Spike will be missed by his many friends here in Auburn. I always enjoyed catching up with him on his numerous visits back home on Sundays. If he is judged in the great beyond by the number of people he gifted laughter to, he will be well taken care of. He had a way to make the tragic amusing and the painful laughable. The world was lucky to have him for a while. Rest well brother.
