Our family has been clients of Doug’s team for over ten years. We first met Mr. Whiteneck and then Doug. The nicest people one could ever meet. We will truly miss Doug. Our sincere condolences to the Whiteneck family as well as Mario and all the Tire Pros team.

Our business community has lost a true friend to many people. I have had the privilege to have Doug as a friend and will miss our time spent rationalizing the tire business. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and his employees as I know they all loved him very much.
We will see each other again in the next life so farewell until we meet again my friend!
