In memory of Charles W. Whalen.
| WHEREAS, The members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Charles W. Whalen and extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends; and|
| WHEREAS, Charles Whalen left an indelible impression on the people whose lives he touched, and he will be remembered as a spirited individual who contributed immeasurably to the world around him. A U.S. Army veteran of World War II, he served in the Ohio House of Representatives from 1955 through 1960, in the Ohio Senate from 1961 through 1966, and in the United States House of Representatives from 1967 through 1978, and he co-authored two books with his wife; and |
| WHEREAS, Charles Whalen's regard for improving the quality of life in our society was clearly evident in his personal sacrifices of time and effort to his family, friends, and community. Giving generously of his energy and abilities in all of his endeavors, he displayed exceptional concern and insight, and his absence will be keenly felt; and|
| WHEREAS, A loving husband to his wife, Barbara, a devoted father to his six children, and the proud grandfather of seven grandchildren, Charles Whalen always used his talents to the benefit of others, and the laurels of his life stand as a tribute not only to him but also to those he left behind. Although the void his death has created can never be filled, the legacy of care and commitment he established will surely live on. The world is a richer place for his having been in it, and he will be sorely missed; therefore be it|
| RESOLVED, That we, the members of the House of Representatives of the 129th General Assembly of Ohio, in adopting this Resolution, express a profound sense of loss and sincere regret at the death of Charles W. Whalen and, in so doing, pay tribute to the memory of a truly unique individual; and be it further|
| RESOLVED, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives transmit a duly authenticated copy of this Resolution to the family of Charles W. Whalen.|
