Reginald Whitehurst | Obituary

His father was Reginald Eugene Whitehurst Sr. and his mother was Valeria Lee Rhodes Whitehurst. Born in Norfolk, Virginia, but called South Mills, North Carolina, home. His father was in the Coast Guard so they moved around a bit but ended up settling in South Mills.

Survived by his wife and high school sweetheart Gloria “Gae” Whitehurst, his sisters Decilia Dozier and Patricia Markham; and their 7 daughters: Gloria, Mary, Lisa, Melinda, Bonnie, Paula and Brandi. His legacy lives on through his 14 grandchildren and 9 greatgrandchildren.

Reggie served honorably in the US Air Force between 1961-1965.

He owned and operated a donut shop in Renton, Washington called “Chuck’s Donuts”. He retired to Othello, Washington and loved the view off his back porch. He loved to joke around and telling stories about his adventures and all the funny and crazy things he had seen and done for fun. He was the kind of man who would give the shirt off his back to make sure someone else was taken care of and always putting others first. He valued hard work, innovation and leaving things better than you found them. He loved tending to his garden, working around the house, and traveling around with his wife and dog when he was able to.

Reggie’s funeral will be Saturday January 22, 2022 at 11:00 am; at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints at 357 Christensen RD Othello, WA 99344.

There will be a viewing for 45 minutes before the funeral.

Then we will go to the cemetery located at 900 Apple Ave NE, Royal City, WA 99357 where Reggie will receive military honors and be laid to rest.
