Mr. Whitehouse was born August 28, 1938 in Hornersville, MO to the late Chester and Mattie (Thorn) Whitehouse. His stepfather was the late Marshal Jarvis.
On February 15, 1992, Danny was married to M. Genell (Miller) Mitchell in Doniphan. She survives. He was a very loving and caring husband to her for 29 years.
Danny was a member of Oak Ridge Church of God at Briar, MO. Danny was a man that always said he loved to work. So, he did a lot of that. He was a welder, plumber, electrician, machinist, and carpenter. He helped build one of the two F.E.M.C. Corp factories, the one built in Coachella, CA. He worked as a maintenance man as well as a foreman until he was hurt in an accident and had to retire in 1972. Danny then moved to Doniphan. Danny helped build the Pine and Bardley Fire House and assisted on fire calls until failing health forced him to stop. He served as road commissioner for several years. Through the years Danny had also owned and ran two gas stations. Unfortunately, Danny was ill for several years before his passing.
In addition to his wife, Danny is survived by his daughter, Vickey (Leroy) McCrary of Richwood, MO; a stepsister, Judy (Ray) Leroy; stepbrother, Kenny (Trudy) Jarvis of Brooksville, FL; his grandchildren, Karen (Tim) Hardgrave of Doniphan, Kimberly Kelso of O’Fallon, MO, Todd (Jennifer) Hardgrave of Blue Springs, MO, and Paul Hardgrave; as well as 10 great-grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren.
