Whitaker was born the son of a farmer but went into painting and interior design and at 16 moved to Colorado and continued his trade. He later moved to Ventura, California and worked as a carriage painter and in 1885 moved to Santa Monica where he went into contracting and served as a street superintendent. He later purchased acres of land near Santa Monica and became one of the first to plant lima beans in the Southern part of California.
