Jimmy Wayne Whichard, 85, of Pinetown, NC gained his heavenly wings on May 7, 2024. He was born September 16, 1938 to the late John Benjamin Whichard and Cassie Leggett Whichard. He graduated from Washington High School in 1956. Jimmy was a hard-working man who worked in all fields of management.

After retirement he enjoyed cruising, fishing, and working in his yard and garden. He was a true man of God who spent every day loving the Lord, his family, and spreading warmth and generosity to others.

He was an active member of Hunter’s Bridge Church of Christ for over sixty years, serving as a deacon and elder until health issues prevented him from attending. His sense of humor was second to none, and his presence filled the room with laughter. He was the rock of his family, the best husband, father, and papa to his grandchildren.

Jimmy is survived by the love of his life, Joyce Tetterton Whichard, his daughters Becky Whichard (Michael), Tammy Thomas (Courtlon), and Crystal Anderson (Tom), along with his grandchildren Mason Anderson, Dawn W. Alligood (Kevin), Casey Wilkins, and Skyler Woolard (Carrie); great-grandchildren Isabella Asby (Carson), Finn Wilkins, Ella Alligood, and Cooper Alligood. He is also survived by his brother Mickey Whichard and sister Judy Fulford.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his granddaughter Tiffany W. Williams, his brother Alton Whichard, and his sisters Audrey Woolard, June Cherry, Clara Williams, and Joan Gray.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service on Saturday, May 11 at 2:00pm, with a reception to follow in the same location immediately after.

Joseph B. Paul Jr. Funeral Service is honored to assist the Whichard family.

    I met Mr. Jimmy when I was a teenager. He was manager of Hardee’s in Belhaven. I applied for a job as cashier and he hired me. I had to get a work permit as that was my first “real” job. He was a mentor and was always kind to me. He was my “work” daddy. I am thankful that God opened that door for me. I am praying for all of you ❤️
