Meeting him last year was such a thrill. He was a legend to me and he will be missed.
So sorry to hear of Fred's passing. I was a member of the Royal's family for 10 yrs and enjoyed many a good time with Fred
Fred was a great (and so funny) guy. Proud to have known him throughout my Royals years and since. Sympathies to Barb and the kids. You have lots of good memories to help you through.
Always enjoyed listening to Fred on the broadcast. He was a special individual and could make you feel like you were right there seeing all of the action just as he did. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this most difficult time.
Having heard Fred on the radio, broadcasting Royals baseball, with Denny Mathews, I felt like I had known him, long before I ever met him in person. When I did get to meet him, shake his hand, and visit with him, it was like talking to an old friend. I always looked forward to another phone call, conversation, or meeting with him, and I enjoyed every one of them. He will be sorely missed. My deepest sympathy to Barbara, Joe, and the entire White family.
Terric sports reporter and terrific person. KC lost a great one!
We grew up together coming from a small high school in a little town in Illinois. Fred White was already a star back in those days. All his friends will remember him as a leader with compassion for everyone.

Baseball was made for the radio and Fred White made the game of baseball come alive......no pictures needed. He painted them in my mind. Bob Orf 680/KFEQ Radio
Loved listening to Fred and Denny. Have listened to different crews in many cities but you were the best. RIP Fred
33 years after you called Bretts' homer off Gossage. It still gives me goosebumps. We will miss you Fred & may God Bless your soul.
Fred, thanks for all the memories listening to you and Denny grwoing up. You were awesome and a class act. RIP.
As a "74" grad of K-State...finally meeting Fred in '03'was truly an honor. Had watched, listened and admired his work for decades. Then to get to know what a quality human he is, was truly special. He helped so many young sportscasters believe in themselves. I will always appreciate his friendship.

I, too, remember his "voice!" But, I did get to meet him when I babysat for an assistant KSU basketball coach, back in the day; AND was a "hostess" for 4 years on football game days, for the "press" in the 'original' press box at K-state! I am honored to have met him. God Bless
Dear Stacy, and family, I grow up watching him on TV with my Dad and then I was lucky enough to meet and go to school with his daughter I'm am very thankful and Mr. White will always be apart of the bridge to my Dad as we watched the local News. So sorry for your lose. Sending you prays. Your old friend Letah Lewis. God Bless you and your family.
I well remember Fred from my years in the Kansas City area (1968-1989). Great announcer, great guy, and a great representative of what the Mid-West was all about. He now joins another Rtoyal Paul Splitorff upstairs. Bless the memory of both.

Thanks for all the "MARVELOUS" Kansas broadcasting!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you for sharing Fred with us all. I enjoyed his broadcasts--the way he called a game and his sense of humor.
We were honored to meet Mr. Fred White on a few occasions, and he was such a gentleman--very endearing. We will most remember him for his wonderful broadcasts, which really brought the games to life over the radio.
I didn't know Mr.White but knew that voice when listening/watching the Royals.From reading his obit it looks like he had a very full life with the many things he did and was involved in.I'm sure his wife,family,close friends and associates will miss him terribly.I am sending my sincere condolences to all of them.
