Spencer C. Leuthold - Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

April 20, 1986 - September 21, 2021


Spencer C. Leuthold was born on April 20, 1986 in Minneapolis. He graduated Hopkins High School (2005) and Gustavus Adolphus College (2009). Spencer was a remarkably bright individual who enjoyed golfing, running and watching virtually every sport. He worked as a financial analyst with several advisors under the Ameriprise umbrella.

In his partner Abbey’s heartfelt words: “Spence had one of the biggest hearts and most thoughtful minds of anyone around. He was the type of person that challenged you to think bigger and encouraged you to be a better version of yourself. His favorite activities included laughing at stories from memory lane, having new experiences, jovially pressing the buttons of those he cared about, and of course – playing with his dog Winnie. Spence was thoughtful, kind, caring, and quick witted with just the right amount of stubbornness – all things parents dream their kids are.
Spencer passed away on Tuesday 09/21/21 at just 35 years of age after a brave battle with Glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer. Spencer fought every day to stay alive, but the cancer was more stubborn than he was. He was extremely grateful for the life he lived and so fortunate to have loving friends and family.”

Spencer is survived by partner, Abbey along with their dog, Winnie aka Fred; mother, Susan; father, Peter (Katie); his older brother, Jordan, partner Michelle and her children: Tristan, Gage, Rhiannon and Revy; former spouse, Emily; along with innumerable friends and relatives. He will be deeply missed by so many.

Spencer was cremated and a memorial service will be held in his honor on October 9, 2021 at 3:30pm at Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel followed by a gathering at Brookview Golf Course from 6-9pm.

    Abbey, I hate that you are having to go through this at such a young age. I will keep you in my heart and prayers as you navigate a different life without Spence. I pray for you to hold tight to his memory and that you find strength and comfort.
    To Spencer’s mother and father, I can’t imagine losing a child so my heart breaks for you in a special way. My prayers for you will be to find a peace and comfort at this incredible loss.

    Growing up with Jordan and Spencer was unforgettable. Lazy summer baseball squabbles, springtime H.O.R.S.E with cracking ice in the gutters. Frantic Halloween jogging from house to house. Flashlight games. Muddy bullhead fish. Pharmacy candy. So much candy. Playing Dr Mario with Susan (she showed no mercy). Custom snow drifts plowed by Peter for us to burrow into and get cozy. That time we found some Playboys in the woods behind the church. Spence had the best trampoline tricks, and the tightest makeshift bowstrings. So many gut laughs. Remember when Pat stuck a nail in that spray paint can?! Wow…

    We’re gonna miss you like hell, but there is no question that you’ve changed our lives forever. We love you man.
