December 11, 1941 - January 24, 2022
Joseph Wayne Little was granted his angel wings on January 24th, 2022. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that adored Wayne as he adored them. Wayne lived a full life enjoying the little things that many would only dream of experiencing. He appreciated each conversation, each visit and always looked at the positiveness of what life offered. His gentle smile, encouraging words and boundless support echoed through all he met. He was, indeed, larger than life but humble to everyone. He understood the hardships that could befall and was there to support everyone, not only family. He was very patriotic, serving his country and fellow man. Although the last years of his life were a struggle, he gave us all such courage and hope, often reminding us of the preciousness of life. He enjoyed traveling, fishing, hunting, reading, carpentry, cooking and attending church. Most of all, he enjoyed time. Time spent with his family and friends.
