Michael "Mike" Whiteaker passed away July 9, 2023. He was born on September 6, 1955, in Racine, WI to the late Marion Lyle and Henrietta Adell Chase Whiteaker. Mike was a history buff and spent much time learning about World War II. He worked as a press operator at Milwaukee Tools, where he retired after forty years. Mike had a tough exterior and enjoyed gangster movies, however, once you learned who he was, you’d find that he was a teddy bear at heart and was a giving and patient man.
In addition to his parents, Mike is preceded in death by his sisters, Lorna Jean Childress and Lavonne Whiteaker; brothers, Lawerence Whiteaker, Milton “Larry” Whiteaker, William “Bill” Whiteaker and Monte “Butch” Whiteaker.
He is survived by his wife of 16 years, Paula Whiteaker, and several nieces and nephews.
