Clyde J. White Sr.
1929 - 2017
OAKLAND - It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Clyde "Jack" White Sr., of Oakland, passed away on Aug. 8, 2017.
Jack was born in Chattanooga, Tenn., on March 26, 1929. His journey led him to Maine where he met the love of his life, Beverly. They were married in September 1950. They shared a long life together and have two children, Clyde and Linda.
Jack gave his family many gifts: to his wife, his heart and his soul; to his children, his love and values; to those who knew him, his friendship.
In 1994, Jack retired from the Cascade Woolen Mill. During retirement and throughout his life, he vacationed with his wife in New England and enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, four-wheeling, and snowmobiling.
He had many friends, most of whom have passed before him, who shared his hobbies and his friendship. One of these was Percy Peters, who was always there to share a laugh, tell stories and hunting/fishing adventures.
Jack was predeceased by his father and mother, Malhon and Edna White, of Oakland; and brothers Bob and Albert, of Waterville, and Wheeling, W.V.
Jack left us with his love, his friendship, his smile and many memories.
He always told his family he loved them...
So good night, Jack, father, husband and friend. We will always love you and miss you
.
Jack is survived by his wife, Beverly; his children, Clyde and Linda; daughter-in-law, Rachael; son-in law, Rick; two sisters, Doris Cummings, and Shirley Kelly and her husband Alfred; and a sister-in-law, Mabel Nicholas, and husband Bob.
Our special thanks to Augusta Center for Health and Rehabilitation, whose staff provided their loving care.
A private gravesite memorial at Lewis Cemetery will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the care of Direct Cremation of Maine, 182 Waldo Ave., Belfast. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family at: www.directcremationofmaine.com.
