William Marion White(1952 - 2019)

William Marion White, "Billy", 66, of Rising Sun, MD, passed away Wednesday, May 8, 2019. He was born in West Grove, PA, on May 23, 1952 to Evelyn B. White and the late Rodney L. White.
For most of his professional career, Billy delivered flowers for Floral Plant Growers in Rising Sun, MD. Billy was a sociable man that never met a stranger. He had a big heart that would help anyone. Billy was not afraid to speak his mind. He got a kick out of being the family instigator and tease, in a playful way. He was a funny guy and was very soft hearted.
Billy was an avid fan of all sports, starting at the very young age of four. He would ride his tricycle to the Little League diamond, spending the entire day there, most every day. He marched in the parades and was a bat boy, before actually playing ball. Later in life, he enjoyed cheering for his favorite teams, the Baltimore Ravens and the Orioles. He was a devoted father and attended all of his son's sporting events. Billy enjoyed tending to his flower gardens, barbecuing and eating crabs. He also liked taking his family on vacations.
Billy is survived by his beloved wife of 25 years, Lynda White; son, Billy White; daughter-in-law, Victoria White; mother, Evelyn White; two sisters: Susan Montgomery, Juanita White; sister-in-law, Mary White; brother-in-law, Harold Montgomery; nephew, Jimmy Montgomery; great nephew, Cody Coale; cousins: Debbie Harris-Lambert, Lynn Harris, Lenny Goodie "Beetle"; his dog, Jacky; and many other extended family members.
In addition to his father, Billy was preceded in death by his brother, Rodney Wayne White; mother-in-law, Carole Anne McCoy; niece, Melissa Montgomery-Coale; and aunt, Madolyn Harris.
