After graduating in the class of 1984, Mr. White enlisted in the US Air Force where he developed his love of travel.
While tending to his beloved cattle, that he referred to as his kids, Mr. White was overtaken by a heart attack, and died doing what he loved most and without regret.

Mr. White’s charisma, dedication, and strong work ethic ensued a culture of altruism among his family and community that will remain in the hearts of the people who knew him; his smile and humor have already been etched in the hearts of those who knew him. He enjoyed vigorous hunts in Vermont and Colorado, evenings relaxing with family and friends, caring for his animals, photography, good food and wine while traveling, poker, other card games, and storytelling. He strongly believed, “It’s not what you take when you leave this world behind, but what you leave behind you when you go.”
