Marvin Webb Whitt, 86, passed away Tuesday morning August 28, 2018. He was born in Granville County, the son of the late Evie Sue Davis Whitt and Hester Thomas Whitt. He was preceded in death by a great grandson; Brahm Copeland Scarpace and by his wife; Patsy Pearce Whitt.
Mr. Whitt was a member of the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg. He was a member of North Raleigh Chapel. He was a hardworking man and loved the Lord, his wife Patsy and his two girls dearly. He also treasured his relationships with his grandchildren, great grandchildren and his brothers and sisters.
He loved the outdoors; camping, boating, skiing, NASCAR, tree service and just tinkering around. His girls say, “there was nothing Daddy could not fix.”
He longed to be back with his true love, Patsy, again in heaven, but he will be truly missed here until we meet again on those heavenly streets of gold.
Love & miss you so much Daddy….
