Little, Larry  
ODESSA Larry Little, born November 27, 1951 in Big Spring, Texas, went to be with our Lord and Savior on August 20, 2015. Larry was an awesome husband and best friend to his wife Cheryl and the best dad in the world to his son Devin. He was beloved by his two sisters. To all his friends and acquaintances, Larry was just Larry. We will all miss his humor and quick wit. Larry's favorite quote was: Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well persevered body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming 'WOW what a ride'. Larry is preceded in death by his father Elmer Lee Little, mother Opal Manley, and brother Eldon Lee Little. He is survived by his wife Cheryl Little, son Devin Lee Little, sister Patsy Hubbard, twin sister Karen Little, nieces Danna Williams and Michelle Young, nephew Aaron Brown and other family members not listed. A special thanks to Dr. Naidu, nurse, Vanessa, the staff of the CCU at ORMC and Baylor Hospital in Dallas, and Home Hospice Care. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Home Hospice Care is requested. Family visitation will be Sunday, August 23, 2015 at 2:00 PM with services to follow at 3:00 at Hubbard-Kelly Funeral Home with the Rev. Marcos Zuniga officiating. Services entrusted to Hubbard-Kelly Funeral Home.
