Our beloved Larry White went home to be with the Lord on December 12, 2021, at the age of 78.
Larry was born to Talmadge and Evelyn White on October 23, 1943, and lived all of his life in Excelsior Springs. He graduated from ESHS in 1962 and served overseas in the Army before being honorably discharged in 1971. Larry worked locally over the years and enjoyed hunting, reading his Bible, and spending time with his family and pets. After his marriage to Betty in 1997, he became an instant father and grandfather, but his care and giving spirit to his family would soon earn him the special title of “papaw”. He was dearly loved by his wife and family, but we take comfort knowing that Larry accepted Jesus as his Savior, and one day, we will see him again in Glory.
Larry was preceded in death by his parents, Talmadge and Evelyn White.
He is survived by his wife, Betty; his three children, Shari (Rick), Cathy (Bryon), and Steve; his grandchildren, Leasa (Jason), Ross (Lana), and Sara; as well as his brothers, Bill and Noel; his sister, Linda; and his little dog, Toot.
A memorial service will be planned and announced at a later time.
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
Our Sincere Condolences
Peace be with the family at this difficult time of loss. Blessed Be.
So sorry for your loss, prayers and thoughts for Judy and the family.
James A. Craven
My condolences and prayers for comfort are with you. I worked with Larry at the pasta plant for three years and we became good friends. I admired and appreciated his common sense and wisdom. I would often stay over my shift for an hour because our conversations were so good. He taught me to squirrel hunt, which I have enjoyed ever since. He was a great friend and patriot. He will be missed.
