Richard J. Little
WILMINGTON- Richard James Little, 76, died Wednesday, January 15, surrounded by his family at his home on Ray Hill Road. He was born February 27, 1943, to Richard I. Little and Doris (Flushing) Little in Queens, NY.
Mr. Little grew up in Malverne, NY. After high school he joined the US Air Force and was a member of the missile combat crew. After four years in the Air Force, he and his wife, Catrionia, moved to Vermont with their daughters, Tracy and Jennifer.
Mr. Little had many different careers before becoming a real estate broker for Greenspring of Vermont, some of which included being a US postal worker, builder, and MOOver driver. He also had a love for many activities, which he always gave 100% to, including golfing, fishing, woodworking, running (he was in a marathon), yoga, waterskiing, and especially photography.
He married Katy (Bennert) in 1992 and they established their home in Wilmington. They eventually bought a camp on Lake Parker in West Glover, where they enjoyed being with family and friends over the years.
Mr. Little was a great father and grandfather. He will be truly missed, along with his great sense of humor. He leaves behind his wife of 28 years, Katy; daughter Tracy Little; daughter Jennifer and her husband Tim Graves; stepson Trevor and his wife Caryn Adams; stepdaughter Story Adams; sister Pat Little and her husband Steve Richter; brother Bill Little and his wife Maureen; brother Joe Little and his wife Ann; grandchildren Isabella Graves, Daniel Little, and Jaxon and Parker Adams; his loving dog Dixie Day and granddog Lainey (whom he endearingly nicknamed “Meatloaf”); and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister Katherine Little.
A memorial service will be planned in the springtime.
