“A good life well lived”Richard 'Dick' White, Jr., faithful husband, devoted father and decorated war veteran, gracefully passed away on the morning of October 7, 2011.He will be profoundly missed by his children Liz, Rick, Pete and Jeff, their spouses John, Frankie and Connie, his grandchildren Johanna (husband Greg), James, Dan, Rick (wife Katie), Stephen, Brian, Jill, and Eric and great grands Abigail, Sam and Hailyn.Dad was a consummate storyteller and spent his last days and hours retelling some of his favorite life events. His words of encouragement and trust will be remembered by us all. We were taught the best things in life are not possessions, that social responsibility was a requirement for being human, and that this is a remarkable world that we are privileged to enjoy. He was tolerant of most, although there were a few Republicans who tried his patience. We were blessed by his sense of humor, his sense of honor, his devotion to family and his integrity.He became a baptized Catholic shortly before the passing of his beloved wife Beverly, but actually was a better Catholic than most of us starting shortly after their wedding. We are lucky to have inherited his love of travel, chocolate chip cookies, the History Channel, all books, some politics, and maybe an occasional toddy.At 92 years old his vision weakened but his mind and positive outlook remained forever strong. We bless dad as he continues his journey and we know he blesses our journeys. A private family service has been held as dad wanted.In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a charity of your choice or conduct an act of kindness.
