Orson White

Orson White, 78, of Morgantown, passed away Monday (Nov. 26, 2012) at Ruby Memorial Hospital surrounded by his family.

Orson was born Sept. 12, 1934 in Huttonsville, son to the late Forrest and Luttie Rush White.

Orson retired from Sterling Faucet with more than 30 years of service. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt, fish and camp, but more than anything he cherished time with his family.

He is survived by his wife, Janet White; daughters and spouses, Beverly and Victor Alvarez, Joyce and Donnie Deuesenberry, Carol Gallagher, Tracie and Rodney Butcher, and Trina and Randy DeBerry; grandchildren and spouses, Bret and Joanna Deuesenberry, Amanda and Corey Powell, Kayla Roush and fiancé Steven Williams, Chris Alvarez, Holly Alvarez, Joe Travinski, Timothy Roush, Arieka Roush Brook, and Michael Verbosky and Pvt. Amanda Tennant; and great-grandchildren, Hunter Deuesenberry, Ava Powell and Hudson Deuesenberry. Also surviving are two brothers, Frank Goff White of Morgantown and Cleo White of Fort Myers, Fla.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brothers, Edward Mace, Brian Mace and Robert Bay White.

To honor Orson’s wishes, there will be no visitation or funeral.

Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at Cedar Grove Cemetery, Mount Morris, Pa., with Pastor Dan Meadows officiating. The family would then like to invite friends to join them for a time of remembrance at the Brookhaven Community Center from 2-6 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ronald McDonald House, 841 Country Club Road, Morgantown, WV 26505, in memory of Orson White.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
