Stephen Ranzini, University Bank president and chief executive officer, released a statement on Little's death Wednesday afternoon, saying, "“We are devastated by the loss of our director, Dave Little.”
Little, a graduate of Manchester High School and Eastern Michigan University, was village president of Manchester from 1970-1978, according to information provided by University Bank.
He also was chairman of the Manchester Village Planning Commission from 1966 to 1970; was a member of the Washtenaw County Metropolitan Planning Commission including two years as chairman (1966-1969); and served the longest ever serving member of the Washtenaw County Parks Commission (1969-1999).
Little also was active in nonprofit activities, serving as president of each of the Manchester Jaycees, the Manchester Optimist Club and the Emanuel Church of Christ Board. He was also the founder and president of the Manchester Community Resource Center, which was formed in response to the closing of a major local employer.
