Raymond T. White

Died: Aug. 9, 2012

Brother Raymond T. White, 87, of Greeneville, formerly of Cookeville, passed away Thursday at Laughlin Memorial Hospital.

Born April 26, 1925, in Union County, he was a son of the late S.M. and Carrie Callaway White. He grew up on a farm in Jefferson County.

He joined the U.S. Army at age 16 and served four years, two of those in the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign as a rifle marksman. He was awarded his long-deserved medals in 2001.

Rev. White returned to Mascot and married Jackie Norton.

He worked in zinc mines until he surrendered to Christ's calling to full-time service in 1950. He pastored churches in East and Middle Tennessee and South Eastern, Ky.

He graduated from Clear Creek Baptist seminary in 1966, while pastoring full time and raising his family.

He was a Southern Baptist minister and was a member of Clark Range Baptist Church.

Rev. White evangelized in many revivals, served on mission fields, was blessed with a trip to the Holy Land, and served the Tennessee Baptist Convention in tent ministry.

He loved visiting the sick, preaching the gospel, gospel music and golfing. He carried a picture of Jesus in his wallet so he could show people a picture of his best friend.

Rev. White was preceded in death by his wife.

Survivors include three daughters: Theresa Van Daalen of Florida, Debbie and Steve Hale of the Orebank community, and Patricia White of Greeneville; two grandsons: Michael Womack and his wife, Sherie, and Nathan Hale; one granddaughter: Stephanie Hale Bailey and her husband, Jason; four great-granddaughters: Ciara, Alisha, and Madison Womack, and Addie Bailey; several nieces and nephews; his special friends: Melton Loftis, Jimmy Rogers, Jewel Jones, and Woodrow Jackson; and a special caregiver: Kelley Crum.

The family expressed thanks to Laughlin HealthCare for the special caregiving, love, and support.

The family will receive friends from 1-3 p.m. Sunday at Towering Oaks Baptist Church with the funeral service following at 3 p.m. The Rev. Dennis Shumate will officiate.

Interment will be in GreeneLawn Memory Gardens. The Greene Country Honor Guard and the Tennessee National Grand will conduct a military graveside service.

Pallbearers will be Danny Norton, Roy White, Jim White, Mickey Foster, Nathan Hale, and Jason Bailey.

Donations may be made to Towering Oaks Christian School.
