JEFFREY LYNN WHITE
Jeffrey Lynn White, son of Raymond C. and Imogene (Eastland) White, was born October 3, 1962 at Omaha, Nebraska.
Jeff was raised on a farm southeast of Mount Ayr. He graduated from Mount Ayr High School in 1981. He enjoyed farming and working with horses. When he did get off the farm, he took his pride and joy, his ’72 Chevy Camaro, to town.
Jeff worked for his dad at the family body shop and at Andy Johnson Chevrolet in Mount Ayr. He also worked at the sale barn.
He spent many hours fishing and enjoyed water skiing and swimming when he could. He loved his nieces, whom he always carried candy for, and his great nieces, who helped him take care of the horses.
Jeff passed away May 27, 2015 at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr after a courageous battle with cancer. He was preceded in death by his father.
