Tribute & Message From The Family

Brantly A. Speet age 28, of Holland, died Tuesday, December 4, 2018.

He was a 2009 graduate of Hamilton High School and was the manager of Fast Track Car Wash and Detailing for 10 years where he greeted everyone with a smile, while working daily with his father.

His faith in Jesus runs deep and he was quick to point out God's love for all people. He loved riding his Harley's and would give freely to anyone and include everyone without being asked. In his spare time, he completed many shop projects with dad and friends, ranging from motorcycles, dune buggies and an army truck. He has a strong passion for music and enjoyed sharing it. His unique laugh and smile are highly contagious. Brantly is a loyal, selfless, loving, kind, and pure hearted person. Once you have crossed paths with him, you'll never forget him. He brings great joy to his family and friends. Brantly will always have a proud brother and parents.

Brantly is survived by his father, Phil and Wendy Speet of Holland; brother, Phillip Speet of Holland; mother, Teresa and Tom Hayes of MN; several step siblings; grandparents, Anthony "Tony" and Hester Speet and Earl and Arlene Welling all of Holland; many aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Amy Covell and Max Argo.

Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Monday, December 10, 2018 at Engedi Church, 710 Chicago Dr. Holland. Visitation will be 2-6 Sunday, December 9, at Langeland-Sterenberg Funeral Home, 315 E. 16th St. Holland. Memorial contributions may be given to Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan / be nice, 349 Division Ave S, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I knew Brantly from the car wash, I went there often and he also detailed my car more than once. He always did such a great job. He was so friendly and so nice, what a great guy! I was sad to see the car wash sell, but happy when he was still working there after that. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
