My sincere condolences to the family, friends, colleagues, students of Dr. Little. I did not know Dr. Little or have the pleasure of taking any of his courses but I heard much about him from friends and family who did have him as a professor. U of M Dearborn will not be the same without him, RIH sir.

I was a student of Professor Little. I took his Machine Analysis class and I must say, Robert Little was a man of integrity, intelligence and wit. He loved his students, but even more so he loved his passion, engineering. He taught with great knowledge and developed a popular reputation throughout the school. I can't forget the friendly banter and career advice he would give my group and I outside of class. He felt like a friend rather than a professor.

My experience taking his class will be one of the most impactful and remembered experiences of my schooling career and possibly even my life.
