Duncan James Littlefield, 22, of Claremont, NH, died suddenly on Saturday night, August 13, 2016, in Claremont.
He was born in Lebanon, NH, on July 27, 1994, the son of John Holt Littlefield and Constance Kincaid-Brown. He resided in Claremont his entire life, living half-time with his mom in Lempster for a couple years in his youth. Duncan exuded compassion, exhibited high intelligence, and felt everything deeply from an early age. He spent a period of time home schooling and then attended other schools before returning to Stevens for high school. He graduated from the Stevens Claremont Alternative Program in 2011 a year ahead of his original class. That year he was also a recipient of the Mr. T award, given to students of exceptional character for perseverance and dedication to their academic and social development. For a number of years, Duncan organized and promoted local music shows in Claremont at both the Moose and Healy’s Carpet Center, insisting that these events be substance free. He was dedicated to providing a local, safe space for music and its enjoyment. He also had a great interest in cars and a wonderful sense of humor. Duncan was currently employed at the Big Lots store in Claremont as the Furniture Manager.
