Obituary

Spencer L. Hofbauer, 28, of Battle Creek, passed away unexpectantly on Tuesday, August 25, 2020, in Battle Creek.

Spencer was born on January 11, 1992, in Petoskey, MI. He was a very willful young man with a great sense of humor and the gift of a sarcastic wit. Spencer graduated from Petoskey High School in 2010 and then went on to become an EMT and eventually a Paramedic. He was employed at Lifecare Ambulance in Battle Creek.

Like so many others, Spence struggled with Mental Health issues and succumbed to his fears and despair despite the love and support that surrounded him.

Spencer leaves behind to cherish his memory his mother Gayle Hofbauer; siblings Joseph Hofbauer II and Skylar Hofbauer; and much loved young woman Linzy Benedict. He is also survived by his grandparents, Victor & Lenora Cuthbert and Larry & Dianne Hofbauer; several aunts, uncles and cousin; and father Joseph Hofbauer.

A celebration of life service will be held on Monday, August 31, 2020, at 4PM, at Starks & Menchinger Chapel & Cremation Services, 2650 Niles Rd., St. Joseph, with Pastor Chris Momany officiating. Friends may visit with the family from 2PM until time of the service on Monday at the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made to Carol’s Hope, 4032 South M-139, St. Joseph or The Code Green Campaign, PO Box 732, Liberty Hill, TX, 78642. Those wishing to leave an online condolence may do so at www.starks-menchinger.com.

My heart goes out to Spencer's family. My son Andrew Jakeway and Spencer were friends during high school. Andrew also suffered from Mental Health issues and died the same way. I know what you are going through. Smile when you think of Spencer. Don't cry. I know that is easier said than done. It's taken me 3 years to be able to do that some of the time. If anyone in the family ever needs someone to talk to please friend me on facebook. I would love to talk to you. I pray you find some peace! RIP Spencer! I am sure you and Andrew are having a great time reuniting in heaven!
