WESTMINSTER - Colin W. Little Jr., passed away December 10, 2022 at the age of 68.
He was born in Newark, NJ on October 21, 1954, son of the late Colin and late Katherine (O’Connor) Little.
Colin is survived by his wife of 42 years, Kathleen Brennan, and children: Mary Little and her partner Josh Archibald-Seiffer of Seattle, WA and Colin Little III of Westminster. Colin was the beloved brother of Regina Little, Kathleen Marck, Patricia Little, Brian Little, Elizabeth Libero, and Pamela Tripsas. Also lovingly survived by his mother-In-law, Mary Brennan, and many nieces and nephews.
Colin earned a degree in Civil Engineering from Northeastern University in Boston, where he met his wife Kathleen and his best friend Jay Larson. He worked as a general contractor for over 35 years, starting his own successful commercial construction company in 1987 and going on to build numerous buildings, all still standing to this day.
Colin is best remembered for his impish smile, keen sense of humor, intelligence, and kind heart. He loved to talk and make people laugh, and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone who needed it.
He enjoyed watching, playing, and coaching sports, especially football, golf, and baseball. He was a very humble and gracious man who enjoyed the simple pleasures in life. Colin will also be remembered for his fondness for the “Swap Shack” at the local dump as well as for acquiring “antiques” by paying “top dollar” for them. He enjoyed cooking breakfast for his family and was famous for his omelets. He loved music and thought there was nothing better than seeing a great rock band perform live.
Some of his other major accomplishments include becoming a known entity on a local radio show for winning too many prizes and his volunteer work for the city of Boston testing the engineering safety of the city’s landmarks, most notably the Citgo sign.
Private services were held.
Mack Family Funeral Home, 105 Central Street, Gardner assisted with Colin’s arrangements.
