OBITUARY: Steven Wayne ‘Tubby’ Whittington


Steven Wayne Whittington, known affectionately as “Tubby”, left us on May 1, 2024, leaving a void in the hearts of all who knew him.

He was born on April 19, 1980, and lived a life filled with love, laughter, and selflessness.

Tubby’s impact on those around him was profound. His loving nature and kind spirit made him someone who was always there to lend a helping hand. He adored his children and had a special way of making everyone feel seen and cherished. Whether he was playing pranks as the family jokester or cooking up a storm in the kitchen, Tubby’s presence brought joy to all those who were lucky enough to know him.

One of Tubby’s greatest qualities was his selflessness. He was a caregiver at heart, always putting the needs of others above his own. His adventures with Mutt were legendary, and their Saturdays were filled with laughter and fun.

One thing remained constant – his ability to be a true friend to all. He had a way of making everyone feel valued and appreciated, a rare gift that endeared him to countless individuals. He was truly a friend everybody would want.

Visitation was on Sunday, May 05, 2024 from 10:00 AM – until time of services. Funeral Service began at 2:00 PM on Sunday, May 05, 2024 from the Chapel of Spann Funeral Home with Bro. David Mackens officiating. Interment Lone Oak Baptist Church Cemetery.

The world is a little dimmer without Tubby’s infectious laugh and big heart. As we gather to remember him at Spann Funeral Home in Dickson, TN, let us celebrate the life of a man who touched so many with his kindness and generosity.
