    Dr Spady was our family doctor for many years. Delivered our 3 children and patiently care for each of them. He will be fondly remembered and missed by many.

    I was so sorry to hear of Dr. Spady’s death. I came to know him because he was a visitor to my mother, Alice Scott, on many occasions at her apartment, then assisted living, and now the rest home where she is living now. She appreciated him so much–I cannot tell you enough how meaningful it was to her for him to visit and to always offer a prayer for her before he left–really, a highlight of the visit. He will be missed! Please know that our thoughts are with you, his family and other friends. May God’s peace fill your hearts in the days ahead.

  3. We mourn for your loss. I will miss seeing you (Ken) at Raspberry Ridge (as will many, I’m very sure). I always made a point of coming over to say hi to you (that profile is hard-to-miss). You (Ken) were our family doctor growing up, I think you actually drove mom to the hospital when she gave birth to my brother Ron. Steve, I remember you as Spud, you used to come down and play basketball with Ron and Earl, in the haymow. Anyway, family, you can rest knowing, I believe, that he is with God now, and those that have gone before.

  4. Very sorry to hear about Dr Spady. He was a good person enjoyed him being our neighbor when we were yourger

  5. We are so sorry to hear of Dr. Spady’s death. He touched so many lives here in the county, including ours. He was our family doctor for nearly 30 years and although our current doctors are wonderful they are not Dr. Spady. He was special. He visited us at home when we couldn’t make it to the clinic. He met us after hours at the clinic – once to stitch up a gash our 6 year old son had. He sang Gospel choruses to help calm him. He helped to bring both of our sons into this world. The first one ended up being down at Children’s in Seattle for a month. Even though Dr. Spady was no longer the attending physician, he would call every few days to find out how the baby was doing and to tell us he was praying for him. Dr. Spady was honest. He would tell us if he didn’t know what was wrong or what to do. He would then refer us to a specialist. This might be unnerving to some, but it was refreshing to us. It made us feel like we could really trust what he did know and prescribed. Thank you for sharing him with us.
