August 15, 1936 - October 17, 2019
Warren Speck, age 83, a lifelong resident of Moosic and Old Forge, passed away Thursday evening at Regional Hospital of Scranton, after a sudden illness. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 37 years, Bertha B. (Howell) Speck, who died on October 8, 1998.
Born on August 15, 1936, and raised in Moosic, Warren was the son of the late Samuel and Annabelle Johnson Speck. For an amazing fifty years prior to his retirement, he worked as baker for Agostini’s Bakery in Old Forge. His relentless work ethic extended beyond the bakery as he also ran his own local grass cutting business for many years.
The amazing father of seven children, his work ethic ensured his children would want for nothing and he wanted nothing more than to spend time with his loved ones. He will be forever missed by family and friends.
He was a lifelong member of the Moosic Assembly of God Church.
He is survived by his seven children, Bertha Liszewski and husband Dan of Moosic, Betty Smith and husband Bob of Pittston, Nancy Willams and husband Archie of Duryea, Warren Speck, Jr. of Moosic, Wesley Speck and wife Elizabeth of Trucksville, Louis Speck and wife Suzanne (Suzie) of West Pittston and Dan Speck and wife Kathleen of Scranton; his sister, Patricia Lewis of Pittston; nineteen grandchildren; nineteen great grandchildren; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; nieces, nephews and cousins.
A daughter-in-law, Liza Speck; and three granddaughters, also preceded him in death.
Funeral services are scheduled for Monday at 10:00AM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, to be celebrated by Rev. David O’Brien. Burial will follow at Marcy Cemetery in Duryea.
Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Sunday between 4-7:00PM at the funeral home.
