Joseph Kent Spencer
Our beloved son and brother Joseph Kent Spencer passed away on Tuesday, March 16, 2021 in Provo, Utah due to injuries sustained in a car accident.
Joseph was born in Logan, Utah on May 28, 1998 and grew up in Hyrum and Providence. He graduated from Mountain Crest High School, where he enjoyed participating in choir, theater, and the improv troupe. He excelled academically and was part of his school’s Academic Olympiad team.
After graduation, he spent some time working and assisting his mother at home before serving a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the San Diego California mission from 2017 to 2019. After returning home, he attended BYU.
Joseph’s demeanor was quiet and easygoing, but quick-witted, often catching us off guard with his hilarious observations. He had an infectious laugh and smile, and he loved to make others laugh. He loved being with his family and playing music and games with them. He loved reading and passionately discussing fantasy novels and movies, video games, and role-playing games.
Joseph was a friend to everyone, and everyone who knew him liked him. He was peace-loving and kind. He had a strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His restored church.
He is survived by his grandparents, Dan and Louise (Smith) Spencer, Connie (Barnes) Measom; parents, Wes and Marnie (Measom) Spencer; siblings, Sam, Hannah, Danny, Elisabeth, Adam, and Ben and Autumn (Davis) Spencer. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Kent Measom.
He was loved by many and will be missed by many.

For Dan Spencer - Your noble grand son was sent to the earth for a brief few years yet he was prepared for his mission in Heaven by serving as a missionary here. I can't help but think that with all the world-wide deaths due to Covid, that the Lord needed some of His faithful missionaries to teach these and other departed spirits in Heaven. I hope the talk by President Spencer W. Kimball entitled Tragedy or Destiny helped you in your moments of grief. I will remember you in my prayers. You will yet see your faithful grand son again and he will be able to ease your mind concerning his passing by telling you how busy he has been in the Lords work in Heaven. Jim Nowa

I met Jo in high school. We were in the drama department together. Jo was the kindest person I have ever met. He had a way with people- he made them feel comfortable and even though he was very shy he was also very funny. I cannot express my sadness when hearing of his passing. I am praying for you guys, his family and friends, and sending love your way. Sadie Alden
