Larry Lee White


Larry Lee White, 78, passed away Monday, June 10, at home, due to complications from several strokes.
He was born Feb. 28, 1941, in South Bend, to Charles William and Phyllis (Edwards) White.
In 1959, he graduated from Washington Clay High School, South Bend.
On July 28, 1962, he married Suzette Sue Purtee in South Bend.
Mr. White retired from Four Winds, December 2010, after 18 years of service. Previously, he worked at Shasta Industries for 32 years.
Larry was an active bowler at Maple City Bowl for many years, a golfing member of Maplecrest Country Club on the Monday Night League and served as president of Maplecrest C.C. He was very active in the Goshen Boys & Girls Club and served as president for many years.
He enjoyed snowmobiling and was a member of the Elkhart County Snowmobile Club and also a member of the Elkhart Vette Set.
Larry was a hands-on kind of man. If there was a problem, he'd work on a solution. Many cocktail napkins were used to come up with a plan. Larry loved his wife, his family, his work and his yard. Dandelions were not allowed.

He was preceded in death by his parents.
