John William White

May 23, 1963 ~ December 26, 2020 (age 57)


John White, 57, passed away on December 26, 2020.

He was married to the love of his life Brenda.

Born in Ogden, Utah, he was the son of Ronald and Roslyn White. He attended Bonneville High School.

 He was employed for the Utah State Liquor Commission.

John loved camping, riding four-wheelers, mowing, and taking care of his lawn, and helping people with their yard care.

He was known for taking his riding lawn mower and making it go faster, and his scooter that he used to get around with when walking became harder. Nothing was going to slow John down.

John loved to take electronics apart, but not necessarily putting them back together. I think that might be hereditary.

John, as we all know, was very stubborn and has a sense of humor not even a mother could love. John had a very special way of showing everyone that he loved and cared about them and it usually involved the middle finger.

John was an avid Denver Broncos and Utah Jazz fan and could be found yelling at the T.V. on most game days.

John loved attending his grandson’s baseball games. He always encouraged his daughter Ashley to play like the boys; she was always the best of everything in his eyes.

John is survived by his wife Brenda White (Nelson), his daughter Ashley Hurst (Chris), parents; Ronald and Roslyn White, his siblings; Tammie Hatch (Steve), Tracie White, Ronnie Simon (Ryan), and Steve White and grandsons; Evan and Brady Hurst.

A Special thanks to the staff at Hidden Valley Assisted Living for the amazing care John received.

Let’s show John your support and wear your Utah Jazz or Denver Broncos attire.
