Just thought I would share this.

Lisa ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Scott Joseph Whitman Sr., a golf club manager and motorcycle restorer, died of cancer Oct. 1 at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Parkville resident was 43.

Mr. Whitman was born in Kearny, N.J., and raised in Belleville, N.J. After graduating from high school, he worked as a floor trader at the New York Stock Exchange for about a decade.

In the early 1990s, while living in Cleona, Pa., he worked in maintenance at the Hershey Country Club. Since 1998, he had been head of maintenance at Hunt Valley Golf Club.

Mr. Whitman enjoyed riding and restoring motorcycles.

"He was a Harley fan," said his wife of nine years, the former Linda Rubertone.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered Thursday at St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church in Belleville.

Surviving, in addition to his wife, are an 8-year-old son, Scott J. Whitman Jr.; a 5-year-old daughter, Kerilyn R. Whitman; his parents, Arthur and Anna May Whitman of Palmyra, Pa.; two brothers, Stephen C. Whitman of Palmyra and Brian Whitman of New Jersey; and a sister, Margaret Purcell of Celona, Pa.

    Thank you Lisa for posting this here for us all to read. Linda and Scott are often mentioned when I talk to some of you over the phone. I am sure that Linda knows we are all with her in our thoughts and prayers.
