John White Obituary

John Kenneth White passed away quietly in his sleep early Thursday morning, January 11, 2023, after becoming ill in September 2023.

He was born November 12, 1954 to Lester Jack White and Delores Williams White of Townsend.

John will be greatly missed. He was a beloved father, son, brother and husband. Above all, John was kind, loving and giving. He never stayed angry for longer than a few moments before his sunny disposition returned. Born in Townsend on November 12, 1954, John knew the nearby mountains, forests and lakes from years of hunting, trapping, fishing, 4-wheeling and camping with his family. He used to climb a mountain, shoot a deer and carry it down on his shoulders. His former brother-in-law's son described him as "the strongest man I have ever known."

John went to school in Townsend. Although he was only 5'9" he was a star of the school football team playing on the line as a guard. When he was 17, he left school and  joined the work force with his father doing construction, working in mines, providing a lawnmowing business and running the best trapline in the state. Later John did housekeeping and maintenance in nursing homes.

John was preceded in death by his father Lester Jack White, his sister Rosemary White Deadmond his first wife Doreen Monger White, his second wife Tina Howe White and his daughter Katie Marie White.

He is survived by his mother Delores Williams White, his third wife Carol Lea  Hunter White, his brother Lester Ray White, his sister Barbara White Oliver, his aunt Deborah Jean Etzweiler, his stepson John Gary Sorenson and his son Jack Kenneth White.
