Marrell Whitman Obituary

Marrell Whitman, 92, of Notasulga passed away on December 19, 2023. He was born February 16, 1931, to Alonza and Irene Whitman. He grew up on a farm working the fields everyday along with his nine brothers and sisters. He attended Notasulga High School where he was the quarterback of the football team. He married his high school sweetheart, Jane Freeman, and they celebrated 60 years of marriage before her death in 2011. He is survived by his four children: Rebecca Seale, Priscilla Hall, Ben Whitman (Gail), and Mike Whitman (Mona), along with ten grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

 

He owned several grocery stores before achieving his life-long dream of opening his own car lot. Marrell was a long-time member of the Notasulga Methodist Church. He served as Volunteer Fire Chief of the Notasulga Fire Department. He was a member of The Lions Club in Notasulga and Luverne, Alabama. He served on the City Council and as Mayor of Notasulga as well as being on the Board of Directors at the Bank of Notasulga.

 

He loved buying and refurbishing antique cars, Auburn football, country music, and having all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren around him. Granddaddy was and always will be the rock of our family and will be greatly missed.
