Obituary

Robert Glen Whittaker, 35, died July 27, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Richmond, VA. Robert (Bobby) Glen Whittaker was born on July 8, 1985 in Lynchburg, VA. Bobby attended Grace Baptist School where he met the love of his life, Crystal.

Bobby had a smile that radiated pure joy. He had a sense of adventure and loved to enjoy life whether racing a four-wheeler, riding a skateboard or motorcycle, or at the beach with his wife and kids.

Bobby grew up in Chesterfield, VA and later moved to Dinwiddie County with his wife. He was a member of Southside Baptist Church and was very much loved by his pastor, Arthur Lands.

He suffered a seizure on Friday, July 24 and did not regain consciousness. Bobby is survived by his wife of 16 years, Crystal and their children, Robert Glen Jr. (Chase, 15) and Summer Day (13); his mother, Margaret Ann Whittaker; sister, Robin Rose; her husband, Michael; their children, Austin Rose and Emily Rose; and several other nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his father, Lonnie Glen Whittaker originally of Bristol, VA. Bobby knew the Lord and had no fear of death. Bobby lived his life with the confidence of trusting God as his Savior. We trust that he is reunited with his dad and many family members who went on to heaven before him.

The family will receive friends from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at Southside Baptist Church, 2007 Boydton Plank Rd. with his funeral service to be held immediately after at 4:00 pm.

  1. I love the photo Summer Day chose to remember her daddy by. Those were the days. Bobby was a true character who loved everyone and would do anything for them. He so loved his family and I had the pleasure of having lunch with he and his mom a few weeks ago and we had such a wonderful time. He surprised me and was tickled by my reaction when I saw him. I have known Bobby and Robin (his sister) since their birth and what a loving brother and sister they were. To say the very least, Bobby will be missed deeply but you can count on this.. He is with God and will never be forgotten.
    Love you angel.

  3. Crystal, I am so sorry to hear about Bobby. May you experience all the peace and comfort that only God can give. I will be praying in the coming days for you and your children.
