Thomas Davey Little
Thomas Davey Little (Tom) passed away peacefully on Dec. 12, 2012 at the Lady Minto Hospital surrounded by his family. Tom is survived by his 5 boys and their wives (David and Donna, Daryl and Rhonda, Brian and Doris, Tom and Diane and Duane and Leah) 15 grandchildren and 26 great grandchildren. Also left to cherish his memory are 3 brothers, 1 sister and 1 brother-in-law. He was predeceased by his wife Mildred in 2005 and grandchild Clark in 2003. Tom was born 3rd child of 9 children at Donovan, Sk. The family moved to Leroy, Sk. because of the dirty 30’s to homestead. Tom grew up at Leroy, served in the military, married Mildred Knudsen and they raised 5 boys on a small farm. Dad was a successful farmer, carpenter and money manager and retired early. Tom and Mildred also lived at Snowden, Sk., Saskatoon, Sk., New Westminster, BC. and Mill Bay, BC. Tom and Mildred retired to Salt Spring Island in 1986. They both had a passion for gardening and Tom was well-known within the horticultural community wherever they lived. Tom had a small market garden on Salt Spring Island. Hobbies Tom enjoyed included hunting, trapping, stamp and coin collecting and reading. The Little family would like to give an extra big thank-you to Dr. Reznick and the hospital staff at Lady Minto Hospital for their care and professionalism which went far beyond their call of duty. The service will be at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday Dec. 20, 2012 at the Community Gospel Church.
