Elvin Edward Spears, Sr., the oldest of three children blessed the union of Willie and Lillie V. Spears on March 16, 1934 in Monroe, La. Willie Mary Donaldson, Alvin Spears and parents all proceeded him in death. Being spiritually nurtured in a Christian family, Elvin accepted Christ and was a member of the MT. Nebo Baptist Church where he served as “Chairman of the Board of Officers”. He attended and graduated from Monroe Colored High School and matriculated at Southern University where he received his bachelor’s degree. During his High School and College years he was a member of the football team and still holds a record today. Because of his quick speed, they called him “Rocket 88” and “The Mole”. He was first employed in Richland Parish as a coach and teacher. Later he moved on to Boley Jr. High, Richardson High and West Monroe High School. From these schools he gained the names: “Chief”, “Coach” and “Teach”. After a short retirement with Ouachita Parish, he joined the staff at Carroll High School. When he finally gave up coaching, he started teaching Driver’s Education for Monroe City Schools. Elvin departed this life on Thursday, February 7th at his home surrounded by his wife, son and daughter-in-law. His memory and legacy will forever be in the hearts of his wife, Maydell B.
