BRYANT — Lehman Lanier “Whitt” Whittington,
age 85, went to be with the Lord on Friday, May 1, 2020. He was born October 14, 1934 to Nash and Hazel Hutcheson Whittington in Banks, Arkansas.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 51 years, Carolyn Hightower Whittington and children Jan Whittington, Andrew (Carla) Whittington, and Joseph Whittington. Two brothers; Loyd (Cherry) Whittington and Paul ( Beverly) Whittington. One sister Vivian Whittington Baker (Arnold), two grandchildren; Lily and Lucy Robinson and several nephews and nieces.
