Carson J. Spencer, 34, of Westminster, CO passed away on December 7, 2004. He was born and raised in Glastonbury, Connecticut. He was a graduate of The Loomis-Chaffee School 1988 and of Bowdoin College 1993. He began his immensely successful sales career with Sun Life of Canada/Employee Benefits in Atlanta where he went on to achieve significant distinction that was recognized by the entire industry. At age 28 he opened the Denver office for Sun Life as Manager and continued to set the standard for sales success.
In 1999 he, with a Sun Life colleague, formed Beacon Risk Strategies, an employee benefit service company, with offices in Denver, Seattle and Wellesley, MA. Again, his achievements with Beacon set a high mark that was acknowledged by his peers around the country. At the time of his death he was applying his creative skills to the formation of U S Health, a company whose purpose with his vision was going to try to solve the problem of those without health insurance.
His passion for sports, which included golf, soccer (State Champs /age 13, prep-school varsity and college JV), lacrosse (prep-school and college varsity), ice hockey (prep-school JV) and skiing, was without equal.
He leaves his parents Robert T. and Joyce J. Spencer of Westminster; sister Dr. Sally Spencer-Thomas and husband Randall R. Thomas, nephews, Nicholas, Tanner and Jackson of Conifer, Colorado and his Band of Bowdoin DEKE Brothers all over the country. In his short time with us he touched many hearts and made a difference. All will remember him for his appetite for life, his infectious sense of humor and his magical way of engaging people. He will be deeply missed.
