Aug. 17, 2011 Miriam and the entire Whitman family. I found out about Bob's passing today, having been out of town. I have manny memories of Bob. He was one of my Metairie High heroes when I was young. When I worked with him at E.J. he was honest, firm, and always enthusiastic. He will be missed by the many students, players, and co-workers he influenced. Besides that he was a Marine. Agood man's passing brings sadness, but also happiness. He's gone to a better place, but we have the pleasure of having known him. Please accept our condolences. Frank and Susan Dalferes Covington, La.

Aunt Mim & the Whitman Family,
I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Bob. He was truly a great man. In a world where it seems that everyone is looking out for themselves, he was a thoughful & selfless man. He always looked out for the other guy & his family. He was so good to my dad when he was coming to the end of his days here with us. I cannot thank him enough for his kindness. I know dad always thought of him as a special friend, and that they are together again. I will always cherish the memories of growing up with the Whitman's, the Benson's, the Garrity's & the Gandolfi's. Those were great days. Please know that my thoughts & prayers are with you all at this most sorrowful time. If there is anything that I can do please do not hestate to call on me. May God bless & sustain you all.

Coach Whitman was a fine coach and gentleman. At EJ, you could be 3rd. or 4th. string and Coach always let you know that you were important to the team.
I had the good fortune to see him many times at Manresa...I will always cherish my memories of this good man. I know that God has blessed him.

Bob and "Murph", and the entire Whitman family... We are sorry to hear about "the loss" of your father, but boy, heaven got "the win". We were unable to attend his funeral and mass, but wish to express our sympathy to each of you. Although, we did not know your father personally, it's obvious, not only did he touch all of your lives, he had an enormous impact on many. HEAVEN, just received its best SCOUT!
