He is preceded in death by his father Albert “Junior” Whittington. He leaves behind his wife of thirty-six years Charlene Whittington, daughter Jessica (Philip) Shaffer, mother Mary “Cookie” (Carl) Clendenin, brothers Frank (Marvalee) Whittington, Denny (Tracie) Whittington. Granddaughters Ella and Eva Shaffer.
Paul was born on April 30, 1963 in Charleston, WV and was the eldest of three brothers. He grew up in North Charleston, WV and graduated from Stonewall Jackson High School class of ’81 where he was a member of the wrestling team. Paul married his high school sweetheart Charlene on April 30, 1983. He was a loving son, husband, father and especially loved being “Pappy” to Ella and Eva. He loved the outdoors and spent many days at the camp in Pocahontas county. Paul had a constant companion in his dog Darla, she will miss him greatly.
Paul had recently retired from Laborer’s Union Local 1353, he worked on countless underground utility projects in West Virginia and the surrounding states during his nearly thirty year tenure as a foreman with Rover Construction. If you enjoy the modern convenience of city water and flushable toilets where you live, there’s a good chance that Paul had a hand in making that possible in your neck of the woods.
Paul’s earthly journey has come to an end, he’ll be deeply missed by his family and a host of friends. But we have a hope and promise of God’s word that one day, oh one day we’ll see him again!
In honor of Paul’s wishes there will be a memorial service at a later date.
"In lieu of flowers do a good turn for someone in honor of Paul"
