Lowell D. "LD" Spears, 77, of Wilkinson, passed away Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at his residence.
He was born Aug. 20, 1939, in Maple Valley, Ind., to Ernest and Ruby (Phillips) Spears.
LD graduated from Knightstown High School in 1957 and retired from Guide Lamp in Anderson.
He was an avid sports fan, who loved Indiana University basketball, Colts football, and NASCAR. He was also a "diehard" Democrat and a MOPAR fanatic.
In the summer time, he'd generally be seen in his bibs, out in his garage where he loved to tinker. He also loved visiting with friends and family, enjoying a cocktail or two.
He is survived by his sister, Carolyn Pierce of Wilkinson; children, Tanya Stromme of Orleans, Shawn Spears of Knightstown, and Kelly (husband, Scotty) Seybert of Shirley; two grandsons, Nick Stromme of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Thomas Spears of Greenfield; special companion and The Worlds' best caregiver, Vivian Grizzell of Wilkinson; and several nieces and nephews.
He was like a father figure to many.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Carolyn (Madison) Spears; parents; brothers, Donald Spears of Carrollton, Ohio and Ronald Frank Spears of Greenfield; and sisters, Jeri Zimmerman and Jean Colip, both of Wilkinson.
Memorial services will be conducted at 1 p.m. Saturday at Condo & Son Funeral Home, with visitation from 11 a.m. until time of services.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, American Stroke Association, or to the Hancock Health Hospice.
