Birth: Dec. 24, 1933
Death: Jul. 30, 2007

Gordon O. Whitehead Jr. passed away on Monday, July 30, 2007, at a local care center with his family by his side. Military graveside honors will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 2, 2007, at Wortham Bend Cemetery. Visitation will be Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m. at OakCrest Funeral Home, 4520 Bosque Blvd.

Gordon was born in Waco, Texas, to Leona Mae and Gordon O. Whitehead Sr. He attended Waco Tech, graduating in 1952, and enjoyed the reunions with his classmates over the years since their graduation. Gordon was a U.S. Marine stationed in Korea. He eventually returned to Waco and married Michaelette "Mike" Heath, having four children. Gordon was a letter carrier, and after he retired, he worked at the Mitchell Station. He will be forever missed by a multitude of people, from all walks of life, for many different reasons.

He was preceded in death by his wife, "Mike"; son, Brian Kelly Whitehead; and a son-in-law, Ernest White.

Left to miss him most are his children, Debbie White, of Speegleville, Denise Miller and husband, Steve, of Bosqueville, Gordon Christopher Whitehead, of Bosqueville; grandaughters, Charlana Jo Byant, and Danielle Gardner, of Bosqueville, Allison Martin and husband, Brent, of San Antonio, and Kelly Brianne Whitehead, of Oklahoma; grandson, Jeremy Schultz, of Bosqueville; great-grandson, Kevin Wayne Tatum, Jr.; brother, Bill Whitehead and wife, Sue, of Waco, and a number of other relatives; his ole' buddy, Bill Donaldson and wife, Joan, who were always more than just lifelong friends. Gordon had many neighborhood buddies, you know who you are, and a very special friend, Georgia Ross and husband, Butch.
