October 15, 1937 ~ January 31, 2020
Little, Robert 1937-2020, "Coach"
Bob passed into Eternal Life on Jan. 31, 2020. Bob was God's Precious Child; Vera's Sweetheart; Sharon and Deborah's Dad; Chris's Father-in-Law; Grandpa to Lauren, Carsten, and Grace; and Best Friend to his little dog Coco. Bob was a native son, born in Hollywood and raised in Ventura. He enlisted in the Army in 1958 and served four years as a Sergeant for the Defense Atomic Security Agency where he was named Soldier of the Year 4th Army in 1960. He graduated from UCLA and Pepperdine. Bob said the 33 years he served at Torrance High School were an absolute joy for him as basketball coach, teacher, and President of the Torrance Teacher's Association. Bob excelled in everything he touched: athletics, flying, computers, photography, fishing, and poker. He was a patriot, strong Christian, and he glorified God by the way he lived his life.
