Terry Gordon Whitsitt

The funeral will be live-streamed here.

Terry Gordon Whitsitt, age 74, of Ft. Duchesne, passed away July 30, 2021, at his home after a battle with kidney cancer.
He was born September 14, 1946, in Vancouver, Washington, to Phil and Dorothy Bacon Whitsitt. He married Linda Kay Stewart in 1966, in Los Angeles, California. She passed away May 29, 2015.
In his younger days, Terry had worked as an actor in a couple of films, some TV, and theater. He then worked in fiberglass manufacturing and was currently a website designer, mostly for Christian web pages. He loved the Lord and served him faithfully with many different ministries. He was currently dedicated to the Roosevelt Christian Assembly. He found great joy in talking about the Lord and helping those in need – skills that came in handy with his volunteer work, “Chat About Jesus,” a phone service that people could call into just to have someone to talk to. Other pastimes included watching television and classic movies, and he had even written a column for “Simply Seniors,” a senior citizen’s magazine entitled, “Classic Movie Corner.” He was trained to be a clown by Vince “Pinto” Colvig, the original “Bozo, The Clown.”
Terry is survived by his two sons, Andrew “AJ” (Amanda) Whitsitt, Ft. Duchesne; Micah (Chelsea) Whitsitt, Kearns; grandchildren, Kaylee Burgess; Isabella Whitsitt; David, Jeremy, & Ronald Dickison; Victoria Steele; great-grandchildren, Milenko, Moku, Tempest & Zion.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Linda; daughter, Kimberly Steele; and his parents.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, August 9, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at the Roosevelt Christian Assembly (870 E 200 N). There will be a viewing at the church on Monday from 9:30-10:45 a.m.
Burial will be in the Roosevelt Memorial Park.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. I didn't know Terry well but he welcomed me into his home when my life was in shambles and the love I felt while there gave me clarity.
Though life is a trial AJ and Amanda are shining examples of God and Terry`s everlasting life and love.
I love you guys.

Terry had such a great sense of humor, and jokes. He once told me about how he met his wife, and that she reminded him so much of his ex wife, he had to marry her (wife and ex were the same person). He also had some awesome T-shirts like his "want to "taco" about god". Terry, your stories and humor will be missed. You were a great man.

Both Linda and Terry have held a very special place in my heart. Their presence and their online ministries is how I became acquainted and I continue to hold them, each, in highest regard. The crosses they've both had to bear was, at times, vexing, causing each of us who know them to ask serious questions. Like: "Why God?" "How God?" The answers are as hard as the questions but, at the end of the day, we ALL have crosses to bear.
Jesus said "Pick up your crosses, daily, and follow Me." Linda and Terry exemplified that. Some days joyfully. Some days willingly. Some days begrudgingly. Other days,... It was our job to come along side and help ease their burdens. To encourage, to comfort, to console. Terry's race is won and he is reunited with the love of his life. His sorrows are forgotten. His pain, not even a memory. But for those who remain, who sorrow, who grieve, who already miss terribly both Terry and Linda. I extend my hand. I have the distinct honor and privilege of meeting Micah and "friending" AJ and I send them my love, with my condolences. To any other family members I extend my heartfelt wishes that you do not sorrow so deeply that you forget where Terry and Linda are right now, but that you look forward to our soon being together again. Linda would want you to know that "Prophecy is on the move", the Promise and Blessed Hope that we have in Christ is imminent. Terry? God bless you brother. I love you and, again, am so sorry for the perceived injustices in life. I know all your questions are answered now. Your race is won. Eternity has begun and you have your crowns. I must say,... I am happy for you and sad for us but glad to be able to call you friend.
