Brother of IFW founder dead at 59
Volume 25 Summer
Life is a narrow vale between the cold and barren peaks of two eternities. We strive in vain to look beyond the heights. We cry aloud—and the only answer is the echo of our wailing cry. From the voiceless lips of the unreplying dead there comes no word. But in the night of Death Hope sees a star and listening Love can hear the rustling of a wing. "At His Brother's Grave" - Robert Green Ingersoll (1833-1899)
Jonathon "Jon" Dale White, 59, of College Station, brother of IFW founder David White, passed away on Monday, August 16, 2010, at the College Station Medical Center.
Funeral services were held Saturday, August 21, 2010, at Hillier Funeral Home with burial at Bryan City Cemetery.
Jon was born on May 7, 1951 in Mattoon, IL, to Geneva and Herbert White. He grew up in McAllen,TX, where his family moved to shortly after his birth and graduated from McAllen High School in 1969. Jon's people skills were appreciated by his customers through his 30 plus year career as a barber in College Station until his retirement earlier this year. Jon loved arrow head hunting, Indian artifacts, fishing, reading, and spending time with people. He always had a way with people to make them feel special.
Survivors include his loving brother: David White and wife Lynn of College Station; two cousins, and a host of friends within Bryan/College Station that he was a barber for. Jon never met a stranger, and was a loving and caring friend.To view Jon's full obituary and sign his guest book, click HERE.
