Whitt passed away on June 16, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He was 69 years old. Whitt has been ill for some time, receiving care from hospitals and rehabilitation centers but spent the majority of his time at home under the care of Laura and her daughter Laurelle with the support of home health nurses. We will miss him greatly. I know you will keep Laura and her whole family in prayer. 

Funeral services have been entrusted to March Funeral Home. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the services will be televised by Zoom. I hope you all stay well, and be safe.

Linda Day,
MCEA President
