Dr. Whaley R. Hinnant Jr., DDS, affectionately known as “Buddy”, was a Founder and Charter Member of the Rotary Club of Charleston-Breakfast (Est. 1982) who passed away July 4th, 2015. Prior to helping found the downtown Charleston breakfast club, he was a long-time Rotarian with the Historic Charleston Rotary Club. Buddy was a true Rotarian in all ways for which it could be defined. Along with the many Rotarian friends who will miss him greatly, we will miss his smile, his laugh, and his willingness to always help out and get things done. Some of the Rotary accolades that Buddy was awarded over his many years as an active member include: Foundation Chair (20 years), Benefactor, Double Sustaining Member, Major Donor, Paul Harris Fellow, Past President, and Service above Self Awardee.
