Raymond  Whitlock, 59, of Danville, IL. passed away January 3, 2019 at home after a long battle with cancer.
 
Ray was born in Dallas, TX. to Earl and Juanita Whitlock. He married Elsa Aguirre on March 9, 1983 and they had a daughter, Rachael. He then married Bobbi Gerard on October 20, 1990. 
 
Ray is survived by his wife, Bobbi, his daughter Rachael (Lonnie) Simpson, darling granddaughter Rosalee, sisters Wanda Segraves and Linda Sanders, brothers Carl Sanders, Phillip Sanders, Daniel Sanders, John Whitlock, and Robert Whitlock, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother George Sanders, sister Barbara O' Sullivan,  his good friend and father-figure Gene Wands, and his beloved Golden Retriever, Maggie.
 
Ray worked as an electrician for 35 years and loved his job. He got a true sense of accomplishment in his work. He also loved his pets so very much. He loved to be active and work around the house. He loved home improvement projects, building things and working in the yard. He was a good, kind, and decent man and will be remembered with love and humor by all that knew him. 
 
Do not mourn his death. Celebrate a life well lived.

Rachael and Maegan,
Y'all are and always will be in my thoughts and prayers. Losing a parent is never easy and my heart aches for both of you. Please know I am always here for Y'all. Wish I could be there on Friday but just know I will be thinking of Y'all. I love Y'all. Pray is the best advice I can give right now.
