Robert Allen Whitley Jr (born c. 1948 in Birmingham is the owner of Bob Whitley Decorating Inc. at 2719 19th Place South in Homewood.

Whitley graduated from Phillips High School in 1966 and earned a bachelor's degree in history and secondary education at UAB in 1970. He taught high school history for a year before joining the U.S. Army National Guard. He left teaching to work for a paint distributor, and then was hired as a paint crew superintendent in 1975.

Whitley founded his own firm in 1977, primarily as a painter and restorer of finishes. Soon the company began taking on larger interior remodeling, deck building, repair and decorating jobs involving carpentry and other trades. Among the company's high-profile projects was the Linn-Henley Research Library.

Whitley abruptly closed his business in 2019 and relocated to Tennessee.
