Michael James Little, 65, passed away on Tuesday, August 4 at Solvay Hospice House. He was born in Duluth on August 27, 1954 to James and Edith Little. He attended Duluth Public Schools and graduated from Duluth Central in 1973. After graduation he volunteered countless hours in the press box at Public School Stadium for football games. His enthusiasm for helping out with anything Central High related never wavered. He was always willing to lend a hand with special events from the annual Swain Cross Country meet in October to the Spring Pop Concert in May. This went on for many years past his graduation. For many years he also enjoyed playing Santa in December. He was a former member of St. Benedict's Catholic Church and the Moose Lodge. His nieces and nephews also kept him busy when they were young; they all counted on Uncle Mike to drive them to their many after school activities and those trips usually involved a stop at a restaurant.
Mike is survived by sisters Claudia Adams, Cheryl (Don) Boso, Debbie Wiesen and brother Patrick C. Little, nieces Tricia Kujawa, Kelly MacDougall, Lisa Wiesen and nephews Nevada Torrance, Jim Torrance, Bradley Little, Patrick J. Little, and Erick Wiesen.
A family service will be held at Park Hill Cemetery. Arrangements by Dougherty Funeral Home. 600 E. 2nd Street, Duluth, MN 55805. 218-727-3555.
