Bruce Hoy Speckman, 62 of Greenwood, Indiana passed away Wednesday, August 29 surrounded by loved ones after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
The eldest of three boys, Bruce was born February 3, 1956 in Miami, Florida to Franklin Lewis Speckman and the late Darlene Pritchard Speckman. Upon graduation from Broad Ripple High School in 1974, Bruce joined his father as a sales representative for Herald (Independent) Life Insurance Company. Bruce later worked for Karstadt-Reed before retiring to care for his now dearly departed mother-in-law, Mary Mitchell. Bruce was a kind and generous man who found great joy in spending time with his family and friends. He also loved the many pets he nurtured through the years; most recently his dogs, Paco and Winston. Bruce had a passion for music, hitting the road on his Harley Davidson, cruising in Lucy, his red Corvette, fishing, hunting, vacationing in Florida, and the Indianapolis Colts.
Bruce will be sorely missed by the love of his life, Darlene Mitchell Speckman, his wife of 34 years; son, Terry Guess; daughters, Jennifer Speckman Goad and Amber Platt Staten; grandchildren, Nicholas, Ryan, Savannah and Andrew. Also left to honor Bruce are his father, Franklin (Carolyn); brothers, Wayne (Stephanie) and Dale (Shelly); brother-in-law, Kenny (Lisa) Mitchell; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Bruce was preceded in death by his dear mother, grandparents, and mother and father in law.
A celebration of Bruce’s life, officiated by House of Victory’s Reverend Eddie Carr, will be held at Northside Baptist Church, 3021 East 71st Street, Indianapolis, on Saturday, September 8 at 4:00 p.m. Friends and family may call from 2:00 p.m. until the time of service.

The family also wishes to thank Kindred Hospice nurses, Rita, Amanda, and John for their loving kindness, compassion, and support during Bruce’s time of need.
