It is with great sadness we say goodbye to our loving husband, dad and grandpa, Steven Lawrence White, 71, of Greeley, CO. He passed away on July 4, 2019. He picked his favorite day as a loyal Amercian that fought for our freedom and liberties. He was born to Russell and Kathryn (Williams) White on July 11, 1947 in Dallas, Texas.
Steve graduated from Highland High School in Albuquerque, NM in 1965.
Steve proudly served in the United States Marine Corp during the Vietnam War, where he earned two purple hearts.
After returning from Vietnam, he met the love of his life, Terry Hoff and they were married on July 5, 1968. They moved to Colorado and had 2 children, Dawn and Doug.
In 1978, Steve and the family moved to Greeley. Steve started his journey with the Ehrlich family and enjoyed 41 years working for the Ehrlich dealerships. Some of his favorite times included his family and travel, especially when the two collided. He loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren, who were his pride and joy, and always enjoyed family vacations. Some vacations being to Steamboat, which were even better when he had grandkids to show the great memories we all had over the years, cruises with his wife, or Disney Cruises with his children and grandchildren.
In 2012, he had the honor and privilege to be selected to go on the Honor Flight of Northern Colorado (now called High Plains Honor Flight).
Steve is survived by his wife of 51 years, Terry (Hoff) White; children, Dawn (John “Meathead” as was called by Steve) and Doug (Terasina) White; grandchildren, Breanna Olson, Caitlyn Olson, Morgan White, and Mason White. He was preceded in death by his parents (Kathryn and Russell) and brother, Edwin White.
