John Whitmore

John Whitmore passed away peacefully surrounded by his immediate family and longtime friends on December 302019 at the age of 40. John was born in Washington Township, New Jersey and moved to Cape Coral at a young age when his family relocated. 

John loved spending time with his family and his friends and always made people smile.  Those closest to him will always remember his frequent use of the phrase “Yea Buddy” and his nickname “Big Bad Baby John”.  He was often seen at the gun range perfecting his shot and loved to race remote controlled cars and watching YouTube videos.

He was a loving husband and is survived by his wife, Tammy; father, Jack Whitmore; brother, Eddie Whitmore; sister-in-law, Meredith Whitmore; two nephews, Jack and Jacob Whitmore; as well as Eddie Whitmore’s extended family, many aunts, uncles and cousins.

John was preceded in death by his mother, Linda Kropp Whitmore.

An informal gathering is planned for Monday, January 6, 2020 at Rusty’s Raw Bar and Grill, 4631 SE 10th Place, Cape Coral, FL 33904 at 4:30PM to celebrate his life.

Mullins Memorial Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Cape Coral, is entrusted with final care.

    John was a good man. I knew him for many years. He and my son Don Jr. used to race model cars out of his garage. John worked for my business for a while in his younger days. I knew John to be loving, honest, and kind. He always was pleasant to be around, and never spoke badly about anyone. He will be missed. RIP John,

    A kind heart and a gentle soul. These few words best describe my nephew John Whitmore. He always told me he was doing good even when he wasn’t at his best. I have many fond momories of him growing up with our children and his other cousins. There were so many good times when the families all got together. We will all miss him dearly.
    We know that he is safe with his Mom and other family and friends that have gone before him.
    Rest in Peace John till we meet again. God bless you..
