Harold Lloyd Whitlock, was born to Troy Edward and Amanda Avis Greer Whitlock on November 24, 1939 in West Monroe, LA. He enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1957, and after finishing his service in the Air Force reserves, he was honorably discharged in 1962. During this time he met the love of his life and married Linda Jean Stewart on 2/1/1963. No longer able to run from his destiny of plumbing, he worked throughout North Louisiana as a journeyman plumber. He became a master plumber and opened his own business, Whitlock’s Plumbing Co., Inc. in 1981. Harold retired in 2001 and passed the labors of his hard work to the next generation. He loved to fish for white perch on the Red River in Coushatta, LA. His main passion in life became sharing Jesus with others. Not always verbally, but often through his labors of love. His mission fields were his neighbors and the community of Keithville, LA.

Dad fought the good fight and was rewarded with a homecoming celebration on May 31, 2018. Preceded in death by his parents; best friend and wife of 49 years, Linda Jean; brother, Archie E. Whitlock; and in-laws, Claude Monroe and Nola LaGene Shuff Stewart. Left here on earth to honor his memory and serve Jesus are his daughters, Julie Whitlock Smith and husband, Bobby; Tonya Whitlock Rascoe and husband Richard; grandchildren, Craig Rascoe and wife, Caitlin; Hayden Hawkins and wife, Lauren; Daniel Hawkins, Cara Rascoe David and husband Marshall; Jared Hawkins and fiancé, Brittany Kaja; Jamey Smith, Trey Smith and fiancé, Harley Bahm, and Braelyn Smith; great grandchildren, Cooper Rascoe, Beckham Smith and due November 2018, Johnathan David; brother, Robert Whitlock and wife Linda and sister, Janice Winkler and many nieces and nephews.

Honoring Harold as pallbearers will be Craig Rascoe, Hayden Hawkins, Daniel Hawkins, Jared Hawkins, Marshall David, Dan Skelton and Trey Smith.

Our Daddy was a special and unique individual with a sense of humor like none other. Two things about our dad we leave you with is that he loved his Lord and Savior and one of his favorite poems: “Love is a kindling thing, Beauty is a blossom, If you want your finger bit, Poke it at a possum”.
