Ronald James Whiting, Jr., passed away peacefully on January 25, 2024, at his residence surrounded by family. He was born on March 2, 1942, in Miami, FL.

He will be laid to rest with his beloved wife, Denise Whiting, at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis, MO, located at 2900 Sheridan Road, this serene setting will serve as a fitting tribute to a couple who appreciated the peacefulness nature had to offer.
