Neil Little, 62, Fargo, passed away on Friday, February 7, 2014.

Neil Albert Little was born to Ethel and Forrest Little on September 8, 1951. Raised on a small dairy farm in Wyndmere, North Dakota, Neil and his two sisters learned the values of integrity, faith in God and the value of hard work from their loving parents.

As a young man, Neil loved the outdoors. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and sports shooter, who enjoyed exploring the history of firearms with his muzzleloader friends and beloved uncle, Rudy.

In 1980, Neil married Mona, the love of his life. Theirs was a story of abiding devotion, forged by the hopes, joys, triumphs and tragedies shared during 33 years of selfless marriage. With Mona by his side, Neil built his life in Fargo, raising four children in the Fargo Catholic Schools network while making his mark in the used medical equipment business. The key to Neil’s success was simple: people trusted him, because he was a man of honesty and character. He cared deeply for his coworkers and those he served, making numerous friends throughout the country.

While Neil proved to be an outstanding salesman, his true passion in life was found at home. In countless homework sessions, gymnastic shows, softball games, and all sorts of other activities that occupy the busy life of an affectionate father, Neil lived for his family. The example he set as a father and spouse is the great inheritance he leaves to his children.

To summarize the achievements of a life so well lived in such a short space usually borders on the impossible. But Neil was a simple man, so simple words befit his legacy: Neil loved his family. He loved his work. He loved his Church. But above all, he loved his wife, and he worked tirelessly to provide a future worthy of the life they shared together.

Neil leaves behind wife Mona, daughters Mckensie, Alexandra and Madison, his son Logan, his mother Ethel, and sisters, Linda and Kay (and Brody).

Neil is preceded in death by his father, Bud Little, and his two beautiful sons, Joshua and Samuel, who’ve received their daddy with a joy we cannot know…in a place where all tears will be wiped away.

There will be a visitation from 5-7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 with a prayer service following at 7:00 P.M. at Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center, Fargo. The funeral service will be at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, February 13, 2014 at Sts. Anne and Joachim Catholic Church, Fargo with a visitation one hour prior.

Arrangements entrusted to the care of Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center, Fargo. To sign the online guestbook, please visit www.boulgerfuneralhome.com.
