Dennis Ray Whitman
January 1948 ~ September 2018
Dennis, age 70, passed away unexpectedly in Hilmar on September 17, 2018. He was born in Los Angeles in 1948 to Robert and Ray Jacqueline Whitman.
In 1979 Dennis came to San Francisco Teen Challenge as a student who needed to transition from San Quentin Prison, and it was there God continued the work he had begun in Dennis. A year later Dennis met his wife Jody at Courtland Church at a service. Dennis and Jody were married and celebrated over 37 years of marriage. He went on to become staff with Teen Challenge and dedicated his life to helping others find the hope in Jesus that he had experienced. Dennis served as Executive Director for many years at Teen Challenge/Faith Home Ranch in Turlock for many years until his retirement. Recently he and his wife Jody enjoyed serving at their church.
