My deepest condolences. Whip is 1 of my favorite people. I enjoyed seeing him weekly and very much enjoyed all his stories...about being in the service, owning the restaurant, the fish he cooked for fish Fridays and 1 of my favorite is the stories of Tex being the bouncer of the club. I will miss you! MEMORY ETERNAL!

My 1st memories of Uncle Whip are of Monaca Hotel/Inn. He & Aunt Dorothy owned it over 30 yrs. I grew up there. I sat in a yellow metal highchair. I rode the buffer when my dad cleaned there. Many of us worked there, including, me, my siblings, cousins, &, my mom. Even after our parents divorce, my mom bartended there. Sooo many memories. RIP Uncle " Miracle " Whip, as Brandi always called you.
