William "Frank" Whittington Sr., 76, of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, passed away, June 19, 2020, of cancer. He was born in Centerville, MS, May 4, 1944. Frank graduated from Gloster High School. He was married to Teleda Jane Campbell Whittington for 49 years. Frank served in the Army National Guard Reserves of Mississippi and was a member of First Baptist Church for 47 years. Frank worked for Lincoln Big Three which was acquired by Air Liquide for over 47 years serving in various leadership roles including Regional Manager and Vice President. Some of his favorite activities were watching and listening to LSU Sports with his headphones and enjoying his backyard full of plants and birds. However, his favorite was watching his children and his grandchildren grow up. He is survived by wife, Teleda, his daughter Heather Roberts and husband Ritch, his son Will Whittington and wife Sarah, and his daughter Janie Page and husband Justin. He was a proud Popeye "grandfather" to Libby, Chloe and David Roberts, Emma Claire and Lily Whittington, and Sadie, Bo and Anna Page. He is also survived by his sister Dorothy Hughes and brother Joe Whittington and wife Ott. Frank was preceded in death by his father and mother, James and Etta Whittington, his father-in-law and mother-in-law Ed and Bettye Campbell, and his nephews Jim and Sam Whittington. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that you make a donation to St. Joseph's Hospice or The Epilepsy Foundation. A memorial service will be held at First Baptist Church of Baton Rouge Friday, July 3, 2020, at 11am.

Dear Teleda and Family,

Janis and I are so very sorry for your loss. We truly wish we could have been at the memorial service: however, our doctors have advised us not to travel during this weird time in the history of our country. Frank provided tremendous financial support for Lincoln Big Three and was a great help in making the company one of the most successful of its kind anywhere in the U.S. His tireless support to Mr. Hodges, especially before Board meetings, was beyond exceptional. I know you all are very proud of his accomplishments. Please know that you are all in our prayers.
