Kevin Wesley Speier
Kevin Wesley Speier was born in Santa Barbara on April 26, 1983 and departed this life on February 15, 2017. He attended Isla Vista School, Ellwood Elementary, Goleta Valley Junior High, and Dos Pueblos High School and received his Bachelors degree from Cal Poly San Luis in Bio Medical Sciences.
Kevin was active in sports at Goleta Boys and Girls club and Dos Pueblos little league. He played both baseball and football at Dos Pueblos High School. He owned a water business in town and completed the Nursing Program at SBCC.
He married Angelina Mamey on Sept. 19, 2009 and have two children together, Jase Daniel (4) and Alina Grace (2). Kevin’s family all lives here in the Santa Barbara area.
Along with his wife and children, Kevin is survived by his grandmother Marceen, parents Fr. Nicholas and Jan, his brothers Scott (wife Terri), Craig (wife Jenny) and his sister Christie (husband Chris Robinson) and his 13 nieces and nephews.
We are sad that we have to see our beloved Kevin pass from this life after a year and a half courageous fight against cancer. But are comforted that he is at a place of rest where the presence of Christ his Savior and the holy ones gone before him are surrounding him. We are blessed to have him with us in spirit.
Both Kevin and his wife Angel have taught us much on this sacred journey: How to stand in a time that demands long suffering, how to hope and find comfort in God, friends and family, how to be grateful recipients of prayers and blessings from others, how to have faith that all things can work for good. Finally, how to love each other… no matter what.
