Chad Richmond Little, 62, of County Road MM, Suomi Location, passed away at home Tuesday evening, April 9, 2019.

Chad was born May 11, 1956 in Flint to Dallas E. and Arlene E. (Richmond) Little, graduated from Negaunee High School, Class of 1974 and was a lifelong Suomi Location resident. Following graduation, he was employed by CCI for 13 years, starting at the Pioneer Pellet Plant and then at the Tilden Mine. He then began his 25 year career as a corrections officer at the Marquette Branch Prison, retiring in 2011.

Chad was united in marriage to Lynne Williams on August 21, 1976 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Negaunee and together they raised two sons, Chad and Gary. He was a member of the Little Lake American Legion.

In his free time, Chad enjoyed being outdoors; hunting, side-by-side riding, cutting wood, taking saunas, boating and being around the bon fire. Most of all, he loved being with his family, especially his beloved grandchildren, at the family camp on Pike Lake. He was a selfless volunteer and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need.

Surviving are his loving wife, Lynne; two sons, Chad (Jody) Little of Suomi Location and Gary (Stefanie) Little of Marquette; his grandchildren: Collin and Kortney Little, and Nash, Beau, Dane and Bryn Little; his brother, Scott (Bonnie) Little of Suomi Location; his sister, Carole (Phil) Nelson of St. Paul, MN; father-in-law, Russell Williams of Negaunee; brothers-in-law, Scott Williams of Gwinn and Kurt (Donna) Williams of Suomi Location; Jerry Stebbins of Florida; nieces and nephews: Christi (David) Etelamaki, Amy (Bruce) Cram, Jeff (Joye) Stebbins, Jill (Jim) Alecci, Jim (Gwen) Stebbins, Michelle (Tim) Stuck and Tory (Jeanette) Nelson. He was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Janice Stebbins; and his mother-in-law, Connie Williams.

A Celebration of Chad’s Life and luncheon will be held at VA Romo Post #3165, Negaunee VFW on Saturday, April 13th from 2-5 pm. Interment will take place at Bakkala Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed in his memory to the Little Lake American Legion or the Negaunee VFW.
