Dr.  Robert A. White Obituary
Dr. Robert Arthur White, of Winchester, passed peacefully from the living to the eternal on Sept. 30, 2017, in the presence of his loving family. He remained to the end a true gentleman, an extraordinary musician, an avid outdoorsman, and a completely devoted husband and father. He has now joined his lovely wife, Marilyn, his true love, musician, and enthusiastic spirit, who passed in 2016. His children, Robert White and Cynthia Wankowicz, and their families were truly blessed by Bobs kindness, gentle spirit, and twinkling personality. His grandchildren, Ania, and Jahn White, and Alex, Chris, and Gabby Wankowicz were all nurtured by his love, devotion, and sense of humor. Graduate of New England Conservatory, Harvard, and BU, he was Professor extraordinaire at UMass Lowell, where he taught for 33 years. All his students benefitted from his creativity and passion for all genres of music. Fabulous Choir Director at the First Congregational Church in Winchester, he led the singers and bell choirs for 42 years in joyful song.
