The world has lost an incredible husband, father, and "Papa." He was a rare gem and, as anyone who he came in contact with knows, possessed a combination of kindness, integrity, commitment, loyalty and love that was simply magnetic. He was a role model in love and in life. His unwavering devotion to his loving wife, Maria, of 53 years and the life they built together under the most unlikely of circumstances was awe-inspiring. Just as inspiring was his trailblazing, four-decade career in finance culminating with an Obama Administration presidential appointment in the capacity of Chairman/CEO and Board member for the Farm Credit Administration over a six year term.
As his wife, Maria, says Ken was a "shining light" in so many lives. He will be missed immensely, but his amazing legacy will live on in our hearts. He is survived by his loving wife, Maria; daughters, Michelle Springs and Rochelle Puccia; son, Dr. Kenneth Spearman; grandchildren, Chelsy, Zoe, Alana and Zara; and sister, Jennifer Greene.
