Mr. White was my all time favorite teachers. I had him for homeroom class when I was in the 8th grade. My friend Patty Solari and I got to put up his bulletin board every time he changed it. He always greated everyone with a smile. I was fortunate enough to have him sign my yearbook when I graduated from RHS in '72. He will always be remembered in my heart. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Thank you for the opportunity to express to Mr. White's family just how important he was to the class of 1970 at RHS. I am filled with sadness for his family because such a fantastic personality was taken too soon. When I think back, I believe his class was one everyone wanted to attend...he made us think and respected us an individuals. God bless you all...

Mr White was my absolute favorite teacher. I always tell people that I became a social science teacher at a community college because of him.

What a great teacher and history lover Mr. White was! I still love history to this day and volunteer with my local historical society, because of the love of history instilled in me by Mr. White. So sorry to hear of his passing. I didn't know about his other careers! What a neat guy! I'm class of 1972 RHS.

Ask any of us from the RHS Class of 1970 who were his students - Mr. White made a positive impact on every one of us.
"Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him."
Thank you, Mr. White.
