Monday, March 26, 2018Deepest Sympathy and blessings to the family and friends of John Whitty what a remarkable and . talented individual who had gift to inspire and evoke thought, emotion and promote the performing arts to others through his abundant personality, acting, presence and vocalizations. My late mother Professor of Ag Economics at WVU and I so enjoyed knowing Dr. John Whitty over 40 years and whether on stage,, of off he was remarkable.

Wednesday, January 10, 2018I am John's cousin on his mother's side. Over the years, I saw much less of "Johnny" than I wanted. When I was young and visiting the family, he was usually in Chapel Hill, New York, Iowa or somewhere. Occasionally I would be with the family to catch "Unto These Hills" or "The Lost Colony." Later, I was fortunate enough to visit with he and his family in the family cottage in coastal North Carolina. I did drop in on he and Sarah in Morgantown for a few days in the Fall of 2001. We exchanged family lore, memories and had plenty of laughs. He was healthy then and seemed happy in retirement. I feel fine in having those last memories of a guy I was always fond of. My love to Sarah, David and "Kitty," and to all of the daughters and their families. We are all better people for having him in our lives.

Wednesday, January 10, 2018My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to and for Dr. Whitty's family. May God comfort you and keep Dr. Whitty alive in your hearts with good memories. I learned a lot in his theater history class and enjoyed the productions he directed and appeared in during my college years as a theater major at West Virginia University. His performance as Don Quixote in "Man of La Mancha" was quite moving and stands out in my memory. May he rest peacefully in God's arms.

Wednesday, January 10, 2018Oh, dear people. I am so sorry for your great loss. John was a Light in this world. Sarah, it just occurred to me that we never told you that you and John provided such an incredible example of a good marriage, two people as one, when Robert and I were trying to figure out how to do that. We love your whole family very much - individually and as a brilliant ensemble. Thank you for sharing yourselves with the world. We will hold you in our hearts with prayer and Grace as you grieve. As we say in the mountains, "Holler if we can do anything." Love, Carol
