Dr. Gary Edward Whitehouse, 78, passed away Friday March 31, 2017 in Bonita Springs, Florida.

He was professor of Industrial Engineering at Lehigh University from 1965-1978; he continued his career as a faculty member and administrator at University of Central Florida from 1978-2004. As university administrator, Dr. Whitehouse helped lead and guide UCF through a period of rapid growth and development. He served as the Department Chair of Industrial Engineering 1978-1983, as Dean of Engineering 1988-1993, and finally as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at UCF 1993-2003.
Kurt John Lesker III, a man who truly loved every moment of life, was surrounded by his children and loving wife when he passed away on October 24th. He died at the age of 66 after a courageous battle with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. A Pittsburgh native, Kurt grew up in Whitehall and graduated from Baldwin High School in 1967. His yearbook has him listed as “handsome and popular”…that never changed. Kurt’s relentless sense of adventure and joy of life was infectious to everyone he knew, and through them his SPIRIT will live on.
