James Franklin "Angel" Wilhoite II

June 10, 1994 - June 8, 2020

James Franklin Wilhoite II, aka “Angel”, left Earth for Heaven on June 8, 2020.  He was loved by many, and he loved them right back.  He was always willing to lend a hand, be a listening ear, and give advice whenever needed.  As a transgender, he fought hard for LGBTQ rights.

He leaves behind mother, Mary Hart; father, James Franklin Wilhoite; stepfather, Santiago Gomez Cardona; aunt, Jessica Carmen Hart; uncle, Manuel Robert Hart; aunt, Karen James Hart; half-brothers & half-sisters, Kenneth Hart, Robert Kirkpatrick, Preston Kirkpatrick, Skylar Wilhoite, Kayla Wilhoite, Jade Wilhoite, and Linleigh Wilhoite.

Angel was studying to become a nurse.  This was a passion obtained after watching his Abuela/Grandma suffer years of battling cancer.  He will be met in Heaven by his two Grandmothers, one Grandfather, one uncle, and other distant relatives.

Angel would listen to a variety of music and dress up as a beautiful Diva daily.  She would want everyone to be their best and most beautiful self.  Love, laugh, play and use music as your therapy.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
