Robert Earl Little, age 66, passed away at his home in Glenwood, Utah on August 23, 2015. He was born Nov. 20, 1948 in Montgomery, Alabama, a son of Charles E. and Fannie Mae Hawkins Little. When he as little, his family moved to Mesquite, Nevada and then to Caliente, Nevada. He graduated from Lincoln County High school in 1966. He married his high school sweetheart, VeOla Barnum in 1967. They lived in Pioche, Nevada for the next few years. They welcomed their first two children while living there, Chad and VeEtta.
They moved around for jobs and opportunities, first to Baker, Nevada, then Moab, Utah. They settled in Elsinore, Utah in the 1970’s.
Robert and VeOla were sealed in the Manti LDS Temple for time and all eternity in 1981. Their family was complete when Loretta was born in 1984.
In 1987 they moved back to Pioche, Nevada. Robert worked at the Nevada test Site as an equipment operator.
Robert lived a life of integrity, love and service. He is remembered fondly by all who worked with him. He worked hard and never complained.
