Our beloved father and grandfather passed away peacefully on September 12, 2011.

Bill was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on May 12, 1927 to William Frederick and Alta Priscilla White. He was the second child of seven and the oldest son.

He married his sweetheart, Elsa Fae Price White, on August 18, 1948 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with six children whom Bill loved very much.

Bill was drafted into the Army at the end of World War II and was assigned to Puerto Rico where he was able to help defend the Panama Canal. His time in Puerto Rico was always a favorite memory of his.

Bill worked as a Patternmaker at EIMCO Foundry from the time he left the Army until he retired. He could do wonderful things with wood and his family has many treasures he created for them.

Bill was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many capacities during his life.

He served two Stake Missions in the South Salt Lake Stake. He and his wife also served as Service Missionaries later in life, extracting names for the Family History Library.

Bill and his wife also spent many happy hours serving as patrons in the Jordan River Temple. Those times were some of his most cherished memories.

He is survived by his sons, William LaMar (Jeannie) and Sherman Leslie (Pam), both of Bluffdale, Utah and Paul Roy of Duchesne, Utah. His daughters, Linda Fae (Vaughn) Weston of Kearns, Utah and Ella Loraine White of Bluffdale, Utah. He is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, a sister and three brothers. He is preceded in death by his sweetheart, Elsa and his daughter, Pamela, a great-grandson, a sister, a brother, and his parents.
