Thurman Littlefield, 84, earned his heavenly wings Sunday, April 7 with his wife Patty by his side at Carriage House Manor. 

Thurman was born August 19, 1939 in Hopkins County to A.C. “Babe” Littlefield and Frauline Horne Littlefield. The family resided in the Peerless community for many years while he and his siblings attended North Hopkins school. He was the youngest of seven children and spoiled rotten by his three older sisters and three brothers.

Thurman is survived by his wife Patty with whom he shared 38 years, including the 10-year courtship while they both worked for Associated Milk Producers, Inc at a time when marriage between employees was not allowed.  They married September 25, 1994 shortly after he retired from his 35-year career with AMPI. Together they both dedicated over 75 years of service to the dairy farmers throughout the southwest US.

A man with integrity who treasured his friends, he was often a source of guidance for younger people in the community who often came to him for a listening ear.  After retirement he enjoyed the farm life on his tractors baling hay and working with his Beefmaster cattle that were spoiled as if they were children. 

Thurman is survived by his wife, son Don Littlefield of Irving, sister Vergie Allen of Paris along with friends and extended family including the Justin Ashby family (wife Letitia, daughters April and Shannon along with their families,

He was preceded in death by his parents, twin son Dan, brothers C.M. “Bunny” Littlefield, Bill Littlefield, Frank Littlefield, sisters Helen Harris and Ardith Lucky along with several special nieces and nephews.
