Leslie A. Whitt

January 24, 1959 — December 8, 2020

Shelby

Leslie Alan Whitt, 61, died on December 8th, 2020, in Great Falls after a long and brave battle with Multiple Sclerosis. Les was born on January 24, 1959 in CutBank, to Sid and Dolores Whitt. He grew up in Kevin and graduated from North Toole County High School in Sunburst in 1977.

Les worked in the Great Falls area as a freelance carpenter and as a cabinet maker at Modern Cabinet until his disease made work too difficult.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Sid and Dolores Whitt, and by his grandparents. He is survived by his three daughters, Liz (Kyle) Storck of Kirkland, Washington, Aly (Tim) Whitt of Boise, Idaho, and Kate Whitt of Great Falls; and his ex-wife, Velma Whitt of Great Falls; his brothers, Randy Whitt of Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, Dave (Donna) Whitt of Shelby; his sister, Valorie (John) Sveum of Great Falls; along with many nieces and nephews.

Les loved sharks and the Seattle Seahawks, but what he was most proud of were his three adventurous, globe-trotting daughters. He will always be remembered for his sassy sense of humor and big blue eyes.

Les will be laid to rest next to his Grandma Ethel in a family ceremony on Friday, December 11, at 1pm at Mountain View Cemetery. Social distancing protocol will be enforced.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

The family would like to thank all the nurses, doctors, and friends who took such good care of Les throughout his life. Memorials in Les’s name can be made to the M.S. Foundation or a charity of your choice.
