My deepest condolences go to the Whitaker family. I crossed paths with Mr. Whitaker a few times during my visits to Enfield as my mom grew up there. He left a lasting impression after every conversation and I was impressed with his accomplishments in life. Rest assured knowing that he is in a much better place and know that he truly loved his family. God Bless you all.

Robert and Martha, I am so sorry about your Dad's death. I remember him from long ago and loved reading about your family's house, his life and work, and love of his friends, family, and of course Topsail. I'm sorry for your loss. Take care!

On this day of Rob's Remembrance Day, my thoughts are with his family and friends. In remembering my last visit to Strawberry Hill after the June 2019 Whitaker Reunion, I have fond memories of Rob taking me through the house and showing me his garden, taking family group pictures and having a one-on-one conversation on our families with a glass of wine sitting overlooking his proud garden. The last ime I was in the house was 34 years ago before the renovations Rob and Jane made. I was taken to the house after that reunion by my Aunt Eunice Whitaker and her brother, Uncle Charles Whitaker, Sr. of Bells, TN. Rob took us on tour and I remember the music room with the antique piano. All good Whitaker memories thanks to Rob's gracioousness.
