Everett (E.P.) White, Jr., of Taylor, and formerly of Old Forge, died Tuesday evening under the care of Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit, Dunmore, after an illness. Surviving is his high school sweetheart, his best friend and his adoring wife, Ann Kirel White.
Raised in Old Forge and son of the late Everett, Sr., and Sarah Scandale White, Everett was a graduate of Old Forge High School. A lifelong automobile enthusiast, he retired after working many years as service manager at Coccia Ford. Upon retirement, he worked 15 years alongside his son, Jeff, at Jeff’s car lot, J.W. Auto Sales in Trucksville.
He had a lifelong passion for classic cars, especially hot rods. He was a fixture at local car shows and he was also a former member of the Pocono Drag Lodge. He was a loving husband, father, “pop pop”, brother, relative and friend, who adored his grandchildren. He had great pride in all of their accomplishments, from Kara attending Temple University to Justin’s ability to disassemble and reassemble an automobile. He greatly enjoyed spending time with them, even if it involved his grandson, Noah, continually beating him in checkers and blackjack.
He loved people and because of his kind heart, friendliness and amazing humor, people loved him back. Recognized wherever he went, he especially loved his coffee mornings with the gang at Burger King. Loved by many, he will be forever missed.
Of Roman Catholic faith, he was a member of Saint Ann Basilica Parish in West Scranton.
He is survived by his three children, Randy White and wife Lisa and Shelly White, all of Old Forge, and Jeffrey White of Lehighton; seven grandchildren, Megan, Amanda, Katrina, Justin, Kara, Noah, and Billy and wife Lindsey; two great grandchildren, Chase and Lilly; a sister, Rosemarie Brown of California; a half-brother, James White of Virginia.; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
His family wishes to thank both the inpatient and outpatient staff of
Hospice of the Sacred Heart, Moses Taylor Hospital’s 3rd Floor Nurse’s Aides, Dr. John Diakiw and nurse, Shannon, and lastly, Dr. Martin Hyzinski, for the amazing collective care given to Everett throughout his illness.
A blessing service is scheduled for Saturday at noon in the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge. Burial will follow at Old Forge Cemetery. Relatives and friends may pay their respects on Saturday between 10-12:00PM at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of the Sacred Heart, c/o 600 Baltimore Drive # 7, Wilkes-Barre, Pa., 18702.
