Obituary for Larry Dean Whetstone

Before sunrise on Thanksgiving morning, Heaven celebrated the homecoming of Larry Dean Whetstone. Larry impacted countless people during his lifetime with kindness, generosity and compassion. Wife Carolyn and their four children, Cheryl (and Jim) Guffey, Donna (and Craig) Kelley, Kim (and Dan) Meador and David Whetstone, are honored to carry on Larry's legacy.

Larry was born in Buckland, OH to Jesse and Mary Whetstone who predeceased him along with his brothers, Don, Bob and sister Georgene. His surviving brother, Jim, lives in Ohio near the Whetstones' large extended family.

Larry Whetstone graduated from Buckland High School in 1959, attended Ft. Wayne Bible College where he met and later married his love, Carolyn Hankey. Larry played guard on the college basketball team and he played trumpet with a Christian ensemble that played at local churches. He furthered his education at both Indiana University and Purdue University. Larry's successful career in the insurance business spanned 40 years until his retirement in 2013 from Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company.

If one could capture the essence of Larry Whetstone, it would be said that he lived life large, he adored and honored his wife for 56 years, Carolyn, he was proud of his children and their unique accomplishments, he treasured his grandchildren, Tami, Kyle, Joshua, Paiten, Spencer, Logan, Chandler and great grandchildren, Kendal, Riley, Anniston and Samson, and he cared for people by sharing the heart of Christ whenever and wherever he met them. Larry will be deeply missed.

A memorial service is scheduled at the Whetstones' church, Canadian Hills Church of the Nazarene, on Sunday, 11/26/17 at 3:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that in memoriam donations be made to their church or to The HUB Mission Ministry, Larry's daughter's faith-based charity in Mustang.
