Obituary – Ted Little


Edward “Ted” Caruthers Little of Kincardine passed away peacefully, with his family by his side, at the South Bruce Grey Health Centre in Kincardine on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, at the age of 69, after a battle with brain cancer.
Ted is survived by his cherished wife of nearly 45 years, Rita Little (née L’Heureux) and daughters Natassia Christow (Marc) and Catherine McGlynn (James).
Proud papa to his grandchildren: Jazlyn, Hunter, Mylah, Katherine, Emma, & William.
Beloved brother to Margo Humphreys (the late Paul, 2020) and John Little (Connie).
Pre-deceased by his parents Edward and Frances Anne Little (née Clarkin) of Ottawa.
Ted was born in Marathon, Ontario on Feb. 22, 1955 and spent his youth in the Ottawa (Nepean) area. He graduated as an engineer from the Royal Military College in Kingston. He served in the Navy before joining Ontario Hydro Nuclear in 1982 at the Bruce Nuclear Power Development, where he worked his full career before retiring in 2019.
Ted was warm hearted, honest, generous, incredibly knowledgeable and did not shy away from a healthy debate. He lived his life authentically, always speaking his mind, and taking a genuine interest in others. His generosity was exemplified in 2002 when he became one of the first liver transplant living donors in Canada, donating part of his liver to his good friend Terry Smith. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
In his own words: “I have lived a great life, with loving family, in one of the nicest places there is. I have no regrets about my life and hope my loved ones won’t be sad for too long.”
Cremation has taken place.
A celebration of his life will take place in Kincardine at a later date.
Memorial donations to the London Health Sciences Foundation or the Kincardine and Community Health Care Foundation would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
