John A. Little of Auburn, was born in Tennessee on March 3, 1970 and passed away at his home on May 21, 2021. He was 51 years old.
John was preceded in death by his parents, Bobby Joe and Charlotte Overstreet Little, granddaughter, Delilah Hope Little.
John is survived by his wife, Priscilla Pope Little, his children, Joshua Little, Benjamin Little and Susanna Little Mullins (Marshall Mullins), a brother, David Little (Kelly Howell Little) and in-laws, Justin Pope and Cindy Pope Dearman
John took his final bikepacking adventure on this earth in late October of 2020 and was struck by cancer shortly thereafter. John’s journey was a tough one, with many hills to climb, but he rode hard as he entered the gates of heaven. Never a quitter, he entered into eternal life with calm and peace. Known for his ability to create fun and exciting bike routes, both on and off the road, John is now in search of the most glorious route of all. He is witnessing sites that are so beautiful that we can’t even imagine. He is preparing the perfect campsite to welcome his friends and family as they enter eternal life and join him.
Always the adventurist, John had other joys in life other than biking. He loved being outdoors and relishing in the beauty of God’s creation, but John’s greatest love was his wife and children. He will be greatly missed by many, but none will miss him more than his family.
Graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 27, 2021 at Town Creek Cemetery.
Ride on, Johnny Auburn a.k.a. Wrong Way Johnny!
