Spencer Ray Harris was born on February 19, 1964, in Fort Worth, Texas, where he grew up and lived most of his life except when he briefly lived in Cedarville, Arkansas. He grew up in Southwayside Baptist Church, attended Paschal High School, graduated from Cedarville High School, and briefly served in the U.S. Navy before returning to Texas.
Spencer began working at Montgomery Ward, where he met his wife. He bought his first home at age nineteen and started his family and marriage by age twenty. His God-given talent sealed his career as Mr. Fix It. He soon began working at Bruner Kirby Company, where he increased his skill as a handyman, which led him to open his first business, Vacuum's Etc. By age thirty, he owned two houses and became a Landlord as well. Lastly, he dedicated years of service to Dillard's Warehouse.
Spencer loved his family, his roses, always planting them at each house he owned. Worked all his life tirelessly, grew up too fast, and left too soon.

His only brother, Keith Coughlin and wife Lori. His grandchildren; Dylan, Lizzy, Emily, and baby Charles. Uncle to Bethany and Preston.
