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.
