Obituary

Burlington, NC:   Walter Roger (Rick) Little, 69, of Burlington and formerly of Atlanta, has passed away. He died peacefully in his sleep following a three-year battle with cancer. Rick was the son of the late Walter Roscoe and Rose Little of Doraville, Ga. He was born April 25, 1954.

Rick was a long-time security officer in Burlington and previously was employed by the Times News of Burlington. During his career Rick was manager of maintenance facilities and assistant superintendent for several retirement complexes in Atlanta. Early in his career he served as a certified nursing assistant for an Atlanta hospital. A popular karaoke performer, Rick Little was a lifelong Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket and often was referred to by the nickname Buzz.

Throughout his life Rick was heavily involved in youth sports, especially baseball. He was a youth league baseball coach in the Shiloh and Snellville communities outside Atlanta, and commissioner and president of the North DeKalb Youth Sports Assn. Rick was a certified baseball umpire and football official for the state of Georgia travelling throughout the state for those duties.

A private ceremony is planned. Piedmont Cremation Services of Graham, NC, is managing arrangements. Rick is survived by his wife, Teresa Little of Burlington; his brother, Mike Little and wife Debbie of Gibsonville; his niece, Ashleigh Little, and his nephew, Drew Little, both of Spartanburg, SC.
