To Brenda and family, we are so saddened by the tragic loss of Keith. He was, as you know the life of the room, any room! He had a heart of gold and truly loved all his family and friends. He would do anything for anyone.  I will miss all the laughs and will hold the many memories I’ve had with Keith over the years in my heart forever.  I will have funny stories to tell for many years to come. I know he will still be looking down on all of us and can’t wait for the time we are all reunited and can laugh together again.  Gone too soon but never forgotten! I love you brother!  Rest In Peace

Dear Littler Family.  I’m so sorry to hear about Keith. Keith and I used to play together when he lived on Bowden Dr in South Huntington.  Our family was so sad when the Littlers moved.  We visited them a few times when going to Lancaster. Our condolences go out to his wife, kids and the whole family. love Karrie Henbest Guariglia

I met Keith two weeks ago when he visited our facility to give us options for purchasing a new backhoe. He was so kind and patient with the staff and me as we discussed our unique needs and the challenges that we faced in a 145-year-old cemetery.  He certainly addressed all of our concerns and we purchased a backhoe from him based upon his solid recommendations. We were looking forward to working with him in the months and years ahead. The staff and I were so sad to hear of his sudden passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with this family during this sad time.

To Brenda and the Littlers: We’ve lost a great man on earth. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Keith through Shawn, Jesse, Oscar, Dean and others aka my Lampeter Crew. We had some great yet unusual times when we all hung out together. Those are the times I will never forget and I will never forget Keith and his silly off the wall ways. I pray that the Littler Family continues to move forward in life and be that the shining light for the kids, siblings, nieces and nephews. Rest In Power keep, you provided a good foundation for your family…#Never4Get

My deepest sympathy to Keith’s entire family, I just knew Keith through him shopping at the  SMB over the years and also through his father Ed and his mother shopping in the store over the years,  and sister Kristina and her husband Michael who we have know for years. He was a kind and pleasant guy. I am sending hugs and prayers to you all.

So very sorry for your families great loss. I did know Keith personally but heard many of great stories about him. His brother Kenny is a very close friend to me, and our whole family. Kenny always spoke about Keith and his beautiful family, he held his brother on a pedestal and and glowed just mentioning his name.  I too lost my Brother, and like Keith he was just to young to go🥲 My heart goes out to you all, keep each other close. We all are sending love and prayers in abundance! You have our families depeest regrets. Love, Greg and Mel❤️❤️🙏🙏

Big Keith will be so deeply missed. He was warm, fun loving, humorous, and so sweet – the kind of person everyone loved to be around! I feel grateful to have been included in so many family gatherings with the Eshbachs and Littlers over the years where I witnessed him light up the room with his personality and he treated me like a niece of his own. Sending love and healing during this difficult time to his wife, children, grandson and all those who loved him. I am so sorry for your loss <3
