Carl Alphonso (Al) LittleStar, age 86, of the Osage Nation, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 30th, 2019, in Boerne, Texas, surrounded by his family.
Al was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather who was truly loved by all who knew him. While his accomplishments were many, he will mainly be remembered for his kindness, gentleness, and faithfulness to his family and friends. A follower of Christ, Al walked the walk and showed the love of Jesus to all he encountered. The joy of his life was his wife of 68 years, Dean Rice LittleStar. From their first house with no plumbing in the Big Bend, outside of Ralston, OK, until their last home, 35 moves later, in Boerne, Texas, they proved that a home really is where the heart is, with every one of them filled with love.
From a roustabout on an oil rig in Osage County, OK, until he retired in management from Phillips Petroleum, Al taught his two sons what hard work and dedication could do, even when you didn’t start with money or a college degree. His career allowed him to live and make special friends in the many places they lived, including Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii and Perth, Australia. Al and Dean’s adventures took them around the world many times and their love of travel was contagious to their kids and grandkids.
He was born on December 16, 1932, to Mary Drymon and George LittleStar in Fairfax, Oklahoma. Al is survived by his wife Dean; two sons and their wives, Gary and Desi LittleStar, and Mark and Debbie LittleStar; four grandchildren: Christopher (Tracey) LittleStar, Erin LittleStar, Sarah (Josh) Currer, and Krissy (Nicholas) Hearn; and five great-grandchildren: Vivienne, Audrey, Silas, Maren, and Lydia.
A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, January 4th at 2 p.m. at Morningside Ministries at Menger Springs in Boerne, TX and he will be interred in Fairfax, OK in March 2020. The LittleStar family invites you to make a contribution to an organization of your choice in memory of Al and his kind, generous spirit.
