William Kirk

Good day Gary and thank you for all the info you have provided.

My name is William Kirk. I am from Alberta, Canada and for the past few years now, I have been looking for information on David Whatley.

I met David when my Father brought him to our home in Kamsack, SK, circa 1948. Dave played baseball for my Mother's Cousin's Husband's team, the Kamsack Cyclones. I was around 8 years of age at that time.

Dave quickly became my hero and, at my request, struck many home runs for me.

It is unfortunate, that when we are young, we don't keep in touch with those
we meet. Off and on throughout my life, I have thought about Dave, however, I was unable to find much information on him, until today, when I found your write up. I was elated!

I have a photo of Dave and myself (at the age of 8), taken at our home in Kamsack. I am now 79 years of age.

I wish to thank Gary and your organization for the write ups and pictures. I am not sure if you have more information on Dave, or simply that which was written up in the articles posted by yourself.

I am trying to get in touch with Dave's Family members, in order to share the photo & my memories. Any information in that regard, would be greatly
