Florian, Patron Saint of
Firefighters, pray for Jeff

Jeff graduated from Sylacauga High School in Alabama in 1981. He began his career with the Childersburg Fire & Rescue as a Fire-Paramedic. Jeff's wife, Diane, accepted a nursing transfer to Waycross Georgia in 2001 and Jeff then began his career with the Waycross Fire Department.

Jeff's comrades are in mourning over his death. He is described as a great fireman and paramedic who also had a sense of humor.

Jeff's family are in shock over his sudden passing. He is their hero and will be forever missed.

Jeff is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members, including his parents, Paul and Mary Little; his brothers Andy and James Little; his wife, Diane; and his son, David Little. 

Thanks for your service, Jeff.

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die by misadventure. They are with us one moment and gone the next.

God save us from the Arsonists who bring death to the innocent. Amen.

Pray that Jeff is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
