Obituary for Alfred "Allen" Junior Skeens, Jr.

Alfred Junior “Allen” Skeens, Jr., 46, of Poca, passed away peacefully Thursday, September 12, 2019, at his home.

Born January 19, 1973, in Tampa, Florida, he was the son of the late Alfred J. and Mildred Pauley Skeens, Sr.

Allen was an avid fisherman and he loved the outdoors. Most times, if you couldn’t find him, he was on the riverbank fishing. His favorite fish was catfish. He would sit for hours at a time just to catch even one fish. Allen would be there to help anyone that was in need: from fixing their vehicles; helping them move; or just needed a listening ear or a shoulder to cry on.

In addition to his parents, Allen is preceded in death by his brother Shawn L. Skeens.

He is survived by his fiancé Rebecca Scarberry of Poca; his children Shawn, James, Rebekah, Makayla, John Curtis, Timothy, and Andrew; his sister Gracie Hall (Joe); 2 nephews Joseph and Christopher Holstein; and his many friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations of sympathy may be made to Smathers Funeral Chapel, Inc., 675 Main Street, Rainelle, WV 25962, to help with the final expenses for Allen. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
