Jon Hamilton Little, 75, of State College, died unexpectedly on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at home.
Born August 18, 1944 in Boston, MA, he was the son of the late Hamilton Alexander and Elizabeth Todd Little. On September 4, 1966 he married Janice Greenfield, who survives.
Jon also is survived by two daughters, Rebecca Elizabeth Countway and her husband Peter of Brunswick, ME, and Susanne Margaret Collins and her husband Chris of Phoenixville, PA; and three grandchildren, Garrett and Gillian Countway and Helena Collins.
Jon graduated from Bethel Park High School in 1962. He earned his bachelor's degree in Broadcasting from Penn State University in 1966 and his master's degree in Journalism from Michigan State in 1967. He served in the US Navy from 1968 to 1974, achieving the rank of Lieutenant. Jon was an Industrial Video Producer for Bethlehem Steel for 28 years, retiring in January of 2002.
Jon enjoyed traveling with family and friends, especially to vineyards in New York, Washington, Oregon, and California. He delighted in pairing food and wine and sharing his menus with others. He took great pleasure in keeping tabs on his grandchildren's activities. Other hobbies included golf, reading, catching up with canine pals during walks, and doing crossword puzzles. He was, of course, an avid Penn State fan.
