William Hays "Bill" White Obituary
William "Bill" Hays White, 67, of Cedar Hill passed away Monday, May 26, 2014, surrounded by family and close friends. Celebration of life: Never wanting a fuss or sadness, Bill requested a celebration of fun and laughter at his barn. It will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday at his place in Cedar Hill. BYOB and plenty of scratch-offs. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Texas DPS Troopers Foundation. Bill was born Aug. 24, 1946, in Bryan-College Station. Known as "Bull" to his six doting granddaughters, Bill graduated from A&M Consolidated High School in 1964 and from Texas A&M University in 1968. Larger than life, Bill lived more in his 67 years than most people could in three lifetimes. He always said he had done the three things all little boys dreamed of doing someday: He was a policeman, rodeo cowboy and rodeo clown, and "ran away with the circus" (worked for theme parks). "Wild Willie," as he was affectionately called in his rodeo days, was an undercover narcotics agent for the Texas Highway Patrol for many years and then worked for Silver Dollar City in Branson, Mo., and retired from Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor in Arlington in 2007. Bill was preceded in death by his son, John Wesley White; and parents, Spike and Darnell White (Kanakuk Kamps) of Branson, Mo. Survivors: His loving wife of 23 years, Linda. He always said she was the first girl he ever kissed (eighth grade) and she would be the last. He left this world hand in hand with his sweet "Jingles." Bill is also survived by his sons, Cody White and wife, Lori, of Brentwood, Tenn., and Scooter Stone and wife, Terri, of Pearland; daughter, Lisa Stone of Wichita Falls; granddaughters, Ashlynn, Kate, Lauren, Megan, Amber and Morgan; brothers, Bob White and wife, Mev, of Bryan and Joe White and wife, Debbie Jo, of Branson, Mo.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
