Allan Lee “Mouse” Litton, age 62, of Belle, passed away Thursday, September 16, 2021. Allan was born August 29, 1959, in Jefferson City, the youngest son of Paul Leavern and Fern Alene (Jones) Litton. At a young age, he was given the nickname Mouse and that was how he was best known.
Mouse drove a dump truck for Litton Trucking, the family business. Later, he worked the Gasconade River oil spill clean-up and worked outages at the Callaway Nuclear plant. He was proudly employed as manager at Stickle Farms for many years. Mouse enjoyed hunting, fishing, and playing pool with his friends. An avid animal lover, he spoiled countless pet cats and dogs over the years. Mouse had an unforgettable, infectious laugh and loved telling stories to his friends and family. It will be hard for anyone that knew and loved him to not remember a funny story involving him and even harder to contain a smile or laugh while doing so.
The last few years, Mouse’s health had declined and he often had to rely on the assistance of family and friends. Thankfully, Mouse was blessed with many of both. Whether you brought him something he needed, took him somewhere he needed to go, or just answered the phone or message he sent, it was appreciated. Mouse was especially blessed to have a close relationship with his great-nephew KC Newton and family, Emily, Gage, Brady and Bailey.
Those left to mourn Mouse include his siblings: Carol Sue Rose, Belle; Bernie (Mitzi) Litton, Bland; Mark (Terri) Litton, Belle; and brother-in-law Danny Redel, Freeburg. Mouse is also survived by his many nieces and nephews, great-nieces and nephews and great-great nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his aunts, Wilma Nash, Delma Roellig, and Mary Ridenhour, along with many cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, sister Neva Gene Redel, brother-in-law Tim Rose, nephew Dusty Redel, niece Paula Sue Jones, and great-nephews Eddie Jones and Dylan Nichols.
Private family graveside services and a celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made to the family to go towards a monument or in Mouse’s honor to a non-kill animal shelter.
