Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Gerald Spencer


I studied drafting under Mr. J. E. Johnson at Tech High. Mr. Johnson made us all act like adults, and he treated us as if we were adults working in his Architectural design office. I benefited greatly from his tutorage, and he had more affect on the path of my life than anyone else. I was in the JROTC at Tech High, and this was about my only high school social activity. I worked at the Safeway grocery store on Hemphill Street all of the way through High School (40+ hrs/wk). I did not think that I could afford to go to college (single divorced mom), but somehow (waiting tables & Army Contract Pay) I attended and graduated from Texas A&M with a BSME in 1961.

I am a registered/licensed Mechanical Engineer plus a registered/licensed Electrical Engineer in 26 of the Continental United States plus one Pacific Island territory. I am the engineer of record for the design and construction of more than 1300 Air Conditioning, Electrical and Plumbing systems for Commercial and Institutional Buildings. I am also the engineer of record for the design of many new and modifications to existing Hydrazine, Cryogenic, and Space Simulation systems for NASA-Houston and NASA-White Sands (rocket engine) Test Facility.

I started my Engineering Practice in 1967 when the Architect/Engineering Company I was working for asked me to work without pay while they caught up with their Cash Flow. I told them that I could, but that I would need to moonlight for money to pay for my living expenses. After a few months of moonlighting, I was making much more by moonlighting that my salary, so I hired an engineer friend of mine to take my position in that firm, and then I started my own firm (Spencer & Associates, in 1968 and then incorporated in 1971 as Spencer Engineers, Inc.).

More than 400 of my architect-engineering (AE) commissions have been for the Federal Government to design the plans to construct and/or modify various Federal Government facilities in the Continental USA, Europe, Middle East, Caribbean, Asia, and the Pacific Islands (VOA). I have completed AE contracts directly with the U. S. Army, U. S, Navy, USAF, NIMA, DOS, GSA, USPS, NASA-JSC, and NASA-WSTF for these projects. I am no longer working on the design and construction of commercial and institutional projects but I did enjoy that work. I have not accepted any more Overseas Federal Government projects in the last 10 years. I am still practicing engineering, but primarily as an expert witness testifying in litigation matters. I let my personal and facility security clearances plus my AE personal service contracts expired many years ago.

I married Bonnie Marietta Easterly from Biloxi, Mississippi in 1982. She is a Houston Attorney specializing in Transactional Law (Stocks, Bonds, Securities, Business Contracts, White Collar Crime, and International Business). She formed her own eight Attorney Law firm in 1991 as The Spencer Law Firm (www.spencer-law.com).

Our daughter Ashley is a 29-year-old graduate of the University of Texas and Loyola law school. She is now a practicing Attorney at The Spencer Law Firm with Bonnie. She graduated from Lamar High School in Houston as an IB candidate with a 4.11 GPA.

My Son Jerry is a 25 year history graduate from Texas A&M. He is employed in the "Fast Food industry" waiting tables. Jerry & I used to go deer hunting in the Michigan Upper Peninsula (their deer are as big as our cows) and also prairie dog shooting (not hunting) in West Texas with 200-700 yd sharpshooter shots at these very small 6" high targets when standing. He is was a very competitive swimmer and captain of his High School Swim Team.

I am a licensed Airplane Pilot since 1970, licensed open wheel FV & FF racecar driver since 1978, Sky Diving Parachutist since 1959 at A&M, licensed AMA motorcycle racer since 1967. I designed, constructed, developed and drove 3 different open Wheel Formula V racecars. I drove as a professional open wheel racecar driver on two occasions (TROC with non-spectacular results). One of my VP's told me that I have done every stupid thing that anyone could think of.

After we got married, Bonnie told me that I had to find less dangerous hobbies if we were going to have any children because she did not want to raise any children alone as a widow. I had 3 open wheel racecars, 5 racing motorcycles, and one 6-place airplane when we got married. Bonnie got me to take French Cooking Lessons and I became a fairly acceptable French Chef (we ate much better but we both did gain some weight). My children are my hobby now. Children are the most wonderful things that anyone will ever have. Bonnie and I only regret that we did not create more than just the two that we love so dearly.
