Alvin Napier Locke Jr, known affectionately as Alvin Jr, was a man who valued family above all else. Born on August 31, 1961, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, he lived a life dedicated to love and connection.

From a young age, it was clear that Alvin had a deep sense of commitment to his loved ones. He cherished every opportunity to be surrounded by his family and drew immense joy from their presence. His warm smile and infectious laughter created an atmosphere of love and camaraderie wherever he went.

Alvin embarked on his educational journey through Lincoln Elementary, Capitol Hill Middle School, and Southeast High School. While academics were important to him, it was clear that his heart belonged to music and dance. Nothing brought him more delight than grooving to the rhythm of his favorite tunes or showcasing his impressive dance moves. His passion for music and dance brought happiness not only to himself but also to everyone lucky enough to witness his talents.

Throughout his life, Alvin remained grounded and deeply connected to his roots. His bond with his mother Bennie Ruth Gates Clark and his bond with his baby sister Kandice, was unwavering. Alvin Jr's brothers, Alton D. Locke and Tony Locke stood by him as pillars of strength through joyous moments and trying times.

As much as Alvin cherished the memories of those who came before him, he also treasured the relationships he built with surviving family members and friends who helped along the way. His siblings Sylvia Locke, Sonya Locke, Dionne Watkins and Kandice Locke stood beside him as companions on life's journey. In addition to them, Alvin leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends who will forever cherish the moments they shared together.

Alvin Napier Locke Jr's life was characterized by his unwavering dedication to his family and the love and laughter he brought to each cherished moment. His memory lives on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known him. Alvin Jr's legacy reminds us all of the importance of love, kinship, and the joy found within the embrace of family.
