Amy and Katherine, the world is a lesser place because of this tragedy but I know no two better people to fill that void than you both. When I first attended NWSA graduation the valedictorian said, "don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened." Cliche yes, but nonetheless true. I hope your hearts are soon at ease and life brings you everything Dr. Whitton would have wanted for you. Sincerely....

Our fathers were the best of friends, so involved with Boy Scouts, canoe trips, families, and the out-of-doors. I don't remember a time when the Whittons and Smiths were not involved with each other. My love goes out to you!

I went to Myers park High School with Robert and remember him as a warm, friendly, quiet person who always had a smile and a warm greeting for everyone. We are in the planning stages of our 50th reunion and are heart-broken that Robert will not be there to celebrate with us. We will miss him very much! Our prayers are with the family and all of his numerous friends. Truly gifted teachers are born not made and the loss of one is indeed a real tragedy! Laurin Horney Threatt, MPHS Class of 1962.

Dr Whitton will be greatly missed! If not for him, I never would have made it through calculus! He was a wonderful professor, and a very kind man.
