Michael “Mike” White, 60, passed away at his home in Manhattan on January 3, 2018.  He was born in Bozeman, MT on October 10, 1957 to Vernon and Ella Mae White.

He is survived by his wife, Diane; son, Matt (Chelle) White; daughter, Missy (Lee) Randall; brother, Rick (Lila) White; and six grandchildren, Addi, Kinzie, Dolly, Doonan, Gracie, and Dawson.  He was preceded in death by his parents.

Family Feedback

"Thank you seems too inadequate to express the true feelings in my heart for the way you handled the military service.  I know he would have approved of your efficient and caring manner and so do I.  Thanks again, too, for your kindness.  I shall always recommend your services to all I come in contact with."
