William J. White Obituary
November 9, 1922 - October 2, 2016 Husband, Father, Brother, Uncle, Grandfather Researcher, Engineer, and Life-Long Learner Our father's focus has always been on the present and into the future. Rarely did he share his past experiences or personal thoughts. Yet, we knew his influence went from the depths of the ocean to the outer reaches of the atmosphere. How does one write an obituary that encompasses all that he has done? We have a few quotes that help describe him and our lives with him: "What have I done that is truly great? My work at Wright-Patterson AFB and Douglas Aircraft during the Cold War years and some of my consulting and research made a difference." "I have experienced truly great love in my life with my wives Mary M. White and Margaret R. Goldschmidt." "My legacy is my family; eight children whom I love and long for; my joy and my crown." Our father inspired many, including his children: Ellen, Teresa, Anne, Philip, Paul, Martha, Ursula and Clancy as well as his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He will be missed.
