Homer Donald Spivey, 85, of Webster, Florida, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017.

He was born on Jan. 26, 1932, to Homer and Agnes Medders Spivey.

On the day before his 16th birthday, he began his 51-plus-year career at the Winter Garden Citrus Co-op, later known as Louis Dreyfus Inc.

Donald was a hardworking, God-fearing family man who took pride in watching his family grow. He was an avid outdoorsman and spent many years afield with his children and grandchildren teaching them to hunt and fish. His family traditions will continue, even in his absence.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Frankie Adams. He is survived by their children, Donald E. Spivey and wife Cathy of Webster, Florida, Ronald E. Spivey of Pearson, Georgia, and Rene Cloud and husband Randy of Clermont, Florida.

He was blessed to have 11 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren with one on the way. He also had seven stepchildren, many nieces, nephews and friends that filled his life with joy.

Donald was the oldest of six children. He is survived by his four brothers, Dallas (Pal) Spivey and wife Joyce of Bryson City, North Carolina, Dolan Spivey and wife Frances of Gotha, Florida, Dorsey (PeeWee) Spivey, Daniel (Butch) Spivey, both of Pearson, Georgia; and sister, Darlene Spivey of Winter Garden, Florida.
