Hadley Brian Spencer, 26, of Maywood, passed away on Dec. 26, 2019, at Great Plains Health in North Platte.
Hadley was born on June 27, 1993, to Dennis L. Spencer and Judy M. Kramer in North Platte. He graduated from Hayes Center High School in 2012 where he was an honor student in band.
Math was Hadley’s favorite subject in school and he was always using his math skills to figure out things. He also loved to cook and tell others about his own special recipes. In his spare time, he played digital games and dreamed someday of becoming a YouTuber.
Upon graduating he remained in the Hayes Center-Maywood area for most of his life. He worked for Pat Messersmith for several years as a ranch hand working with the cattle and doing some farming. The past few years, he spent much of his time working for Benjie and Marie Loomis on their farm, where he became very close friends with them. In the winter and early spring he also worked for Mark Clifford, feeding cattle and doing other numerous chores during calving season. Once farming season began again in the spring, he returned to work for Benjie on the farm. He loved doing things outside.
Hadley had a daughter Lilly Kleist, 5, of Stapleton who he was very proud of and always looked forward to seeing. The past couple years, Hadley was in a special relationship with Selena Urbina who had just recently become his fiance. They were both excited to find out that Selena was expecting and due later this summer.
Hadley was preceded in death by both his grandparents and great-grandparents.
