Bob Little

Obituary of Bob Little

Bob Little was known by many as a man with a huge heart who would help anyone in need in any way he could. Anywhere he went, he ran into someone he knew and would greet them with warmth and kindness. He lived his life for his family and would do anything for his wife, children, and grandson. He coached softball for many years and inspired a love of the game in so many. He was very active in his son’s Boy Scout troop and went out of his way to help the boys see the value in everything they were learning. He loved camping and was known for his extravagant meals cooked over the fire. While he made his career as a bus mechanic, his real passion was wheeling and dealing. He always sought out potential projects and had plenty of help from his friends and brothers. Some of his favorite times were working in his garage with those he loved. He spent many a Tuesday night at the Variety Club Cruise Nights, where he was proud to help fundraise for a cause dear to him. He was also an active member of the Sons of American Legion Post 735. He loved to help anyone in any way he could, and in turn, made such a positive impact on everyone he encountered. He meant so much to so many people and will be missed tremendously.
