Obituary for Roy Arden Speckhard

Roy Arden Speckhard, 85, passed away peacefully on January 26th, 2021 at his home in Hollis, NH with his beloved wife Patricia by his side. Roy was born on June 19th, 1935 in River Forest, IL to the late Herman John and Frieda Josephine Speckhard.

Roy loved the Lord, his wife, his family and his community. As the oldest of six and the son of parochial schoolteachers, he developed a servant’s heart and was always attentive to those around him. He majored in Political Science at Valparaiso University where he met his wife Patricia while performing in a play that she was directing. They went on to be married 57 years and continued their love of the theater, together writing and directing years of Christmas pageants for their church which were later published as a collection. He was a longtime member, elder, and greeter at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Albany, NY before moving to NH and joining Grace Lutheran in Nashua. He could often be found reading his Bible, studying his devotionals or taking notes for his long worked on book. A heart for politics and community, Roy was a professor of Political Science at Empire State College and spent 20 years in public service as Town Councilman, Deputy Supervisor, and Supervisor for his hometown of Clifton Park, NY. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his wife and family. Whether in their yearly trips to Cape Cod or barbecuing at home, Roy was a loving husband, father and grandfather. He will be greatly missed.

He was predeceased by infant daughter Robin, brother Joel, sister Sara and sister-in-law Vicki. He is survived by his wife Patricia; brothers Stan (Mary Davie), John (Norma) and Don; sons Christopher (Sarah), Andrew, Jesse (Deborah) and Benjamin (Nicole); grandchildren Rachael, Ryan, Mariana, Logan, Holly and Paul; and many nieces and nephews.

SERVICES: A private service will be held for the family. The DAVIS FUNERAL HOME, One Lock St., Nashua has been placed in charge of arrangements. An online guest book is available at, (603-883-3401) “ONE MEMORY LIGHTS ANOTHER”.
