NAYLOR’S BEACH—Henry Alton “Al” Whitlock Jr. died early Saturday, July 20, at his home at Naylors Beach. His wife Kathryn was by his side.
He was predeceased by his parents Henry Alton Whitlock Sr. and Marie Solari Whitlock; as well as sister Jeanne.
A native of Virginia, he was born and raised in Richmond. He graduated from Benedictine High School where he was on the only all-state winning football team Benedictine ever fielded. After graduation he went to Belmont Abbey College outside Charlotte, N.C.
Professionally he worked in outside sales most of his career, with time split between Southern California and the Richmond area.
An avid golfer he had great successes and great frustration with the game.
With an incorrigible wit and a fast smile he could always tell a good story. He had great ties to his family and that was why he returned to the Richmond area since he loved his California years.
A celebration of his life will take place in September. For information please contact Kathryn.
He will be sorely missed.
Welch Funeral Home-Marks Chapel handled the arrangements.
