Ralph Harold Speck, Jr., age 43, of Jackson Township passed away unexpectedly May 15th, 2020. He is survived by his fiancé, and best friend of nearly 10 years, Lindsay Venham. Ralph had many interests in his life but nothing made him happier, and feel more completed, than the life he built with "Lin," as he affectionately called her. Their pups Niko, and Sniffs, made them a perfect family of four. He was preceded in death by his father, and friend, Ralph Harold Speck Sr. and sister, Elizabeth Ann (Lisa) Speck. He is survived by his bonus-mom, Debra Speck; sister, Georjette (Brian) Thomas: sister, Paula (Bob) Danish; nephew, Conner Danish; niece, Britt Danish; many relatives and friends. A private celebration of his life will take place at a later date. Notes of condolences can be sent to: Venham-Speck Families, 2800 S. Arlington Road #101, Akron, OH 44312

I had the pleasure of working with Ralph for several years and always enjoyed our conversations about literally anything. He was such an awesome human being that had the ability to lift anyone's spirit. I still can't process this news. My heart goes out to Lin and all of Ralph's family.

Ralph, we used to hypothesize about the great unknown. Ill See you, or not, on the other side my friend, so rest easy. To Ralphs family, and most especially Lindsay, my deepest, deepest sympathies are for you. I hope you never wonder how precious you were to Ralph, I know there was nothing on this planet more special to him. Ralph could fill with laughter as well as he could fill the Honda store fridge full of bottled water. Your friends at the dealership, each and every one of us, will miss you so...

So so sorry to hear this. I knew Ralph as a young boy and I recently ran into him at his place of work. We had a couple of laughs and I couldn't believe he was all grown up. It was a nice conversation and I saw him several more times. My genuine condolences go out to his family and his fiance'

What a tremendous loss. I worked with Ralph at Serra Honda. He always made me laugh. He had such a great sense of humor. We would sit and chat for a while about life and his love for his dogs and how much he loved to cook. My heart is broken As I am sure many other hearts are broken also. My heart goes out to his friends and family. Heaven gained another angel way too early.

LOVE you my dear brother ... you will be missed. You were a part of every family gathering, birthdays and celebrations. Your presence was always valued and enjoyed. Your sweet Lindsay (Lin, as you would affectionately call her) was your most valued possession and everyone knew it. This isnt an easy life and it has proven to be extra hard for you. We were always in your corner and will remain in Lins because we know you would want that. Rest with Daddy ... hug the others, get to know your sister Lisa. YOU ARE LOVED❤
