Al, safe in the arms of his savior, entered his eternal home on the twenty-ninth of September two thousand and fifteen. His memory is carried on by his beloved wife of sixty years, Marie; sons, Jonathan of Garysburg, NC and Daniel (wife Marcie) of Belmont, NC; and his dear grandchildren, Daniel II and Lindsey (husband Chase), along with numerous nieces and nephews. Preceding him in death were his parents, V.L. Little Sr. and Lizzie D. Little; his sister, Mary L. Whitfield and his brothers, V.L. Little Jr. and James E. Little Sr. A native of Northampton County, a 1954 graduate of Seaboard High School, he proudly served his country as a member of the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army achieving the ranking of expert marksman on the pistol squad. Al’s legacy of perpetual optimism, genuine kindness, and living each day fully and intentionally will live on in the hearts of his family and friends whom he has blessed immeasurably. Our lives continue into the mystery of what is to come but we are cheerful and encouraged knowing we will all see you again soon.
