Dennis Allen Little II, resident of Oscoda. Our beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend passed away April 26, 2021, surrounded by family, after a courageous 4-year battle with colon cancer. He was born August 19, 1970 in Midland, the son of Dennis Little and Jane Little.
Dennis graduated from Hemlock High School and attended Lansing Community College. He started his career as an Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic and then moved on to General Manager of Operations. Dennis married the love of his life, Irene, in 1997. They are blessed with two sons, Tyler and Jarred. Dennis loved his pontoon, fishing, camping, hunting and garage parties. He was an avid sportsman and a true U of M fan ("GO BLUE!"). Most of all, he cherished his wife, sons, his family, and friends. To know Dennis was to love him!
