Gerry R. “Skinner” Littlefield, 91, of Tiona, Pa., died following a recent illness on Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2021, at Warren General Hospital.
Gerry was born May 18, 1930, in Warren, Pa., the son of the late Claude and Bertha Littlefield.
He worked for many years as a pipeline welder for the National Transit Company, and later Pennzoil, from which he retired.
He and his wife, who survives, were life members of the Tiona United Methodist Church. Gerry donated a lot of his time and efforts helping with projects around the church. As a man of many interests, he raced dirt track for 32 years, he enjoyed hunting, trapping, fishing, and nearly 50 years of hunting trips out west and Alaska. He had taken many elk, mule deer, antelope, and enjoyed those trips with his many friends.
He was a man that was always ready to give anyone a hand if they needed. Gerry loved his family, his friends, and especially his grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
