He was a son of the late Lee and Flora Wilhoit and was preceded in death by sisters: Nebraska Wilhoit, Letha Wilhoit, Lyda Wilhoit, and Blonda Snapp; and a niece: Jo "Phyllis" Broyles.

The family will receive friends from 4-8 p.m. today at Jeffers Funeral & Cremation Service, Afton Chapel, with the funeral service following at 8 p.m. in the chapel. The Rev. Lynn Neas and Zak Neas will officiate.

Pallbearers will be John Morelock, Ted Wilhoit, Bob Shaw, Joe Brown, Frank Mitchell, and Denver Shaw.
