Thomas “Tiplite” Whitting, the son of the late David Whitting and the late Susie Walton.  He began his life’s journey on August 15, 1928, in Dawson, Terrell County, Georgia.

Realizing that God would be the foundation of his life, Thomas confessed his love for Christ at an early age.

On Wednesday, April 18, 2018, our dear Thomas departed his early life for sweet eternity with his Creator at Dawson Health and Rehabilitation Center, where he enjoyed and called his home.  In the midst of sorrow, we give thanks to God for the many years, 89, he allowed us to share with “Tip”.  We realize that God is too wise to make any mistakes
