Dale Lewis White Sr., 92, most beloved husband, father, uncle and granddad, passed away peacefully Monday, Jan. 13, 2014. Service: A private family was held at memorial service his bedside. Memorials: The family respectfully requests that donations be made to the National  Alzheimer's Association . Dale was born Nov. 24, 1921, to Berlin and Ruth White. He was raised in Mattoon, Ill. Throughout his life, Dale accomplished many things. He began as an aircraft mechanic in the Army Air Corps during World War II, and became an instructor/pilot in the Army Air Corps as well. Upon leaving the military, he flew as an airline pilot for Delta Air Lines until he retired in 1981. During his youth, he attended the Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, Ohio, and for a time played the stand-up bass in a touring swing/jazz band. He could also play the piano, guitar and trumpet. At some point, when his children were young, he refurbished a Cessna 140 and taught his son Steve to fly. Steve followed his father's footsteps and became an airline pilot as a result. Dale played golf and reached the level of scratch golfer. He then taught his wife and sons how to play. Eldest son Dale Jr. played golf professionally. There wasn't an engine Dale couldn't fix or a piece of furniture he couldn't build or repair. He built the family home in Westlake, where he held the position of mayor for many years. Dale never did anything halfway. He learned to play pool quite well and was such a skilled fly fisherman that he actually invented a side cast that a professional fly-fishing guide and expert wrote of in his book, adopted and uses to this day. Dale was very much a family man and will be dearly missed by those who knew and loved him. He set a great example for his children of an amazing husband, father and grandfather. Our family Sunday football games won't be the same without him. Dale was preceded in death by his wife and best friend Geraldine, "Gerry," on Oct. 1, 2013; sister, Logrita; and daughter, Leslie Sue White. Survivors: His family and living memorials include his son, Dr. Dale L. White Jr. and his wife, Debbie; son, Steve and his wife, Teri; son, Dr. Keith Hubbard and his wife, Dianne; and grandchildren, Amy, Dale, Donald, Courtney, Kyle, Keller, Lynsi and her husband Brad, Kelsi, Cara and Natali; his great-grandchildren, Samantha, Madeline and Rory; his nieces, Lisa and Susan; and many lifelong friends.

Wanda Geraldine "Gerry" White, 86, beloved wife, mother, sister, Grandma and GiGi, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013. Memorial service: A private family memorial was held at her bedside. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please send donations to The Wounded Warrior Project at www.woundedwarriorproject.org Gerry was raised in West Union, Ohio, and was a person who truly embraced life to the fullest. Those who knew her would attest to the fact that her life revolved around her family. She never met a stranger, and was known for making new friends everywhere she went. She could recall every detail about the lives of those she loved, and always knew how to make them feel special. Throughout her life, she took every opportunity to provide help, love and support for those who were in need, and actively donated to many charities, including the Wounded Warriors. Her husband Dale, introduced her to the sport of golf, and she excelled at it, winning many tournaments throughout the years she played. She was once awarded "The Spirit of Golf" award at Trophy Club Country Club for her sportsmanship. She enjoyed traveling, fly fishing and camping in the family RV, as well. Unknown to many was the fact that Gerry was at one time, an accomplished concert pianist. She held the title of Cincinnati Marble Champion in her youth and was the leading receiver in the RPL (Roanoke Pasture League). Football was an important tradition in her household during the fall, and she loved cheering on the Dallas Cowboys with her family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry Milton Gollahon and Dora Ruth Gollahon; brother, Harry Gollahon; and her daughter, Leslie Sue White. Survivors: She is survived by her loving husband and best friend of 68 years, Dale L. White, Sr.; her son, Dr. Dale L. White Jr. and his wife, Debbie; son, Steven M. White and his wife, Teri; her son, Dr. Keith Hubbard and his wife, Dianne; her sister, Delores Gollahon; her grandchildren, Amy, Dale, Donald, Courtney, Kyle, Keller, Lynsi and her husband, Brad, Kelsi, Cara, Natali; her great-grandchildren, Samantha, Rory and Madeline; as well as, many nieces, nephews and lifelong friends. "There are some who bring a light so great into the world that, even after they have gone, the light remains."--Rakesh Mohan Hallen Thank you for the light, Ger. See ya on the other side of the river.
