WHITTED, Dr. Eric A. 88, born and raised in St. Petersburg, passed away Jan. 20, 2014. He was proud of his heritage of early St. Petersburg settlers and was the nephew of Albert Whitted, the downtown airport's namesake. He retired from the Pinellas County School system as an Area Superintendent after 30 years of service. He was a dreamer, an innovative educator, a great father and grandfather, and most of all a devoted loving husband who cared for our mother during a prolonged illness. He is survived by his sister, Eleanor; son, Michael and his wife Lisa, son, Leland; daughter Laura; grandchildren, Ryan and Eric; great-grandson Kyle; and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of life service will be held at 4 Feb. 7 at Moss Feaster Funeral Home, 693 S. Belcher Road, in Clearwater. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to either the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (www.alzfdn.org) or Friends of Crystal River NWRC in Memory of Eric Whitted, 1502 SE Kings Bay Drive, Crystal River, FL 34429.
