.”
