Whiteaker was on the legal staff of Southern Bell Telephone & Telegraph for many years before retiring in 1991 as general counsel for Tennessee. He later co-founded a Nashville firm where he continued to practice for 10 years. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to Belle Meade United Methodist Church or Richland Place.
