Our condolences to the Bart Township Fire Company and the Whiteside Family on the passing of John “Whitey” Whiteside Jr. Whitey passed away on Thursday, June 22, 2017 after a brief illness.
Whitey joined the Bart Township Fire Company in 1979 and served 38 faithful years. Whitey fulfilled many roles over the years, although most times he could be found in the drivers seat of the apparatus. Whitey served as an EMT on the QRS, Assistant Fire Chief, Deputy Fire Chief, President and most recently served as the Chief Engineer. He also was an integral part of the Bart Mud Sale.
Whitey was a good friend of a lot of us here at QFD, and we will surely miss him.
