Dennis Lee Speight

December 25, 2021

Dennis L. Speight, 73, of Harbinger NC passed away at his Harbinger, NC home December 25, 2021. Dennis was a kind and generous man with a big heart and a great sense of humor.

A decorated United States Veteran- Dennis served his country proudly in the US Marine Corps during the Vietnam War Era. After his military service Dennis became an electrical contractor and eventually went to work for the Town of Kitty Hawk as the Town Building Inspector- the position he retired from.

Dennis played softball in his younger days and enjoyed bowling, pool, and of course watching the Redskins play football. He also had a beautiful singing voice and sang with a quartet for some time.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents Talmage and Laura Speight, his two brothers, Eddie Speight and Gary Speight, as well as his daughter, Elizabeth Rene Speight, and her unborn child, Jaqueline.

Dennis leaves his loving wife, Bonnie Speight; his two daughters, Ashley Speight and Leah Speight Folkes (Jason); as well as his grandchildren Gavin, Natasha, Ariyah, and Nyla. Dennis was very much loved and will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

The memorial service with military honors will be held graveside at Powells Point Christian Church Cemetery Friday, December 31, 2021 at 2 O’clock pm. Pastor Dan Bergey will officiate.
