Memorial services for Chance Whitten will be held Friday, May 24, 2024, at 2:00 p.m. at Rose Neath Funeral Home Chapel in Minden, Louisiana. 

Chance was born May 29, 1980, in Shreveport, Louisiana and he achieved his peace and rest May 11, 2024, in Claiborne Parish at his residence following a car crash. 

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Ruby J. Evans of Bogalusa, Louisiana and his paternal grandparents Blanche and Marvin Whitten of Bossier, Louisiana. 

He is survived by his sons Xavier Whitten and Lucas Whitten of Doyline, Louisiana; their mother Nancy Maxwell Hilton of Doyline; his mother and step father Deborah and Scott Chester of Minden, Louisiana; sister Jessica Hatchett Loveland and brother-in-law Steve Loveland, nephew and niece Henry and Nora, all of Plainville, Connecticut.

Aunt and Uncle Linda and Jeff Pevy of Minden, Louisiana; Uncle Charles “Charlie” Evans of Bogalusa, Louisiana.

His father Phillip Whitten Sr of Bossier, Louisiana; Aunt and Uncle Linda and Johnny Ray Ferguson of Princeton, Louisiana; Aunt Kathy Whitten of Bossier, Louisiana; Uncle Mickey of Texas. Also numerous cousins, friends, wrestling buddies and co-workers. 

Chance had a long career in semi-pro wrestling and construction, security, and had just begun his career as a correctional officer in law enforcement. 

Chance never met a stranger and had opened his heart and home to many people. He had an infectious laugh and quick wit. 

His greatest loves in life were his two sons…Xavier and Lucas. He said he knew what unconditional love was because of his boys. He was also very proud of the young men they had become…Xavier as a GMSR in the Navy and Lucas graduating with honors and about to begin his career as a welder. He also deeply loved his Mother and often said she was his “rock”.

Chance will be greatly missed by family and friends.
