Lincoln A. Little Obituary


Lincoln A. Little, 96, of Wethersfield, beloved husband of Enid (Azan) Little, died Monday (April 28, 2014) at home. Born in Gordon Town, Jamaica, he was the son of the late Felix and Eugenie Little and came to America in 1944. Construction and building fascinated him, so he attended trade school and worked as a truck driver for a time before he started building houses. He built many homes in Wethersfield, Glastonbury and other local towns and even built some on Cape Cod. Eventually he became a partner in the construction company, Portis, Little and Brooks. In 1968, he left the construction business to take the job of Assistant Building Official for the Town of Wethersfield. He enjoyed helping other builders and working with people, assisting them with permits and also inspecting new buildings. He retained that position for 30 years, retiring in 1998. After retirement, he was able to devote more time to his favorite hobbies, jigsaw puzzles and golfing. In addition to his wife, he will be dearly missed by his seven children, sons, Clive Little of Bloomfield, Khaleel James of FL and Andre James of Hartford, daughters, Erica Davis of the UK, Pauline Edgar of Simsbury, Ofelia Chang of Columbia and Cecilia Little of Wethersfield; his sister Mavis Little of Jamaica; 27 grandchildren; 43 great-grandchildren and 10 great-great-grandchildren, as well as a host of nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his daughter and son-in-law, Pamela and Vincent Gianni and his four brothers, Berris, Valney, Morris and Cleveland. A memorial service will be held on Sunday (May 18) at 4 p.m. at Wethersfield United Methodist Church, 150 Prospect St., Wethersfield with the Rev. Albert Hahn officiating. Burial will be private and there are no calling hours. Donations in Lincoln's memory may be made to the Wethersfield United Methodist Church for their Steeple Fund or their Food Pantry. The D'Esopo Funeral Chapel, Wethersfield is entrusted with the arrangements. For on-line expressions of sympathy to the family, please visit www.desopo.com.
