John Whitmer

Dear NWGS members,

We have very sad news to share.  We lost a very special, long-term NWGS member this week.  Many of you have had the privilege of attending field trips with John or led by John.  He was incredibly passionate about geology.  We will share more about John soon.  Meanwhile…

There will be a meeting at University House this coming Saturday, Jan. 16, 2-4 p.m., to remember John Whitmer, who died Wednesday, Jan 13.  Anyone who knew John or had some connection with him is welcome to attend.  The meeting will be in the Gilman Room, on the first floor.  Please bring memories to share, if you are so inclined.

University House is the retirement community where John lived these past few years. The address is
22975 SE Black Nugget Road
Issaquah, WA 98029
Front desk phone: (425) 557-4200

If you have questions or comments about this you are welcome to contact his son, Nick Whitmer

Warm regards,
Mary Lynne Poole
