A Tribute to Gary Whitwell

1945 - 2022

Gary was a founding member of the SNA in 1993. Since then, he served the community and the SNA continously and up to the time of his passing, he was still serving on the board of directors. He was always actively involved in the issues and challenges facing our neighborhood and community.

Gary was also a volunteer in the Fort Worth Police Department Citizens on Patrol program, known as (COP). He was one of the first people to volunteer when the program was created in the early 1990s. He served as COP coordinator for our area until failing health forced him to resign. Even with the failing health, Gary continued to be actively involved in COP to the best of his abilitiy.

Gary was always upbeat and positive while serving his community. He never sought recognition for all he did. His counsel was always sage, wise, and well thought out. He always kept a calm demeanor. He faced and conquered challenges throughout his life with rarely matched bravery and determination.

It was a pleasure, a privilege, and an honor to have Gary as a friend. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him and worked with him.
