Harry Huxley “Huck” Littlejohn, age 91, passed away at UHS Wilson Memorial Hospital on Thursday, July 19, 2018. He was predeceased by his parents, Archie and Bessie (Casey) Littlejohn of Manhattan, NY. He is survived by his wife, Carole (Nogaret) Littlejohn, a son, M. Casey Littlejohn, and a daughter, Christine Kelsey, and five grandchildren, Chelsea, Kara, Ryan, Samantha, and Sawyer, with a great grandchild blessing the way. Huck was employed by Magic City Milk Co., Endicott Forging Works, Link Aviation, and retired from IBM, FSD, Owego in 1986 after 47 years of service. Huck was an avid aviation pilot at Tri-Cities Airport, earning his pilot’s license in 1944 at the age of 14. He spent every minute he could in the air and in volunteering in aviation activity for his entire life. Huck enlisted in the Navy in 1945, at the age of 17 and served in the Pacific Theater, and in 1948 in Korea on various ships, including the USS Midway, the USS Wright, and the USS Wisconsin. He will be missed by the entire “Aviation Family” of New York State. There wasn’t an airport or airplane that he couldn’t tell you about. He also was the first pilot to land at Broome County Airport, and also to win the “Flying and Spot Landings”, with Dave Jones, Aviation Flight Examiner.
The family will receive friends at the Allen Memorial Home, 511-513 East Main Street, Endicott, on Thursday from 1-3 pm, with full military honors being accorded at the Allen Memorial Home at 3 pm. Any expressions of sympathy may be made in Huck’s name for the future of “Aviation”.
