I will always cherish the memories I have of 'Grandpa Whitney, a man whom I have grown to love and cherish for his deep love of the gospel, his family, and especially of his 'Ellie'. My life has been profoundly changed by this giant of a man, who, for a time, I was blessed to call Dad.

Our prayers are with the family of Brother Whitney. He was an outstanding patriarch who exemplified the true love and power of the Holy Priesthood.

Grandpa was the one person you could always count on, always talk to, and you always knew he cared. There was never a question he could not answer. It was easy to be uplifted simply by being in his presence. He carried godliness about him. The light of the gospel was his.

God Bless you Mr. Whitney. You were a very good teacher and always very nice. It was teachers like you, that made students want to go to school and learn. Your entire family was always very nice to. May your rest in peace, and I will never forget you, Sandy Mojarro Streeter

Mr Whitney was a true treasure. Throughout my education and career I have had the pleasure of setting in the classroom of many fine teachers. Mr Whitney and Mr Elchelberger hold the highest rank and set the mark for their passion and compassion for subject matter and student. Both taught more in the classroom than geometry or physics...they taught ethics, morality and the gift of patience with a dose of humor. I will always remember them with love and gratitude.

Thanks for passing this along. As Grace so eloquently put it, Mr. Whitney was truly a treasure. He was so much more than just a math teacher. He was a teacher, role model and friend to us all. He was the epitome of what a teacher should be. He was also a great family man. Those of us lucky enough to know his children can attest to that. There have been many times that I have thought back to things he said to help me make the right choices in life. He will be sorely missed. May God bless Mr. Whitney and watch over his family and friends.
