LITTELL--Andrew Andrew Littell, 44, died in London of a sudden illness on December 17, 2012. His immediate surviving family includes his wife Brooke Russell, and daughters Grace, 14, and Catherine, 11; his father Walter D. Littell, step-mother Leli Sudler; a sister Frances Littell, her husband Adam Heath, and their son Max; a brother Matthew Littell, his wife Sheila Gallagher, and their son Jude; and a step-sister, Isabel Black. Andrew's mother Penelope Platt Littell died in 1984. Born in New York City, Andrew was a graduate of Middlesex School, Columbia University (BA) and University of Chicago (MBA). A managing director of CVC Credit Partners in London, he was responsible for European loan and bond trading. Andrew possessed a magnificently kind and sunny nature, infectious laugh, electric wit and far-ranging intelligence. He had integrity and an open mind. With his buoyant soul, Andrew brought joy to the lives of his family, friends and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic - and will be missed tremendously. A memorial service will be held at 2pm on Saturday, January 19th at First Parish Church, 20 Lexington Road, Concord, Mass., with a gathering in London at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Andrew's memory to two Maine organizations: North Haven Arts and Enrichment or North Haven Conservation Partners.
