Now on to his family life: Bill has been married to the love of his life, Jan Allen Whitley, for 64 years. Together they raised three wonderful children: Gwen Midkiff, Teri Duncan, and Bryan Whitley. Billy is survived by his children, their spouses Alvin Midkiff, Mark Duncan, and Denise Whitley, 7 grandchildren, and 12 great-grandchildren, and sister Roxy Stephens of De Queen, Arkansas. He was preceded by his brother, Jerry Dwight Whitley, and a granddaughter Jill Delaine Midkiff. Take one look at Bill’s children and grandchildren and you will see the impact his teaching and serving others had on them. All three of his children went on to also teach - Bryan is a Health and Physical Education teacher and coach and Gwen and Teri both worked as paraprofessionals to teach special education children. The countless hours Bill spent helping his grandkids with their English homework helped them also find careers teaching and serving others. • Derek - executive director for the railroad • Jesse - police sergeant • Luke – supervisor • Delaine - lawyer and teacher • Emilie – nurse • Trent – engineer • Taylor – teacher
