2nd Lieutenant Alec Farquhar Littler
2nd Lieutenant Alec Farquhar Littler was born on April 9, 1985 to Bob Littler and Penny Farquhar in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Alec spent his childhood in Brisbane, Australia.
He returned to Glenwood with his family to attend high school. As a student body officer, mock trial participant, and member of the cross-country team, Alec loved his high school experience. He was selected to attend the United State Air Force Academy, but chose instead to enter the Air Force through the AFROTC program at the University of Colorado Boulder. After four years of leadership in Air Force ROTC, Alec achieved his dream of acceptance into the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training program. As a member of this elite group, Alec challenged himself and his flight mates to be the best.
Lt Littler perished in a training jet crash on May 1, 2008 at Sheppard Air Force Base, TX. Alec was a pilot, a mentor and a friend with a warm heart and a wry sense of humor. His commitment to those he loved was unwavering. Though his life was cut short, his passion took him from this world in the fulfillment of his greatest desire. He will be forever missed by his parents, Bob and Penny, sister, Carlyn, and brother, Pearce.
