Robert “Bob” Whittier Obituary

Post by Pat Weeden »

Received via e-mail....

Pietenpol friends :

I am writing to inform you of the sad news of the passing of my father, Robert “Bob” Whittier. His obituary is attached. (linked below. ed.)

I am not sure whether my father was a member of your organization, but if he was not an official member he was certainly a member in spirit.

In 2002 or 2003 he took my family and I to the Brodhead fly-in where my boys were given Young Eagles rides by the late Bill Rewey in his C-65 powered Piet. I was saddened earlier this year to learn of Bill’s passing. I forwarded the article to my sons, now grown.

I am copying my sister, Jenney Whittier, on this. If you need information about Bob beyond what is in the obituary please contact either one of us.

Best regards,
John Whittier
