OBITUARY

Robert Lee White

September 3, 1959May 14, 2020

Robert Lee (Bobby) White , age 60, passed from this earthly life on May 14, 2020. Bobby was born in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, on September 3, 1959, and he was big brother to Marvin and Clay. He was privileged to experience life in Puerto Rico and Spain, and he and his family moved to Wichita Falls in 1979, just after the Terrible Tuesday tornado. Wichita Falls became his lifetime home. Bobby was best known as a free spirit; he lived life on his terms. He was gifted with impressive intellectual abilities, and a conversation with him was interspersed with vocabulary that at times required a dictionary to interpret. He was bilingual, and spoke both English and Spanish fluently. He was passionate about his style of music, 70’s rock and roll, and old school soul, and he enjoyed playing his guitar. Everything Bobby did, he carried out to the extreme, and gave 200% always. He used to get his dirt bike stuck in trees! He would ride it on one wheel for miles. He was a jack of all trades, the go-to person who could fix everything and put anything together, no matter how challenging. A better welder would be hard to find. He was a loyal and dedicated ranch hand for Dillard Ranch, yet he was not a typical Texas cowboy. He was Bobby: no traditional western shirt, cowboy boots or specially creased hat for him. He wore his favorite themed tee shirts and steel-toed boots. Bobby loved his family, and had an unbreakable bond with his mother, Leslie, and a very special relationship with his stepdad, Ken Besher. He was a caring man, and a handsome one as well, and enjoyed nothing more than cooking delicious Puerto Rican food for his mother. She always looked forward to enjoying his culinary talents. Bobby was Catholic, and his faith was strong; he studied the Bible and knew it well. Those remaining to cherish Bobby’s memory are his loving mother and stepdad, Lesbia (Leslie) Ramonita Martinez-Besher and Ken Besher; his brothers, Clay White and Marvin White and wife Rene; sister Kathy Bradley; niece Nala White; nephews, Aaron White and Landen Alexander; cousins, Tommy Lowe, Dores Lowe-Rogers, Cindy Wiseman, and Gabriel Martinez; aunts, Anna Wiseman, Cristina Martinez, Isamar Martinez, Selma Balseiro, Lourdes Martinez and Norma Martinez; and uncles Carlos Martinez, Junior Martinez and Pepin Martinez. The celebration of life for Bobby will be private, and services are under the direction of Hampton Vaughan Crestview Funeral Home.

I have so many fun memories with my Uncle Bobby. He’s shown me things YEARS ago that still stick with me. Things like his robot dance and his “handshake thumb break” move, as well as, the little pinch on the tricep and the “booty man” song by Tim Wilson!

I’m gonna miss his stories and seeing him act them out as well. He was the crazy uncle we all have and he was good at it! Always a good time to be had when he was around.

To Uncle Bobby..

You lived your life free! I don’t know of anything you were afraid of and that’s very admirable. I will never forget the fun memories we made. Love you and miss you...
