I didn't know about him until recently. He seemed to be very prolific and I have enjoyed hearing what I've heard from him. My condolences to his family and friends.

Andy, thank you for sharing that link. He really moved me with his soulfully playing and singing. Rest in peace, Mr. Bohren.

There was a beautiful celebration of Spencer's life in New Orleans on Sunday. Marilyn and the family were embraced by hundreds of old friends.


Here's a beautifully written obituary by Keith Spera of the New Orleans Advocate https://www.theadvocate.com/new_orleans/entertainment_life/keith_spera/article_81b1db0a-8b16-11e9-9c31-b34a81d30d6e.html

and another loving obit from his hometown Casper WY
