Even in his last weeks, he was a man after God's own heart, declaring the peace he felt knowing it was almost time to meet his Savior Jesus Christ. He was born on August 14, 1939 in Elkhart, Indiana to Elizabeth and James Spohn. He graduated from SMU with a degree in Industrial Engineering and served as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy from 1962 to 1968. He spent the bulk of his career at Allied-Vaughn, producing and distributing media for Christian ministries. Later, he served as Director of Development for International Christian Media Association. After retirement, he raised money and developed meaningful partnerships for Alfa Omega, a ministry that spreads the Gospel to Romania. He is survived by wife Suzanne Weaver Spohn, sister Davina Koger, children David Hurst, Kristiana Reinhardt, and Matt Spohn; and two stepchildren, Sunny Logsdon and Paul Crane.
