Speedy was born September 11, 1946 in Ingram to parents, Charles H. Switzer, Jr. and Vida Mae Lane. His dad died when Speedy was 9 months old, and he was raised by his Switzer grandparents. Upon their passing, his two aunts took him into their care at ages 16-17. Speedy worked in road construction until he started his own business in 1984.
