I am privileged to call Whitey a friend, and will greatly miss him. My thoughts and prayers go out to Debbie, Ryan, and Nikki as well as the rest of the family.
I remember a lot of time spent on the road together, in many parts of the country. Whitey was always ready with a helping hand, a joke, or whatever he could do to help anyone.
RIP my friend...
