Whyatt was a fun loving and high-spirited kid. He loved the Tales of Lady Bug & Cat Noir, Power Rangers, most anything Disney, and most importantly, Spiderman. Whyatt never knew a stranger and was friends with everyone he met. Family was important to him, and Nana was his person. These things made him so happy, and he was one of the kindest most giving souls. He fought 3 hard years with cancer and was so fiercely independent through the trying times. He is flying with Spiderman now but will be so missed by all who knew him.
