Lee Powell Whittington

Lee Powell Whittington, 65, Logansport, passed away unexpectedly Friday, March 29, 2013, in his home.

Born Sept. 19, 1947 in Brazil, he was the son of the late John “Jack” and Constance “Connie” Powell Whittington. On July 3, 1974, in Rochester, he was married to Cheryl K. (McVay) Whittington, who survives.

Lee graduated from Logansport High School in 1966 and University of Texas in 1970 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

Lee began working for Rockwell International in 1970 before it later became Matthew-Warren Spring Division where he was currently the Purchasing Manager.

Lee was a proud member of the Univeristy of Texas Alumni association, the Texas Exes and enjoyed watching their football and basketball games. As a Boiler Dad, he also watched the Boilermakers in basketball and football and was eager for another season of Cardinals baseball. Lee had a love for music, especially Bruce Springsteen and a curiosity for science fiction.

Surviving with his wife are daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer Lee and Benjamin Thomas Rotz, Sydney, Australia; sister, Lynne Whittington, Sheridan, Wyo.; and two grandchildren, Abigail Lee and Jack Thomas Rotz, both of Sydney, Australia.

Friends may call from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Thursday in Fisher Funeral Chapel. At 11 a.m., the funeral procession will leave for Ever-Rest Memorial Park chapel where a service, officiated by Pastor William Cortis, will be at 11:30 a.m. Interment will follow in Ever-Rest Memorial Park.
