  • Yosh Fujimoto and family

    Our dad Yosh worked with Doug and Whaley for many years on the farm in Brooks. Dad has many memories of both Doug and Whaley – the custom combining, the big garden that was shared with many friends, the pets and of course the plowing competitions. Their kindness shown to dad and our family will not be forgotten. Our deepest condolences to the Mar family.

  • Julius and Marie Snyders

    Sorry that Whaley had to move on but I’m glad I met him on Old East Road as we walked our dogs. I think he had a pretty full life; I enjoyed his tales of the tractor competitions. Good bye Whaley.
