Mr Tom Little Twotrees
TOM LITTLE passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday April 7th 2002.
Known to so many through their interest in the show scene, Tom and his late wife Grace were successful breeder/exhibitors of both Old English Sheepdogs and Hungarian Pulis, and Tom was President of the Hungarian Puli Club.
I first knew them from a meeting at Hitchin Open Show where Joe Braddon was judging, around the 1962 era. Formerly living near to Royston, Herts, on Toms retirement as a Sqn Ldr in the RAF, he took up a post at the Fire Services College at Moreton in Marsh, and they then moved to their lovely Cotswold home just outside Little Rissington. Anyone who was ever fortunate enough to visit The Follies will recall the wonderful walled garden, pool, orchard and stream.
Upon losing his wife, Tom accepted that it was becoming too much to cope with, and went to live with their only son Andrew at Sawston, on the outskirts of Cambridge. With decreasing mobility, Tom was unable to get around very much, unless Andrew took him in a wheelchair.
Sympathy will be extended to Andrew by so many who enjoyed Toms help and support over a considerable period. Tom not only became actively involved in his breed clubs - South Western OES Club, Hungarian Puli Club - but was frequently to act as steward at many shows.
Further details to be confirmed, but Andrew is anticipating cremation in the Cambridge area, with Toms ashes being interred with Graces at the Little Rissington Parish Church.
I was privileged to have known Tom for 40 years, and will miss his notes and news.
