William Leroy O'Neal

February 6, 1960 — August 26, 2022

William Leroy O’Neal (Wee Wee) was born to the proud parents of Robert O’Neal and Faye O’Neal (who preceded him in death) on February 6, 1960 in Los Angeles, CA. He was the fifth child born of ten wonderful siblings. Growing up, William attended Graham Elementary School and Huntington Park High School in Los Angeles. He accepted Christ at an early age. Growing up as kids, the O’Neal siblings had the best of times. Wee Wee was a part of the dance group they created called “The O’Neal Kids” that mimic the moves and sounds of The Jacksons. Wee Wee loved growing up on Grape Street where he knew everybody in the neighborhood all of whom still remember him to this day. His favorite color was Red and he loved him some Fried Chicken. He was so smart. When he was a child he loved to play in his father’s car pretending to drive it. Well, it paid off because he learned how to drive and never had a diving lesson in his life! His joyful infectious smile could be seen miles away and he would end every sentence with the “yep yep!” William held several jobs. From a General maintenance worker, to a cleaner with a cleaning agency, but cooking was always been his first love. He cooked at many restaurants in and around the L.A. area. On August 26, 2022 his journey ended on earth and he began his journey into eternal life where he greeted into the heavenly gates by his Mother, Faye O’Neal, Brother, Robert O’Neal, Jr., and niece, Freida “Tute” Jones. William leaves to cherish his memory his father, Robert O’Neal Sr. (Bakersfield, CA), Daughters: Shameka Roberts (San Antonio, TX), and Willow O’Neal (Bakersfield, CA), Son William O’Neal, Jr., Son in Law, Mason Roberts (San Antonio, TX), Two Granddaughters: Jayda Herod and Jenaye Herod.
