Born in Dickson City, son of the late Harry and Martha Eley White, he was a graduate of Dickson City High School, and attended the University of Scranton. He retired from All Phase Electrical after committing 52 years to various electrical distributors.
John was a loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather who enjoyed being surrounded by his family. He died peacefully surrounded by his family. He was a man of strength and determination. Being a 23-year cancer survivor is one way these traits shined.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to Home Health Care professionals and hospice for all their kind and compassionate care.
