|Spencer James Warner|
3rd Feb 1968 - 14th July 2012
We laid Spencer Warner to rest yesterday. The loss of this genial man will weigh down for a long time to come upon all who knew him. As ever with all that is best in life, you can’t really appreciate ‘it’ until it’s gone. Spence’s obvious great human qualities aside, Glasgow gamers are grappling with that ‘it’ being his quiet indispensability, the simple secret of which Spence explained to me not long after G3 brought us together:
- Always be early.
- Always have something to do.
And so, to all who knew Spence: his legacy is our endurance now he’s gone. Let us gamers who were such a part of Spence’s life honour our friend so as to continue to bring comfort to his family, who meant so much to him.
The last words will be Spence’s. Rest easy big man.
A fond memory
Gunslinger, an old favourite of mine from back in the day, which I was delighted to get to play again- a rare treat. Spence won, quietly ripping me a new one in the process. As the 3 of us walked away from the table afterwards I was enthusing about what a great game it had been and I overheard this exchange:
Steven: “I don’t get it, John got beat and he’s saying it was a great game?”Spence's last laugh!
Spencer: “You’ve got to understand son, for some people it’s all just about playing the game.”
