Robert Gordon (Robbie) Little(1949 - 2013)

It is with love and deepest sadness that the family of Rob Little wish to announce his passing. Rob passed away peacefully on September 4, 2013 surrounded by his loved ones following a brief and brave 2 month battle with cancer. During his battle and even through terrible pain Rob's wonderful sense of humor and inner strength did not waiver, his cheerful nature shone through as he enjoyed his visits with family and friends.

Rob is predeceased by his parents Gordon and Ruth Little (nee Murphy). He is survived by his loving wife of 17 years Teresa, his children Ryan Little and Jennifer McAllister (Nathen), mother of his children Barb Hilborn (Howard), sister Donalea Baldwin (Ron), nieces Shanon Baldwin and Renee Farquhar (Bruce), Stepdaughters Maria Haagerup (Rene) and Maxine Scott (Steve) and 7 wonderful grandchildren.

Rob was born in Vancouver and moved to Crofton when he was 15 making it his lifelong home. He started working at the Crofton Mill in 1975 where he met many of his closest friends. Rob lived life to the fullest enjoying baseball, boating, travelling, dancing and his favorite pass time; riding his many motor bikes. Rob was always the life of the party enjoying them right until final call. He had a mathematical mind, playing a mean game of cards and always winning at Scrabble.

Rob will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. From Crofton to Mexico (his favorite place) to England and the US, Rob touched the lives of all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving this warm, wonderful, gentle, fun and loving man.

We wish to thank Dr. Manny Fritsch for his compassion and care during his difficult struggle and all the wonderful nurses at CDH and CHCC who brought him comfort and relief. A special thanks to his niece Renee who nursed him throughout, her love for him was a shining light. Thank you all for being so kind and loving.

The family will receive friends and family for a celebration of Rob's life on Sunday, September 15 fro 2 - 5 p at 7588 Babine Place, Crofton.

Rob, although you have parted from us, know that you will never be far from our thoughts and forever in our hearts
