William Lee Skaggs

William Lee Skaggs was born on December 31, 1963 in Los Angeles, CA to Robert and Linda Skaggs and passed away November 23, 2020 in Bakersfield, CA.  The family decided to move from the hustle and bustle of the big city and settled in Bakersfield in 1978.  It was here that Willie began his career as a truck driver at the age of 25 which would span over the next 30 years.  

He is survived by his 5 children; Billy and Stephanie Skaggs, Emily Skaggs (Gabriel), Megan Skaggs, Dorian Skaggs, and Drake Skaggs, 9 grandchildren, 2 brothers, 3 sisters, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.  Willie was preceded in death by his parents, 3 brothers and 1 sister.

He was very much loved by his family and friends and will be dearly missed.

Will was always a very good friend. He was there for me thru some rough times in my life. He always made time for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on. He would listen to me when I needed to talk. Then when I was done talking he would tell me to be strong and "Don't sweat the small s#%t ". and "Life is too short to hold a grudge". He always made me feel better especially when he would give me one of his big ol' bear hugs! He will be missed very much. Condolences to his family. We all loved him a lot. .
