Aunt Ida and Family,

Uncle Spot will truly, truly be missed. Family gatherings will not be the same without him. We have had some really great and fun times, like going to football games, having the great cookouts at your house and who could ever forget the time we all spent New Years Eve together in 1999 when we all thought the world may come to an end!.

Spot was the “King” in Burger King and definately the “Wind” under the wings of the Buffalo Wild Wings.

Love to you all,

Wayne, Cindy & Monica Chase

MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE GREEN FAMILY. IDA AND SPOTWOOD ARE THE MOST WONDERFUL PEOPLE. SPOTWOOD ALWAYS MADE ME LAUGH. HE WAS THE BEST DRESSED MAN IN THIS VALLEY. I WOULD TELL HIM WHEN HE CAME TO WORK AND WORE HIS PINK SHIRT THAT ONLY “REAL MEN” CAN WEAR PINK AND IT MADE HIM LAUGH. I WILL MISS HIM SO MUCH. REST IN PEACE SPOTWOORD. PRAYER TO ALL THE GREEN FAMILY.

I was very sorry to hear of Spotwood’s passing. I have fond memories of a times I was able to play golf with you, your father and Nick K. Those were always enjoyable rounds.

Spotwood was a gentleman and a fine person. I have no doubt that he is in Heaven negotiating for strokes.
