Kentucky church member fatally shot while making police call
“He was an outstanding man,” Graham said. “David was very good at working behind the scenes and was really involved in the life of this church that way.
“He was always ready and willing to do whatever he could, whenever and however he was needed.”
Graham said several thousand mourners are expected to attend Whitson’s memorial services, which will be at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Hillvue Heights Church in Bowling Green.
Whitson was the son of the late George Whitson, a Church of Christ minister. In addition to his wife and two children, he is survived by his mother, Martha Whitson, two sisters, and several other family members.
Cards of condolence may be sent to the family via the Lehman Avenue Church of Christ, 1002 Lehman Avenue, Bowling Green, KY 42103. A fund also has been established through American Bank and Trust for the family to help with expenses.
