John W. White

February 19, 1938 ~ March 16, 2020 (age 82)


Passed away in his home on March 16, 2020 surrounded by his family. 

I, John W. White, was born Feb 19, 1938 in Hiawatha, Utah to Louis and Betty White.  I came to Tooele, Utah with my parents when I was 16 years old.  I met and married Rita Lewark when I was 18. We had 3 daughters, Debra (Earl) Crosby; Lori (Rick) Groves; and Mikki (Leon) McKenzie. I divorced Rita after 8 years.  Then, on Nov 1st, 1968, I married Lena Wilde. She had 3 daughters, Debra (Jim) Henwood); Lorrie (deceased); and Norma Warr.  These girls became more like my real daughters, more so than my real girls.  I worked at Tooele Army Depot for 30 years. After being retired only 1 year, I went to work for Tooele County Housing for 18 years before retiring. I am really proud of my grandchildren from my step daughters, Arthur (Dani) Peasnall; Lena Marie (Antonio) Mcotry; Ashley (Josue) Riches; and Shelice Warr.  Two great grandchildren, Creighton Patterson and Heaven Patterson.  They were always here when I needed them.

One brother survives, Claude (Myrna) White. 

My wishes were to be cremated and have a graveside service at a later date.

Thanks to Jordan and Susan from Harmony Hospice for the care of John.
