Patrick James Spencer
Oct 01, 2018

Patrick James Spencer was a man with a giant heart, who loved his family unconditionally. Growing up in Lexington, Massachusetts, he was an avid sports player and fan, and a long-time fixture of the Hayden Recreation Centre, working as a camp counselor and a basketball coach for a boy's travel team in the late 1970s and early 1980s. A man with great wit, Patrick found humor in even the smallest of life's details and had a way of putting into words the thought everyone was thinking in a kind, humorous, and concise way. He loved watching and keeping score of March Madness basketball, cheering on Notre Dame football, Providence College basketball, and the New England Patriots. He loved rototilling in his garden and canning his homemade tomato sauce. He loved a good mystery audiobook or classic radio show to listen on his drive to work (and he loved solving the mystery before the characters in the story would). He was a huge music lover, particularly of one-hit wonders and easy listening music. But, above all, he loved his wife and children.
A 1981 graduate of Bentley College (now Bentley University), Patrick worked as an accountant for Minuteman Regional High School, where he met his wife, Denise. He was currently working as the School Business Administrator at Old Rochester Regional School District.
Patrick passed away on October 1, 2018, at the age of 59. Patrick was the beloved husband of Denise (Bramanti). He was the loving and proud father of Theresa of Billerica, Anthony of Pelham, NH and Phillip of Billerica. Son of the late Robert and Helenann Spencer. Brother of Matthew of Stratham, NH, Brian & his wife Robin of Lexington and Michael & his wife Janet of Duxbury. Son-in-law of Lucy & the late Joseph Bramanti of Burlington.
