Obituary

Thomas R. Whitten (Tom), 81 of Clermont, Florida passed away on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at South
Lake Hospital in Clermont, Florida. He was born in Peoria, Illinois to Anne Hayes and Warren Whitten on
April 22, 1939. He was the eldest of two sons.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents, a daughter, Tammera J. Whitten Riden and eldest son,
Timothy Ray Whitten.

Tom is survived by his wife, Catherine (Moreland) Whitten of 39 years; his brother David (Henrietta)
Whitten of Illinois; his son, Todd (Tammy) Whitten of Illinois and his daughter Angelica (Jeffrey) Whitten
Stocks of Florida. He is also survived by six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Tom attended Woodruff High School in Peoria, IL and was a certified carpenter through the Carpenters
Local Union of Peoria. He was a custom homebuilder with Theobald & Whitten for 10 years in Peoria, IL before joining Diversified Buildings, Inc. in Morton, IL in 1975 as their first commercial superintendent.

He and Catherine moved to Sarasota, Florida in 1983 and remained in Florida for the duration of his life.
He finally retired from construction in 2013. He and Catherine decided to help people with medical hair
loss and opened Crowning Glory Clinique in Clermont, Florida to help serve the community.

During his life, Tom and Catherine dedicated 10 years to therapy dog volunteering at area nursing
homes, schools, and Give Kids the World (Make a Wish Foundation). Tom was a man of faith always
willing to serve others. He was a member of Real Life Church in Clermont, FL. He was a true family man
who loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. He also enjoyed going to sporting events
with his son-in-law, Jeff and friends.

Tom will be remembered for his generosity, beautiful smile, and his wonderful cooking skills.
Donations can be made in his memory to his favorite charity, Greater Clermont Cancer Foundation,
P.O. Box 443, Minneola, FL 34755.

A celebration of life in Tom’s honor will be held at a later date.

Tom's funeral arrangements are in the caring guidance of Winter Oak Funeral Home, Winter Garden, FL.

Tom's smile was the first thing we noticed when he welcomed us to our small life group. Then we look forward every week to see what delicious meal he would bring to our potluck group. The Christmas parties were memorable. Tom and Catherine attended my daughter's 1st birthday party too. I was so happy to see him at Real Life, Clermont the night Mandy Harvey performed. He was looking for Catherine and we happened to bump into him outside the sanctuary. Tom is rejoicing with Jesus and we are grateful to have the hope to see him again one day. 1 Thessalonians 4:17. We love you Catherine.
