1977 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
LittellJuly 24, 1977 - Oct. 31, 2017 PORTLAND, OR Boyd Alexander Gee Littell, the musical legend, of Norman, OK, died in a bicycle accident in Portland, OR. Boyd Gee was born July 24, 1977, lived three persons' lifetimes-worth and died on Oct. 31, 2017, at the age of 40. Boyd Littell led a life that was full of surprises. As the youngest of four children, the announcement of his impending arrival was a surprise to his siblings, who had varied reactions. As a toddler, he surprised his family repeatedly in his high chair with his precocious drumming and amazingly accurate impersonation of The Incredible Hulk. During his early teen years, Gee, so called by his family, began to surprise the community with his natural musical talents and his amazing passion for perfecting his gift. Then, as a teen and young adult, he surprised friends, co-workers and musical colleagues with his tender compassion of others, his sincere gratitude for life's joys and the fact that he never exhibited cruelty -- to anyone -- ever. And then, he surprised us all by leaving suddenly and too soon. No list can express the talent, humor, commitment and love Boyd Gee had for his friends and his music but here are the bands he was a member of, created, or got kicked out of, in no particular order: ADDverse Effects, The Ills, Mama Sweet, Stereo Pimp, Scabby Itchens, Skinphonia, Pidgin, Thumper, Deluxe Vortex, Rat Bastard and Electric Ass, Conjunto Clave, The Method, The Projects, Blues Man/ Blues Devil, Tao Chemical, Circus Midgets, Tritones, Tincture, Blue Light Special, and Lord High Octane & the Kam Shaft Kings. Boyd was preceded in death by his father, Robert Dale Littell; and his brother, Paul Hatcher Littell. Surviving immediate family members include his mother, Jaquine Hudson Bly; and his sisters, Susan Binkley Greer and Morgan Binkley Rogers. Boyd came from a large family; survivors include aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. The gathering to celebrate his life will be held on Friday, Nov. 24, 2017, at 2 p.m. at The Main Street Event Center in Norman. Part Two of the celebration will be held at the Deli, 7-10 p.m. Please feel free to bring your pictures, videos, recordings, artwork and stories to share. A site has been created in memory of Boyd Littell on youcaring.com to help the family with the expenses of bringing our loved one home.
