Edwin (Ned) Raymond Speake III, age 85 of Rehoboth Beach, DE died peacefully at his home on January 21, 2019. Born on June 18, 1933 in Washington D.C., he was the son of the late Edwin R Speake II and Grace E (Foley) Speake. Ned earned a degree from Montgomery Junior College and attended American University. His profession was Cost Accounting and he was employed by Vitro, Honeywell and NASA (Goddard Space Flight Center and Headquarters) where he retired in 1988. Ned combined his love for the ocean and his country by serving in the US Coast Guard from 1953-1957. It was in Rehoboth Beach, DE, when working summer jobs (dipping ice cream at Snyder’s and a stock boy at A&P), that he began a 60 year friendship with his wife, Lois E (Glindemann) Speake. They were married 53 years until Lois passed away almost 9 years ago. They raised their family in Scaggsville, Maryland. He was active in the community coaching and umpiring for Atholton Youth Recreation Association Baseball and was on the founding board of Hammond Park Recreation Association. He was also active in his churches. Ned loved fishing whether it was in a pond as a young boy, along the surf or in his boat, Jillo, with family and friends. He enjoyed grilling out for his family especially in the back yard of the cabin along the banks of the Rehoboth-Lewes Canal, happy hours, and playing poker. Ned loved his family dearly and is survived by his children, Dr Mark R. Speake and Liz of Lewisburg, PA and Jill E. Horn and David of Westminster, MD; siblings Tim and Dianne Speake and Linda and Jerry Waggoner; Grandchildren: Sarah and Bryce Livingston, Gregory and Emily Speake, Bryan Speake, Katherine Horn, and Emily Horn.
