Bob Whittinghill, 80, passed away peacefully on Monday, January 10, 2022. The Kyrock, KY native was a son of the late Willard Whittinghill and Janie Elzo Chambers Whittinghill. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Donna Burke Whittinghill, the love of his life; daughter, Charity Whittinghill; two brothers, Carl Whittinghill and Gary Whittinghill; and sister, Vernita Weinstein.
Bob served in the U.S. Air Force and worked in construction his entire life. Along with his twin brother, Bill, he owned and operated Whittinghill Brothers Drywall for many years. Although his specialty was drywall, he was extremely talented and could fix and do almost anything. He and Bill also founded The Best News Anywhere ministry, which consisted of The Christian Free Drive-In, a Christian video rental store, a website, and a tract campaign. In everything he did, he wanted to point others to Jesus. Bob loved to make people laugh. He was the king of corny jokes and he always had a smile on his face. He never met a stranger and to know him was to love him.
He is survived by his daughter, Sandy Hardin (Dennie) and son, Allen Whittinghill (Holly); grandchildren Shaun Whittinghill (McKenzie), Andrew Hardin, Aaron Hardin, Evan Hardin, Samantha Whittinghill, and Lila Whittinghill; sister Norma Crawford; brothers Sammy, Charles, Bill (Ruth), Glen (Sue), and Darrell along with many nieces and nephews.
Funeral Service will be held on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022 at 11am at Smith Funeral Home with Pastor Jacob Holmes and Pastor Jamie Ward officiating. Burial will be held in the Whittinghill Cemetery with the Ohio Co. Honor Guard presenting Military Honors. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 12 from 5pm-8pm and on Thursday from 10am until time of service at Smith Funeral Home.
