Rodney Allan Spencer, 52, of Tampa, was born in Gorman, TX on August 2, 1960. He passed away on September 17, 2012 after a valiant and courageous 16 month battle with cancer. He kept his spirit and positive outlook until the very end.
He is survived by his parents, Rodney & Ruth Spencer of Boerne, TX, his sister, Andrea.Pannes of San Anselmo, CA, and his partner of 25 years, Tim Manka of Tampa, FL.
Allan was a gentle and kind soul and brought joy and laughter to all those whose lives he touched.
Allan tended towards ancient Earth- and Nature-centered spirituality and the belief that we were all connected and one with the Universe.
In line with his beliefs, these words, adapted from Ancient Gaelic Runes, were said over him shortly after his passing, by Chaplain Roosevelt Hanna of H Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute:
"Deep Peace to You"
Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.
