The PSAR family is saddened to hear about the recent passing of Steve Whittington, who served as PSAR's East San Diego County Association of REALTORS® president in 2002. He passed away from a respiratory illness on March 8, 2023. He was 76.
Steve was born on Aug. 23, 1947, to Frank and Lorraine Whittington in Dubuque, Iowa. At age 3, the family moved to San Diego.
Steve was married to his wife Patti for 53 years. They both attended the same elementary school. Their friendship continued while attending Hilltop Junior High and Hilltop High School. They were married in 1970, the same year Steve graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in sociology. They raised a son and daughter.
Steve worked for Bank of America for several years before launching his real estate sales career, which began around 1987. In 1991, Steve opened Peerless Properties, a real estate sales office, and Peerless Property Management.
Steve believed in giving back to the community and supporting growth in the real estate industry, which led to his service as PSAR president. During Steve’s tenure as president, his daughter Amy worked part-time at PSAR as a receptionist.
Steve continued working in real estate until his retirement in 2010. During his retirement years, Steve enjoyed golfing, playing poker with close friends, and traveling with Patti.
