When his work day was through, Littlejohn didn’t come home and sit down. Far from that, he could be found doing some hunting or fishing. There was always a softball game to watch, and if his grandchildren were playing, it was all the better for Littlejohn. He raised hound dogs and liked to keep up with fellow enthusiasts. Littlejohn possessed a green thumb and raised beautiful tomatoes. It was all about his family. He loved his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren dearly and relished every moment they had the chance to spend time together. He loved to play with his grandchildren. Littlejohn was equally pleasant around his friends and people he met. He had no problem walking up to a stranger and engaging him in conversation. He was a people person, plain and simple. Littlejohn was a Christian by faith, and a member of Johnson Prairie Baptist Church, where he served as Assistant Sunday School Director and served on the food committee. The Lord called his good and faithful servant home on January 13th, 2013 in Tulsa, OK with his loved ones gathered by his side. He was 65 years old. He leaves a legacy of unselfish living for his grandchildren to pattern themselves after, and he will be missed for all the love he gave each and every one of his family and friends.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife Clara of the home, and three children, Charles Gann and wife Teresa of Moody ,OK, Carole Gann of Moody, OK and Rodney Gann of Tahlequah.

Sorry we were unable to attend the services we had intentions of coming to the wake service but James was not feeling well. Our prayers are with the family during these sad times. We were blessed to have met LittleJohn at Johnson Prairie and visit with him about working at Tulsa Screw Products with Barbara's brothers Ray & Bill Breazeale. Bill was also sorry to hear of his passing and has fond memories of working with him for many years. James & Barbara Rice Pryor, Ok
