I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing II Timothy 4; 7-8.

Gene White was born on September 5, 1939 in Manard, Cherokee Co., OK to Edmond and Maude (Huitt) White and passed from this life on Friday May 20 at his home in Lowrey after a lengthy battle with Leukemia. Gene attended school at Manard, Ft. Gibson and Hulbert before marrying the love of his life, Patsy Rotramel on September 1, 1956. To this union were born four children; Carla, Owen, Sandra and Terrill. Throughout the years Gene worked several jobs from working in the ship yards in San Francisco Bay to peddling fruit but is probably most known in Tahlequah for owning the Tire Shed on the south side of town throughout the early 80's and also as a fence contractor for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Gene was an avid farmer and loved to work with his cows and admired the work he had done on the 20 acres he and his wife lived on in northern Cherokee County. He also enjoyed "wheeling and dealing" through the radio program "TradeWinds" and loved going to livestock sells.
Gene will probably most be remembered for his faith having overcome terminal illness twice in his life. Once in 1988 when he was diagnosed with lung cancer and then again in 2001 when he overcame cancer of the sinus'. He knew where his help came from and would be the first to tell you that if it hadn't been for the Lord, he would not have made it as long as he did. He loved attending church when his health would allow and did so at Faith Chapel and Masena Holiness Church.
Gene was preceded in death by his parents; his daughter, Carla; a grand-daughter, Hannah Davis; two brothers, Beck and Alfred White; and two sisters, Helen Stilwell and Geneva Sturm.
He is remembered by those he leaves behind including his wife Patsy, of the home; two sons, Owen and Terrill; daughter, Sandra Hall: and grand-son, Jesse Hall, all of Tahiequah. He also leaves behind one brother W.M. "Bub" White of Petaluma, CA; three sisters, Roxie and husband Floyd Baughman of Muskogee, Joyce Whitlock of Boca Raton, FL. and Martha Perry of Ft. Gibson; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
