His birth certificate says John Spiering, but we all knew him by 'Spo'. He was not about fluff, so you will not get that here. But, he would want you to know about growing up in Elmwood, Nebraska, playing sports and running the streets of a small town where fun was at times creative, but never harmful. He would also want you to know about his parents, Norman and Joan, who both have passed away, and his brother Jeff whom he loves. Life took him in different directions, eventually bringing him to Carson, Iowa. He most certainly would want you to know about his wife Amy and their son Trent, and his daughters Rachel and Emily - his most precious treasures. His ideal happiness was to love and protect his family and friends, work hard, have a cold one and a smoke, then call it a day. This is exactly what he did. One of a kind was 'Spo' with the purest of hearts, always smiling, and striving to be the best version of himself to all. From him, he would say, with a few choice words, live on, don't miss me too much.

My wife Sharon and I worked with John many years at Goodyear and were competing together in Midwest antique tractor association tractor pulls for a few years. John was one of the hardest workers we ever knew and a lot of fun. We have talked about John many times but only found out today that he had died. We wish his family well and hope they always remember the amazing man he was. Jim and Sharon Eichelberger
