Gary Thomas Littleton

May 3, 1962 ~ October 10, 2023

Gary Thomas Littleton, 61, of Lake Charles, passed away on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, in his home, after a brief illness.  Gary was born on May 3, 1962, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Huey Thomas Littleton and Ouida Joyce Haygood Littleton.

He was a 1980 graduate of Sulphur High School where he lettered in three sports and was an All-State Quarterback.  Gary was also a recipient of the Jep Blake Memorial Award.  He was the state’s highest scorer, MVP of District 4A, and was All Southwest and All District for baseball.  He received a scholarship to McNeese State University for football.  After graduating from McNeese, Gary went to work under his father at Littleton Claims Service for 40 Years.  Gary was happiest when he was outdoors hunting, fishing and watching sports.  He credited his father, and coach Shannon Suarez for being the most influential men in his life.

He loved to watch his children growing up and playing sports, and his two granddaughters were his pride and joy and he loved spending time with them.

Those left to cherish his memory are his daughters, Laura Lea Littleton and Erica Littleton Norwood and husband Eric Norwood; a son Tanner Thomas Littleton; and two grandchildren, Emmie, and Elle Norwood.

The family would like to extend special thanks to Charlie and Kristi Suarez Sanner, Hunter Lundy and James Hall.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Huey Thomas Littleton, and Ouida Joyce Haygood Littleton; a sister, Pamela Maxine Littleton Ellender; brother-in-law, Eric Ross Ellender; and son, Logan Thomas Littleton.

A memorial service to celebrate Gary’s life will be held at 1:00 PM, Saturday, October 14, 2023, at Johnson and Robison Funeral Home in Sulphur.  Hunter Lundy will officiate.  The family will receive friends at 10:00 AM, until the time of service.

  3. Very few guys besides our classmates deserve to be called best friend! Gary you were definitely one on them! R.I.P. Gary! Prayers of comfort and healing to all our classmates and his family

  4. Mann, very shocked and sad to hear about the passing of Gary. Super nice guy. Gary and I knew each other at McNeese. I remember him pounding on our door waking up my roommate to either go fishing or hunting. This was at 4 O’clock in the morning.  He was always trying to convince me to go with them. ha ha   He knew I didn’t do either one. ha ha.  He would say Scott,” We Got Room for You in The Blind, Come on and Go”!!  I would tell’em  Maybe Next Time!  

    My Thoughts and Prayers are with Gary’s family. Gary will always have the best seat in house now high above Cowboy and Tiger Stadium. Gary will probably ask me again, If I wanna Go Fishing and Hunting with a big laugh when he see’s me with my Sooners in 2024 in Tiger Stadium. ha ha.  Rest In Peace my Friend and teammate Gary Littleton.
