Leroy Martin Trotter
October 13, 1949 – June 12, 2021
“Jack Rabbit/Bae Bae”
John 14: 1-3
“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
The fall trees were vibrant with leaves of gold, brown, and orange. There was just a hint of fall in the air, just a bit of crispness forecasting the advent of autumn: hunting wild game, baking sweet potatoes, picking up pecans in preparation for the winter to come. But, for Quickman, Sr. and Gladys Wells Trotter, none of the comforting sounds and smells of fall could compare to the elation they felt. On Thursday, October 13, 1949, in the small town of Holly Ridge, LA, a beautiful baby boy, the sixth one, in fact, was born. To make his advent more special was the fact that his great-grandmother, Josephine Oats, a well-known local midwife delivered this precious little boy in the home of his parents. He was given the name Leroy Martin Trotter. Five older siblings sat around nervously, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the “new baby.”Ocelene, Margie, Cora, Earnice, and Quickman, Jr. decided early that he would be called “Bae Bae” because he was the last to be born. As he grew a little older, he was given the nickname “Jack Rabbit” by his father because of his swift speed and ability to run from those spankings that he received for getting into trouble. He loved all of his siblings, but he truly admired his big brother, Quickman, Jr., and always wanted to follow him.
On June 12, 2021, in Houston, Texas, Leroy lost his battle with life. God, in His infinite wisdom, beckoned Leroy home. And, he answered!
