LTC William E. “Whit” Whitworth

If it is true that a library is lost when an elder dies, then Jefferson County is missing a university’s worth of history following last week’s passing of LTC William E. “Whit” Whitworth, 84.

Those who knew and worked with him in volunteer roles say he was a national hero and a paragon of service to others.
