November 22, 2005

Michael Little Fellow Locklear, a Maryland highway worker, died Wednesday at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Del., after falling from an elevated bucket on a State Highway Administration truck while fixing a road sign in Cecil County. He was 45 and lived in Northeast Baltimore.

Born Mickael Little Fellow Locklear in Baltimore and raised in Highlandtown, he was a Lumbee Indian. He attended Patterson High School before earning his General Educational Development diploma.

He worked at a computer business, Singer-Link in Beltsville, before joining the SHA 12 years ago. A highway technician, he worked with signs and traffic signals and was based in Hanover.

"He was known throughout Hamilton for the long walks he took most every day with George, his Rottweiler and Labrador mix," said his partner of 25 years, Robert O'Neill, a customer service manager for Allied Office Products. "He also loved working for his church and spending time with its youth group."

Services for Mr. Locklear were held Sunday at South Broadway Baptist Church in Fells Point, where he had been an active member for many years.

He also is survived by his parents, James and Virginia Locklear of Baltimore; a brother, John Locklear of Baltimore; and two sisters, Gail Curtis of Baltimore and Jennifer Locklear of Hanover.
