He is survived by his wife, Norma “Jean” (Valenti) Specht; sisters, Mariann McKinley, Kathryn Sackett and Susan and Dennis McDonald, all of Conneaut; brothers, Paul and Joyce Specht of Conneaut, Richard and Kathy Specht of Conneaut and Robert Specht of Richmond, Va.; grandchildren, Blaine and Jessica Partee of Ovitio, Fla.; and a great-grandchild, Zoe Partee; and several nieces and nephews.
