Martin Lee Speck of Middlefield, Ohio formerly of Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully on October 29, 2020 at the age of 86.
Born December 1, 1933, he is survived by his wife Jeanne Speck (nee Shope), with whom he enjoyed 65 years of marriage.
Lee lived in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania and attended Huntingdon Area High School and then entered the United States Army during the Korean War. He returned home and married Jeanne before attending Juniata College, where he received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Accounting.
He worked at Huntingdon Machine Company, starting off as a comptroller and later becoming Plant Manager. In retirement he worked at John R. Wald in accounting.
He was very active in the Huntingdon community, a member of the Huntingdon Presbyterian Church and a former trustee as well as a member of the Jaycees, Rotary and United Way. He was an active member of the Huntingdon Country Club where he and his wife spent a lot of time on the golf course, with Jeanne usually winning!
He was a skilled handyman who always had a project going on around the house, and he loved restoring antique cars. He had a 1968 Mustang convertible that was his pride and joy. He also enjoyed spending time at the Jersey Shore and using his metal detector to hunt for treasure. An avid football fan, he was a Penn State season ticket holder for 20 years and never missed his son-in-law or grandsons high school games.
In addition to his wife he is also survived by his daughter Lee Anne of Chagrin Falls, Ohio and two loving grandsons Frederick “Fritz” (Kelia) and Konrad “Kurt” Stueber, his brother Thomas C. Speck (Mary) of Mill Creek, Pennsylvania. He was preceded in death by his parents C. Lex (Dorothy) Speck, Thelma (Hileman) Rupe, his son-in-law Gerry Stueber and his brother Donald Speck.
