Devastating news that Mike has died.  Talked with Paul, his brother,  Mike passed quiietly in his sleep.  I was lucky to have Mike and Jan as close friends for many years and Mike since Wasatch 7th grade.  I cannot imagine life without Mike.  His warm unwavering friendship alwyas helped to get through tough times and added great value to good times.   Bon Voyage my dear friend.  You will be with me always. The great memories come flooding back.

Michael Shaw "Mike" Littlefield

March 30, 1948 - April 25, 2022

    Salt Lake City, UT -- Michael Shaw "Mike" Littlefield died Monday, April 25, peacefully at home due to multiple health issues. 

    He was born March 30, 1948, to Waldo and Afton Shaw Littlefield, the youngest of three sons. Mike grew up in the East Millcreek area of Salt Lake County and graduated in 1966 from Skyline High School, where he was known as the life of the party and made many lifelong friends.

    He graduated from the University of Utah in audiology and speech pathology and worked for 40 years in the family business, Littlefield Hearing Aids with his father and brothers Paul and Lyman. Founded by their father, Waldo, in 1946, they sold the business in 2011.

    Mike was a dedicated outdoorsman and embarked on many adventures with his many friends, including scuba diving, sailing, jeeping (particularly around the Moab area) and camping.

    Mike seemed destined to be a lifelong happy bachelor until he met the love of his life, Jan  Heinz, who had actually gone to Skyline with Mike but they barely knew each other until they met well into their 40s with a group of mutual friends. Jan had been an equally dedicated bachelorette and was a veteran airline stewardess. They eloped in 1994 and had a huge party at their newly acquired house to celebrate.

    Jan died of cancer in 2019 and Mike could never quite fill the void that left in his life afterward.

    Mike is survived by his brother Paul (Kathy), sister-in-law Margaret, three cats: Daisy, Duke and Beau; and many friends and family. He is preceded in death by his parents, Waldo and Afton Littlefield, his brother Lyman and his wife Jan.

    A celebration of life will be held Thursday, May 5, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. at Market Street Grill-Cottonwood, 2985 E. Cottonwood Parkway.

Mike was my first friend when we moved from Orem to the big city.  He sat next to to me in Mrs. Anderton's fourth-grade class at Morningside Elementary.  He was my date for graduation from Skyline, and even last week we couldn't remember how we got home.  Mike had many wonderful attributes.  But his loyalty as a friend always stood out.  I loved Mike and Jan. - How lucky I feel to have been a part of their lives.  Sweet journey my friends.
