Johnny was a true friend, a great person, but most importantly he was a true Christian. He loved the Lord more than life itself. He loved his wife Mary and children and was a wonderful husband and father to them. We will greatly miss him everyday.
Johnny was my friend and I am sorry for his passing. I wish I could come to the funeral, but I live in Texas now.
My condolences to John Little’s family. He was a former fellow coworker at Teledyne Continental Motors. May God’s continual strength, comfort and healing of the family’s hearts be felt daily as they reflect on blessed memories.
My condolences to Johnny Little’s family and friends. I was a safety investigator and he was instrumental in the Analytical Department at Teledyne Continental Motors, which helped in finding the facts during investigations. Johnny had a treasure trove of experience in engines and was a great contributor to safety. His work may be imitated but never duplicated. Thank you for sharing Johnny with us over the years as his numerous positive effects in safety will always remain.
Mary Alice and Family I am truly sorry for your loss, Praying fo you.
