Devon was born on October 8, 1993, in Mission Viejo, California, son of Kathleen McGinn and David Spreen. He was a 2012 graduate of Bettendorf High School where he was an all-state defensive tackle in 2011 and went on to play football at St. Ambrose University. Devon was also an avid skier, appearing in Sports Illustrated for Kids Snow Search when he was 13 and competed in national competitions.

Whatever Devon did, he went all out doing it. He had a generous spirit and would give you the shirt off his back, if you needed it. Devon enjoyed four wheeling with friends, riding jet skis in Miami, and more recently developed a love for classic trucks.

Devon had a tremendous work ethic and devotion to landscape, which led him to start his own company, Blackbird Landscape. Devon recently grew his business to include ownership of Suburban Landscape.

Those left to cherish Devon’s memory include his spouse, Alexis O’Callaghan and their beautiful sons, David Isaac and Shawn Michael; mother, Kathleen McGinn, stepfather, Monty Mitchell, all of Bettendorf; brother, Hunter Spreen and Rollie, Davenport; father-in-law, Shawn O’Callaghan, Port Byron, Illinois; and stepbrother, Tyler Mitchell, Bettendorf; niece Ava Chesney; and countless other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, David Spreen, and best friend, Jeremiah Martinez.
