Spencer Samuel Weston

Spencer Samuel Weston, 69, our dad, husband and papa, entered the spirit world on Saturday, June 26, 2004, after a long struggle with heart disease. He was born in Pine Ridge, S.D., to Gilbert and Nancy (Brown Eyes) Weston on August 18, 1934. Spencer attended Porcupine Day School during his grade school years and then attended Pine Ridge School for a short time. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1950 and proudly served his country during the Korean Conflict. After his completion of duty in 1953, he returned to Porcupine. Spencer and Eldean Iron Cloud married in 1958 in Chicago, Ill. They were blessed with six children: Carmen, Farrell "Bodie," Marlin "Moon," Scott, Lionel "Beans," and youngest daughter Colleen. Spencer began employment with the Bureau of Indian Affairs in 1960 at the Pine Ridge School and later transferred to the Porcupine Day School, where he continued his employment as a bus driver until his retirement in 1986. He believed that each student was entitled to the very best education. After his retirement, he began employment at the Porcupine Clinic as a security guard and worked there up until the time of his death. He also believed in improving his community and making it a safer place to live. Spencer was a very dedicated employee with a strong work ethic. He and his sons raised cattle until health problems prevented him from doing what he loved so much. In 1998, he and Isaac White Face were selected to be Headsmen for the Porcupine District by Chief Oliver Red Cloud, a position which he was very proud to hold. Spencer had many great friends whose company he truly enjoyed. He always had time to share an old story and have a good laugh. He was very fond of his grandchildren and proud of their accomplishments. His grandchildren include Wacey, Bradley "B.J." and Kiley, Derek and Colby, Chance and Kristin. He was preceded in death by his parents, his daughter Colleen and his grandson B.J. He was a dear husband, dad, papa and friend. He will be deeply missed. Wake services will begin at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Porcupine Year Round School Gym and continue until service time on Saturday. Services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Porcupine Year Round School Gym with Rev. Steven Mitten, S.J., Rev. Peter Klink, S.J., Rev. Bill Pauly, S.J., and Rev. David Matzko, S.J. officiating. Interment will be at Our Lady of Lourdes Cemetery in Porcupine, S.D. Services are under the direction of the Osheim-Catron Funeral Home, Rapid City, S.D.
