Mike was born in Alexander City, Alabama, lived in various cities throughout the south as a child, and graduated from Vigor High School in Mobile, Alabama in 1959. After marrying in 1963, Mike began life with his sweetheart in Auburn, Alabama where he later graduated in 1967 with a degree in civil engineering from Auburn University. Mike began his professional career at PolyEngineering in Mobile where he worked for six years. In 1973 Mike opened his own business, Mikell D. Speaks & Associates, which he served as president for 27 years and worked as a consultant until he passed. Mike was a devoted church member of Cottage Hill Baptist Church and Luke 4:18 Fellowship in Mobile, where he served as chairman of deacons, building chairman and sunday school teacher. At the end of his life, Mike was a faithful member of First Baptist Church Opelika. Mike was known by all for his love and service to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This was evident in how he conducted buisness, his commitment to his many friends and most of all, his devotion to his wife and family.

His passions included time at the beach, Suduko puzzles, eating seafood, all things related to Auburn, spending time with his grandchildren.
