We Remember


April 23, 1984 — November 20, 2020

Spencer was born in Whitecourt, Alberta to Diane Roy and Roland Belcourt on April 23, 1984, and passed away on November 20, 2020 in Kelowna, BC.

Spencer and his mother relocated to Lac La Biche, AB in 1987 where he was welcomed into a large and loving family, the McDonald’s, who all considered him as true kin. For this, Spencer was truly blessed and grateful.

Spencer attended school in Lac La Biche where he made many lifelong friends. Growing up, he enjoyed many things including rodeo, boxing, football and cycling. He loved the outdoors, especially building forts and exploring new places. He was most comfortable in the forest.

In 2006, Spencer became a young father to his beautiful daughter, Ariana.  He was a devoted father, and did all he could to provide Ariana with a happy life.

In 2007, Spencer moved to Kelowna with Ariana. His passion for the outdoors led him to pursue an education in Environmental Sciences. He graduated this past winter and earned a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of British Colombia’s Okanagan Campus.

Spencer is survived by his daughter Ariana; his mother, Diane Roy; father Roland Belcourt; stepfather Vern McDonald; sisters Raegan Sandy (Joseph) and Caitlin Cardinal (Trevor); nephews William, Kanin and Kaleb; grandparents James and Lillian McDonald; girlfriend Emily Dean; and many aunts, uncles and cousins; as well as many friends whose lives he crossed paths with throughout his short journey. Honourable mention to his loyal dog, Louie.

Spencer touched the lives of many people with his charisma, his talent of story-telling, the ability to make people laugh, his generous heart, his willingness to listen and the interest he displayed with everyone he met.

He will be greatly missed by his family and the many friends he touched with his spirituality, strength, and willingness to put himself aside to help anyone who needed comforting.

A Funeral Service will be held to honour for Spencer, due to the current pandemic restrictions it will be by invitation only. However, the family would like to invite all who want to pay their respects to join by livestream on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at 1:00 pm (PST). (See Below)
