Lattie Beard Whittemore, 60, of Arden, passed away Tuesday, December 5, 2017, following a long and courageous battle that he fought until the end.

Lattie retired after 33 years of service as a machinist at Alliance Carolina Tool & Mold. He was a member of Words Of Life Tabernacle and spent many years as Scout Master for Boy Scout Troop 26. He was an avid outdoorsman, especially enjoying going to the lake, camping and gardening. Above all else, Lattie loved his family and enjoyed every moment with them.
