He was a member of Union Hill Baptist Church.

He had an extended family of friends at the Tennessee River in the Cuba Landing community in Humphreys County that he was very close to.

He had many close friends he had worked with since the sixties at DuPont, Reemay, Fiberweb and Berry Global.

He volunteered for Metro since 1969 in Civil Defense, which is now the Nashville Office of Emergency Management (OEM). He was dedicated to his service and to his fellow volunteers.

When he was not at the plant or on-call with OEM, he could likely be found somewhere on a tractor.

A graveside service and celebration of life will be held at a later date in the Cummings family cemetery.

Nashville Cremation Center is honored to be entrusted with handling Mr. Speights's arrangements. Please visit his guestbook to leave a thoughtful note for the family.
