To witness Granny and Grandfather Withers together was such a joy. What they shared will always be a model of love and devotion, and I feel blessed for knowing both of them. Grandfather's hugs and smiles made everyone feel special and loved. He is truly an angel among us. My sincere condolences to all of the family.

Mrs. Withers, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Neil and I had the pleasure of meeting you both through mom and dad (Effie and Paul Cato) back in 1990. Colonel Withers will be greatly missed and his smile forever remembered!

Dave Withers, may the good Lord restore you soon to the powers of your youth  so that you may be with Him where life has no endings anymore, and knows not the passing of time.  May He walk close with you down the pathway that leads to His open, waiting arms, always ready to enfold you into everlasting joy, peace, and serenity.  I pray you ease out in peace with the knowledge that you are His evermore.  God be with you on this journey. Dave

i also had the privilege of getting to know dave through the windcrest citizen patrol, when i became wcp team #4 captain in 2010. 1st thing i learned; he was the most reliable of drivers, then i quickly came to know him as a kind, loving, joyful man. he seemed genuinely disappointed when he was made to retire from driving on september 20, 2011, after 27 years of dedicated service to our fair city. i think he would have loved to keep volunteering to the end. i can safely say we felt the loss of a valuable member of the wcp when he retired, and now more so, we all feel the loss of a wonderful human being on this earth...he now gets a well deserved rest...we send our heartfelt sympathy & prayers to you, velora, suzie & family

I got to know Dave when I was a team leader on the Windcrest Citizens' Patrol. He and Karl Dankof always made it a practice of patrolling together until Karl passed. I know it was never the same for Dave after that but he kept on patrolling and was on the patrol from 1984 to last year. I also counted him as a friend and enjoyed visiting with him a couple of times in his home. We never got around to that golf game, but it's just as well as I'm sure he would have beat me terribly! My sincere condolences to Velora, Dale Lee,Susan and all the family. Bob Gentet, Windcrest friend.

Colonel Withers reminds us that there was a time when Giants Walked the Earth. He was--and is--one of them. History will record that his friendship with my late Father, Colonel Karl E. Dankof (USAF) began in 1943 and now continues in Heaven. We shall see both of them again in the Kingdom of God.
