Robert Allen “Bobby” Whiteman, Jr., of Teague, passed away August 21, in Mexia, at the age of 58.  Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 25, at the Teague Bible Church with Pastor Jimmy Petty officiating. Interment followed in the Greenwood Cemetery in Teague. George Walter Reamy, Lance Reamy, Arnold “Pee Wee” Insall, David Angel, Devin Angel, and Dustin Angel served as pallbearers. Visitation with the family was at 9:30 a.m. prior to the service. Bobby was born April 6, 1960 in Dennison, Ohio to R.A. “Bob” Whiteman and Linda Beth Reamy Whiteman. He spent many of his younger years in Teague, where he attended Teague ISD schools. For many years, he was a heavy equipment operator working in many phases of construction, including pipelines and shut downs.  Bobby, later, switched careers and became a truck driver; his last eight years were spent driving a truck for different companies around Belton. Bobby enjoyed living in Belton, loved attending the First Baptist Church there and decided to make Belton his home. However, health reasons forced him into early retirement. He recently moved to Mexia for skilled nursing care. Family meant everything to him. Although he never had any children, his only niece, Anna Beth, was the “apple” of his eye and he couldn’t have loved her more than if she were his own daughter. Bobby was a true Christian with a big, kind and giving heart. His caring passion went out to all children, others that were less fortunate and struggling in life, and animals, especially the strays; he loved them all. He liked watching birds and keeping them fed and, also, enjoyed watching the western channel.
