1960 — 2013 - Obituary Condolences
James Matthew Speegle
May 3, 1960 - Sept. 29, 2013

James Matthew Speegle, 53, passed away suddenly at his home on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013. James was born May 3, 1960, in Woodland to Hazel and Joe Speegle. James lived his entire life in Winters. He worked for the Winters Fire Department as a maintenance man and a volunteer fireman in his early years and for the city of Winters on the city crew. In his later years James worked in construction.
James loved fishing and just hanging with his friends especially his good friends for Friday night pool on Adams Lane and Sunday football games on TV. He also loved spending time with his granddaughter Alexis reading stories and teaching her ABCs. When he wasn't feeling well the two of them just enjoyed sitting on the couch talking and watching Gunsmoke.
James had a sense of humor that was known by all. He absolutely loved to make people laugh and was always ready to play some kind of practical joke on anyone in his path. He will be missed dearly.
He leaves behind his wife of 34 years, Denise; daughter Lisa, son Frank; grandchildren Alexis and Robert; mother Hazel Speegle of Winters, brother Claude Speegle of Winters, Joe Speegle of Davis, and sister Kathy Speegle-Clark of Sacramento; as well as many nieces and nephews, and many good friends. Preceding him in death are his father Joseph Speegle, brothers John, Larry, and Gene; and nephew Eric.
At his request no services will be held. His family will celebrate his life together in quiet at a later date.
