Bernard "Bud" Little

Bernard “Bud” Little of Glenwood Springs and Las Vegas died Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2003. He was 73.

Cremation has taken place, and burial took place at Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minn.

He was born Jan. 19, 1930, in Minneapolis, where he spent his childhood. As a child, he contracted and overcame polio.

In 1956 he moved with his wife and daughters to Los Angeles.

Always in pursuit of knowledge and excellence, he worked in many trades, but persevered to obtain a position in law enforcement. At the time of retirement at age 50, he was a captain with the Los Angeles County Marshal’s Department. He had a great respect for the law and continued his education throughout his tenure with the marshal’s department.

Mr. Little enjoyed tasting his way through life and never knew a stranger. People and dogs were drawn to him. He gave his family love and laughter and was a shining example to light their lives.

In recent years, he moved to Las Vegas, and spent more time in Colorado with his daughters and grandchildren.

Mr. Little is survived by daughters and sons-in-law Linda Arnold of Carbondale, Robin and Ken Garvik of Carbondale, and Ricki and John McHugh of Aspen; by grandchildren Sandy Arnold, Jon Arnold, Cory Rosenberg, Dane Garvik and Landon Garvik, all of the Roaring Fork Valley, and Quinn Garvik of Los Angeles; by great-grandchildren Jack Arnold and Devyn Arnold; and by his best friend, Blade.
