Dale Lee White
Dale was born July 10, 1953, at Lamar, Mo., the youngest of the three children of Jesse and Corrine (Hagins) White. In 1971, he graduated from Lamar High School, where he had excelled in football, basketball and baseball. His interest in sports continued throughout his life and he especially loved any sport that involved a ball and his children.
On Oct. 18, 1972, at Lamar, Dale married Teresa Ison and their lives revolved around their eight children. In later years, Dale and Teresa enjoyed traveling across the country, making precious memories through time spent together.
Dale had worked in mechanical maintenance at Dickey Clay, in Pittsburg, Kan., as well as O'Sullivan Industries and Epoch, in Lamar, before retiring due to ill health.
