Mr. Spears was a lifelong resident of Lake Charles and a graduate of Barbe High School. He worked nearly thirty years as an Electrician, having been employed by Montgomery Electric and LA Solaray. He was grateful to Perry Vincent of Solaray, a friend since early childhood, for introducing him to the latest technology of Solar Power, as he had completed the training and was enjoying the challenge. Hal took great pride in the craft and quality of his work. He also enjoyed friends, fishing and music. His greatest love was his children. He was a member of the First United Pentecostal Church.

Mr. Spears will be most remembered for his personality and the "nick names" he assigned to all his family and close friends.

To his children, he will always be their "Hero". He leaves to honor his memory, one son, Houston Logan Spears and fiance' Megan of Lake Charles; one daughter, Alexandra Lei Spears of Westlake; one brother, Robert "Bobby" Spears and wife Angela of Lake Charles; two sisters, Gayle Istre and husband Danny of Lake Charles and Alice Joy Parr and husband Michael of Moss Bluff; his best friend, Jerry Graham of Toledo Bend and thirty two nieces and nephews.

Memories Timeline


  1. Although as we grew up we also grew apart, Hal was a wonderful 'couzin in crime'. A few of us would always go running around at family gatherings, exploring our world around us such as train depots, boxcars, trees, etc. I have fond memories of those childhood adventures. I knew Hal would not let anything happen to me or anyone else playing with us. He was a protective, kind, fun loving person who left this world too soon.

  2. I am thankful to have shared some of the best years of my life with Hal. He was my first love and we shared a son (Logan). Many good memories that I will cherish forever. Hal was unique,very humble and soft spoken. You don't find those qualities in many people. I was blessed to have him in my life. I pray for peace for all of the family for we have lost a very special person.

  3. I first met Hal when we were both visiting in Austin. He asked me out and we went out every night until we both returned to Louisiana. I was 15 and he was 17. He had to drive three hours to see me in North Louisiana and his Dad, not liking him having a girl friend so far away, told him he was overlooking an orchid (some girl in the Lake Charles church) while looking for a rose. Hal, always one for nick-names, started referring to me as the Rose. Through the years, he became my best friend and soul mate. I am blessed to have had such a rare and beautiful friendship. Hal, I will never forget you and will love you always! You were such a gentle soul and I treasure all the memories. I can hardly imagine life without you but I know you are in a wonderful place and I will see you again.

  4. Jonathan, Shae I will miss you so very much, Hal. You will always be in our hearts and thoughts. Thanks for all of the great memories. Alex, we are sooo very sorry for this terrible loss. Your daddy loved you and Logan very very much ! Our prayers are with you all!

  5. Of all the people I grew up with, Hal was the most lovable, fun, and unique person. He was my closest friend in high school. We did everything together, hunt, fish, chase girls, laugh, and fight. I have lost a great friend, and brother. He is already missed by many, especialy me. I still remember like it was yesterday, the night we graduated. We dumped two boxes of tide detergent into the fountains at Lake Side Bank. Soaps and suds went everywhere, we were proud of our acomplishment, the Amreican Press thought otherwise. I am praying for the Spears family, i would just like to say I love you all.

  6. Please remember that we are praying for all the family. The Gaudet cousins want you to know we are thinking of you.

  7. RIP my brother, the hardest part is over. You will be missed. Casey and I enjoyed being a part of your life. God bless your family in this time of need. Say hello to Tc conner for us.
