Thomas Joseph Whitehair
July 15, 1956 - May 1, 2017

Our Beloved brother, Thomas Joseph Whitehair, went home to be with the Lord on May 1, 2017. Born July 15, 1956, he was 60. He died suddenly at home while under the trees he loved and cared for at our parents homestead, which he lovingly took care of all the years of his life. He was a rancher, a good son, a wonderful brother, friend to many and loved by many, a wonderful caretaker of our five kitties, faithful to Jesus, and a kind and quiet soul. He attended services at Calvary Chapel Chino Valley and Chino Hills. He lived at home with his sister who helped take care of him but he always was watching over her too.

He was born in Pomona and lived in Chino. He went to school at St Margarets and Chino High School and graduated midyear to join the Army. He was stationed at both Fort Bragg and Fort Ord and took part part in the Reforger Exercise in Germany. He obtained the rank of Specialist Fourth Class and earned the National Defense and Good Conduct medals. He was awarded the Sharpshooter badge.

He helped take care of the farm and our parents. He also worked several jobs, including as a gardener and a machinist. Our parents always said they would not have been able to live in their home forever if Tom had not been there helping them.

He was preceded in death by his beloved mother, Florence Whitehair, and his father, Earl Whitehair and a sister who died prematurely. He is survived by his siblings, Robert Whitehair and wife Teri, Barbara Whitehair, John Whitehair, Susan Whitehair Lingenfelder and husband Mark, and Maggie Whitehair.

A celebration of life will be held at Draper Mortuary on Monday, May 22, 2017 and burial with military honors will be immediately after at Belleview Memorial Park. Our brother is at peace and happy now with his Lord so please wear bright or white colors to celebrate his going home. Please see the Draper website for more on his life.
