Clinton William Little

Clint was born in 1949, in Nanaimo BC. His family moved to Victoria when he was 13, he made life long friends while attending Mt. Doug grad ’67.
Clint passed away suddenly while living in Brentwood Bay, BC, at the age of 71.
Clint married Diane (Egeland) in 1972 and worked at Houston Signs for more than 40 years.
He loved to fish at Durrance Lake and Elk Lake in his last year’s. His legacy was to gift many rods to over 35 people young and old before he died. He was successful with his legacy!
Clint will be remembered most for his love of fishing and always having a joke to tell. He was a joker and loved his kids/grandson/friends more than all the fish in the sea.
Clint is survived by his children Tonyia Little, Tyler Little (wife Allison), and most beloved grandson Ayden. His sister Denny (husband Les Ahlsten), their children Ingrid Ahlsten, Danja (husband Tim Semenowycz, and children Elias, Ada), Rya (husband Jon Graham and children Reid, Charlie, and Sullivan), and niece Amori (husband Ryan Dumond and children Ashton and Chaz). Clint was predeceased by his parents Ken and Joyce Little as well as his brother/best friend Michael Little.
A memorial will be through Zoom on March 20, please contact family for credentials.

The day Ayden was born Clint became Papa C, we all cherish our memories with Papa C. Keep sharing them with each other.
As Clint would end many letters or emails.

    I remember Clint with fondness. He was so kind to me when my husband Bob passed away. Always a smile and a hug whenever we met somewhere in Brentwood. A gentle soul

    I was sad to hear of Clint’s passing I met Clint at Mt Doug where we shared a few classes together and played on the rugby team. I always remember and admired his jovial fun loving disposition…a quality that made him fun to be around.
    My condolences to the family on your loss.

    I first knew Clint in early teens, I recall he had a love of classic car’s,and I think he had a custom pickup truck at that time.
    Fast forward into my 30s I reconnected with Clint again through the company I worked for,Trio ready mix.
    We would supply concrete for Houston signs,and Clint would come to our site whenever we had a vehicle to put our Logo on,and he did it all free hand,he even did the signage on our race car.
    I always enjoyed chatting with him, he was a very good man,with a good sense of humor
    One of the good one’s My condolences to the family

    I met Clint but once at Durrance. My son and I shared the dock with Clint. I remember a happy, jovial, and genuine person. We chatted all morning about fishing, life, and the loss of his brother. My son caught a bass which swallowed the hook. Clint said “it won’t go to waste” and he showed us the eagle across the lake. He told my son to throw it in the water… sure enough the eagle swooped down and grabbed it. Clint had the eagle trained. Lol. When we left, Clint gave my son two rod ties. He made an impression on me as that must have been 10 years ago.
    My condolences to Clint’s family, but take comfort in knowing he made the world a better place… definitely.

    My condolences to Clint’s close family and friends. Clint was a great guy. He always had a joke and a smile for everyone. He was a great teacher, mentor, and caring person, who always put everyone else ahead of himself. His latest act of kindness was setting up random kids at the lake to fish with rods and tackle he gathered, repaired, or rebuilt himself.
    I will miss him dearly, but I know he is now at peace fishing again with his brother Mike.

    • Tonyia Little -

      The Houston name was like royalty in our house growing up, thanks for being dad’s other family. ❤

    I went to high school with Clint. We played on the 1966-67 Mt.Doug rugby team. It stands today as one of two Mt Doug teams to ever win the City Championship-the Howard Russel Cup. I didn’t see a lot of Clint after high school but he was a great guy and I always enjoyed bumping in to him
    My sincere condolences to the family.

    We were so saddened to see Clint had passed away. Our deepest sympathy to all of the family.
    I first knew Clint in childhood and my husband knew him from Mt Doug High school (rugby) and subsequently work projects.
    We have an name/address sign we commissioned him to make for our lake cottage. While it was intended to go outside, it was just too nice and so it sits on display in our great room at the lake. btw he absolutely wouldn’t accept payment for it.
    We will always remember him as a kind, funny and generous man.

    Doris & Bruce Johns
