Kenneth "Ken" Cail Little
Ken Little of Moncton; passed away with his family at his side at The Moncton Hospital on Saturday, September 12, 2020. Born in Waltham MA. and raised in Berry Mills, NB., he was the son of the late Ernie and Grace (Cail) Little.
Ken started his career as a manufactures agent with Sklar Pepplar. In the 1970's he along with Rocky Stone opened the Little Rock Beverage Room, one of Moncton's largest and most popular food and drink establishments.
As an avid sportsman, Ken curled out of the Beausejour Curling Club and he along with his team mates represented New Brunswick at the Canadian Curling Briar in Saskatoon in 1965. He enjoyed golfing and was a member of the Moncton Golf and Country Club. Ken was also on the advisory board of the AHL Moncton Hawks Hockey Club, as well as a life member of the MFA (Moncton Football Association). He played for the Sussex Jr. Rangers who as a team were recently inducted to the Greater Sussex Sports Wall of Fame.
Ken was a lifetime member of the Elks Club (Lodge 229 ) where he spent a majority of his time playing cards, playing pranks and having laughs with his friends and brothers enjoying his rum and coke. He lived his life some can only dream of doing, the way he wanted too everyday and it was a great life. We will miss his sense of humour, his love of family with his great stories and his excellent cooking.
He is survived his four children, Beverley "Bev"
Little, Robert "Bob" (Line) Little, Karen (Roland) Robichaud
and Patricia "Patti" (Gene) Mitton of Riverview;
grandchildren Jeremy and Matthew Mitton, Mary and Peter Robichaud also

establishment and raise a glass."
