Jack leaves you with his thought in his heart, “Don’t cry for me, Don’t shed a tear, for no more pain I feel, I have went on to a better place, The time I shared with you will always be, And when I’m gone, please carry on, please Don’t Cry for me, for my pain is now gone.”


Jack is survived by his two loving and faithful sons who were at his bedside during their father’s last moments on this earth: Mark Whiteaker, of Prairie du Chien, and Mike Whiteaker, of La Crosse. He is also survived by seven grandchildren: Ashley, Amber, Sara, Ethan, Dylan, Jake, Hannah; and two great grandchildren: Ava Marie, and Everly Jacqueline Rose; four sisters: Beverly George (Rodney), of Richland Center, Gwendolyn Gardner (Lynn), of Gays Mills, Sally Carlson (Curt), of Spring Green, and Claudette Behling, of Arena; three brothers: Theron Whiteaker (Bonnie Withington), of Richland Center, Thomas Whiteaker, of Muscoda, and Timothy Whiteaker, of Richland Center; and one sister in law, Cathleen Withington. Jack will be forever remembered by his numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and dear friends.


Jack joined, his son Scott Whiteaker and his brother Terry Whiteaker, his angels in heaven.
