Obituary

David “Dave” LeRoy Whitney, of North Chesterfield, passed away on March 3, 2019. David was predeceased by his parents George and Florence Whitney. He is survived by his loving wife, Donna; son, David M.; daughters, Susan (Jesse) and Ann (HB); and step-sons, Peter and Tom (Courtney) Mathes. David was known as Grampie and Poppy to his 4 grandchildren Sam, Whitney, Owen and Riley. Dave was born on April 6, 1935 in Philadelphia. He was a graduate of Central High School and Drexel University where he was an outstanding athlete in both baseball and soccer, becoming an All American in 1956. He was one of the top goal keepers of his era and was invited to the 1956 Olympic soccer team trials. After college David was proud to have served as a Second Lieutenant in the Army Reserves and enjoyed a successful career in the HVAC industry and eventually established his own business, DW Associates. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and Friend of Bill for 35 years. He was an avid golfer who loved the game, so much so, that after retirement he became a part time starter at Providence Golf course. A special thank you goes to the wonderful caregivers, Glendel Clarke and Sunny Bell who went above and beyond in caring for him. A Celebration of Life service will be held at Morrissett Funeral and Cremation Service, 6500 Ironbridge Rd. (Rt 10), on Friday, March 8, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. with a reception immediately following. In lieu of flowers the family suggests memorial contributions be made to the charity of your choice.
