He is preceded in death by his parents Bailey “Buck” Little and Ann Ree Whitley Little of Huffman; brothers George Michael Little (Missouri), and Patrick Bailey Little (Prattville).
He is survived by his wife Brandy Duffel Little (Berry Mountain in Oneonta) and his three children Michelle Little of Oneonta, Kevin Little (Mary), and Scott Little of Birmingham. He is most proud of his beloved granddaughter Miss Ansley Carter Doak. Dan is survived by his siblings Jane Pratt (Henry) of Wyoming, Sally Holley (Pete), John Little (Debbie), Missy Pitt (Larry), and Joe Little (Angie) of Birmingham, and many loved nieces and nephews.
Dan graduated from Huffman High School in 1974 and began a long and successful career at Alabama Power (Southern Company) in 1977. He worked in the Trussville and Birmingham metropolitan area as a lineman and on the high line. Later he worked as line crew foreman of Blount County crew for 25 years and remained there until he retired from Alabama Power in 2020 after 43 years of service.
Dan was known all over Alabama and other southern states as he encountered many various power company crews and contractors during storm related work and hurricanes over the years. He was very well known and loved by all residents in the Blount County area as he served and supported the community. He loved the outdoors and was an avid deer hunter, fisherman, and later became well crafted at turning wood and carpentry. In his younger years, he was very well known in the Central Alabama area to cut trees using the old saddle-type equipment. Local schools would depend on Dan for installing and maintenance of power pole lights in many of the school athletic fields to support the local programs. Dan attended and served in many of the children’s programs at Pine Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Rosa with his wife Brandy.
Friends and family were invited to attend visitation at the church Saturday, Oct. 16, from noon until 2 p.m. The funeral service began at 2 p.m. with burial at Dailey’s Chapel in Rosa. Lemley Funeral Home directed.
