Our Classmates

Mark Whitney

Our dear classmate Mark Whitney, a member of our class during second grade at Center School, and the brother of classmate Kurt Whitney, passed away on Nov. 21, 2019. He was a resident of West Springfield.
Following his time at Center School, Mark joined the Special Class at Mapleshade School, and went on to graduate from West Springfield High School in 1970 in a special program.
He worked at Smith and Wesson Corporation for 25 years.
Mark was an avid sports fan, especially of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots.
He was predeceased by his parents, Floyd and Charlotte Whitney, and his sister, Lisa Whitney, ELHS 1977. He is survived by his brother, Kurt, in our class and Keith, ELHS 1972.

Growing up, the Whitney family were neighbors. I always found Mark to be a gentle soul with a wonderful heart. I send my love to his surviving siblings, Kurt, in our class, and Keith, ELHS 1972.
