Washington County is mourning the loss of a coach that has worked with young athletes for over 3 decades. 57-year-old Louis Spencer recently lost his battle with cancer. Over the course of 33 years, Spencer taught PE classes and coached football and basketball at Washington County Union school.
Spencer's son, Louis Spencer Jr.,says his dad was his role model.
"To me he was someone that I always looked to for guidance and advice, someone I always wanted to be like. I never in my life wanted to be like someone else- not a celebrity. I always wanted to be like him."
Spencer's funeral is planned for Saturday, October 16th in the Washington County Union School gymnasium.
