Whitehall lost a good man two days ago. Bruce Brinker was a respected man in this community. A man who genuinely cared about the town, it’s citizens and the Lehigh Valley as a whole. He was currently serving as a member of the township Board of Commissioners. He passed away Tuesday morning.
Although we are highly critical of Whitehall’s politicians, Brinker was a man with a stellar reputation. I never had the opportunity to sit down and talk with him and I regret that. Brinker knew the politics in this town well.
His obituary is up on the Morning Call’s website. Services will be held next week. I urge all of you who can, to attend and say a final thank you to a man who often put Whitehal;’s interests first.
