On Wednesday, QFD firefighters and Fire Police attended the funeral of John “Whitey” Whiteside Jr. Truck 57 and Truck 5 (Strasburg) had the flag assignment to the front of Station 51.
Throughout the day, memories of good times with Whitey were talked about and memorialized by several people during the service. Bart Township Fire Company put together a great service and great day of honoring Whitey. Their Company can be proud of the way they came together, along with the greater Bart community, to get everything done, including a very successful benefit auction Monday night, a viewing Tuesday night and the funeral Wednesday.
Thanks to all of the QFD firefighters and fire police that attended and helped with the events. Thanks to Chris Haldeman for the photos.
