Obituary for Phillip Daniel "Danny" Whitt

Tuesday, May 15th Phillip Daniel (Danny) Whitt lost his battle with failing health. He was born on Jewel Ridge to Sam and Hazel Whitt on August 2nd, 1943. He was a spirited child, grew up to be an accomplished business man who wore many hats over the course of his life, ranging from Sales to Mining which opened the door to many other opportunities such as breeding, raising and racing thoroughbred horses.

At the young age of 21, he married the love of his life, Peggy Ann Peak. Over the course of their 55 year marriage they raised 2 children, Samantha Beth, and Phillip Daniel. He was the proud grandfather of 4, William Michael (Cody) Wiley, Daniel Logan Whitt, Houston Kyle Land, and Hannah Nicole Whitt. 1 Great-Grand daughter, McKinnley Ayla Wiley.

He was a loving brother to Victoria (Joan) Booher, the late Rudy Glenn Whitt, and the late Judy Lynn (whitt) Folgleman. Multiple nephews and nieces whom he loved dearly.

He was an avid fisherman and golfer until his health prevented him from doing the things he loved. His zest for life continued in his later years enjoying the simpler things, Family, Friends, and LAWN CARE! He jokingly commented he was glad he did everything he wanted to do when he was younger and lived his life with No regrets. Whatever he did, he did it with a PASSION. He cherished his family and friends and enjoyed reminiscing with life-long friends, and creating new memories. Always eager to help a friend in need and always put others before himself. He was quick witted and always had a mischievous twinkle in his eyes.

He will be sorely missed by loved ones and close friends. He wouldn’t want them to grieve, instead he would want you to cherish and remember the times and experiences he shared with each and every one of you. Like he always said, "KEEP YOUR SOCKS UP AND YOUR LIPS MOIST."

Celebration of Life will be Saturday, June 2nd at 1 pm at his home. Family and Friends welcome to attend and share memories.
