John Anthony Whitehurst, age 47, was many things to many people; Loving Husband, Father, and Papa, business owner, competitor, strong shoulder, and loyal friend. His love and charming personality touched the hearts of thousands. John battled kidney disease for many years and was given a second lease on life with a kidney donation from a wonderfully generous friend. He also had several back surgeries and a recent diagnosis of diabetes. John had his struggles, but still kept his zest for life and the people in it. John was one of those guys that lived his life to the fullest. He used his second life paying it forward. He was always the first to help the people he cared for whether it would be advise, a shoulder to cry on , a helping hand, or just someone to make you laugh and enjoy your day just a little more. John was always generous with his heart, his time, and his relentless vigor for life.
John's sudden and unexpected passing has brought many challenges to his family financially and otherwise. the recent diagnosis caused the life insurance to be dropped leaving no help financially. Now it is our chance to thank and support John and his family for everything he and his family has been to all of us. Donations will be used for funeral expenses and any other unexpected needs. The love we show for this hard working family will be more than appreciated. The friends and family of John Whitehurst thank you all from the bottom of their hearts with any help you can provide.
John Whitehurst Memorial service will be Saturday September 15th 3:00pm at Church of christ in Prineville,Oregon. If you have a picture you want to share please print it so we can share at the service. Thank you all for your kind words & Prayers. Those of you that know us know our hearts are in a million pieces & my soul left with John.
