He was employed at (the former) Hardees Restaurant in Welch as a cook.  Speedy was known as a "people person," as he never met a stranger.  His joy in life was to help others.  He was a very good cook and he enjoyed gardening and was known to have a "green thumb" for growing both flowers and plants.  He loved gospel music, singing and praising God.
