Obituary

James Isaac Whisenant, 33, of Pine Bluff passed into the arms of Jesus Sunday, May 17, 2020 while at home with his mother and father.

He was born February 9, 1987 in Little Rock. Although he suffered cerebral palsy all his life, he faced it courageously to the end. He was a blessing to all who knew him and will be missed by his family and all his caregivers.

James attended Jenkins Memorial for several years.

He was a lifelong member of First Assembly of God, attending when he could.

James was preceded in death by his loving grandparents, Bob and Rosa Nolen and Coy Whisenant.

He is survived by his parents, Leslie and Zenita Whisenant of Pine Bluff; grandmother, Dorothy Whisenant of Dublin, Texas; one sister, Liesel Cottrell (Seth) of Whispering Pines, N.C.; one brother, Zachary Whisenant of Fayetteville, Arkansas; three nephews, Caleb, Joshua and Nathan, also of Whispering Pines plus numerous uncles, aunts and cousins.

Visitation will be Tuesday from 5-7 PM at Ralph Robinson and Son Funeral Home.

Graveside services will be held at the Eastland, Texas Cemetery at 10 AM on Thursday by Edwards Funeral Home, Eastland, Texas.

James would like to remind us of Isaiah’s words, 35:5-6: Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a deer and the mute tongue shout for joy.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Jenkins Memorial Center, 2410 Rike Drive, Pine Bluff, AR 71603.
