Jackie,
Many thoughts, prayers & condolences go out to you and family. I was very saddened to hear of your father's demise. He was like a father to me and always gave wonderful advice, suggestions when needed. He was an absolute gem, he loved you & mom so very much. There were times also when he was quite humorous. I loved walking with him in the neighborhood when he was in his power chair. He so loved that! Lots of great memories during these past 5-6 years of knowing him. He will forever have a corner of my heart, he was loved very much by all. Loved him dearly and will miss his presence on this physical plane. May God rest his soul...rest in peace Mr. Whitney.

My mentor when I was starting my work career in early 60s.
He hired me for the warehouse while I was going to school and then promoted me to assistant manager in Battle Creek. I remember great golf games at laurel golf course and his great support for the Jaycees. Great man, leader and friend. I owe the start of my working career to mr Whitney.

I went to work for Mr. Whitney out of high school in 1964 at Stanley Home Products. He was a nice boss and I was his secretary for several years, among other jobs there. My sincere sympathy for his family!
