Roy Skeeter Little
Roy R. "Skeeter" Little, II

June 30, 1965 to August 7, 2015

Roy R. Little II was born June 30, 1965 and his name was “Skeeter”.  He lived as Skeeter.

He is preceded in death by his father, Roy R. Little and his mother, Jenaris Ann Hamilton.

He is survived by his only child: Austin Levi Little of Abilene, TX; his sister:  Toni K. Bilbrey of Odessa, TX; and too many extended family members and friends to mention.

He was a mechanic for most of his life, even after the loss of both legs.  He had a brief stint as a DJ in several clubs around the Texas area.

His son, Levi, was the light of his life.  Skeeter lived life on his own terms and didn’t care what anyone thought.  If you needed anything, he would give you the shirt off of his back.  He was definitely a diamond in the rough.

He will be missed by many.  He is whole and happy again.

Memorial services will be at 6:00 pm at Acres West Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, August 11, 2015.  Immediately after services, a party will be held at his home to celebrate his life.
