Michael Allen White, age 36, of Pittsburg, Kan., unexpectedly passed away Saturday evening, June 3, 2017, at Via Christi Hospital in Pittsburg.
Michael and his twin brother, Kevin, were born February 22, 1981, in Pittsburg, to Dale and Teresa (Ison) White. He graduated from Frontenac High School in 2000. Michael enriched others through his cheerful disposition, generous nature, and zest for life. An avid collector, Michael was a regular at auctions and flea markets, buying Coca Cola items, guns, and fishing gear. But by far, his greatest collection was the countless number of friends he accumulated throughout his life. Michael was eager to participate in any outing or gathering with family or friends and a great day for him would include fishing and a picnic. Quiet times were filled with word searches, puzzles, computer games, and his newly-discovered pastime, Facebook.
Michael was preceded in death by his father, Dale; grandparents, Jesse and Corrine White and Willard and Lavona Ison; and two uncles, Steve White and Willie Ison.
Survivors include his mother, Teresa White, Pittsburg; two sisters, Brandi (Gabe) Lee, Frontenac, Kan., and Ashia (Brent) Chapman, Joplin, Mo.; five brothers, Kevin (Kadi) White, Lamar, Mo., Markell (Aubri) White, Jamie White, Justin (Sami) White, all of Frontenac, and Shawn (Sammy) White, Lamar; eight nieces and nephews, Austin C., Riley, Annie, Myah, Asher, Austin W., Sophia, and Moralia; aunts, Jan Pierce, Carthage, Mo., and Diane Ison, Lamar; a large extended family and many friends.
A funeral service followed by visitation will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 7th, at Daniel Funeral Home.
