Don Whitney - In Memoriam (1925-1998)

Dad passed away from complications due to Myelodisplastic Syndrome on July 9, 1998. He had a full life, and was at peace at the end. At his Memorial Service, exerpts from his autobiography were read. Following the service, we had a number of people ask for copies, so that is why I eventually published them by starting this website. We invite you now to learn more about his life and humerous stories.
