Clarence J. White, 90, Dalmatia

— DALMATIA — Clarence Junior White, 90, of Dalmatia, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 10, 2014.

He was born Aug. 3, 1923, in Dalmatia, a son of the late Bernice (Radal) and Edward Lewis White. On Feb. 22, 1947, Clarence married the love of his life, the former Germaine Seachrist, and her death ended a marriage of 65 years.

Clarence, a private first class, served in Company C, 634th Tank Destroyer Battalion, in World War II. He received the Good Conduct Medal, American Theater Service Medal, EAME Theater Service Medal with five Bronze Stars and World War II Victory Medal.

Clarence worked tirelessly at Bethlehem Steel for many years to provide for his family and give college educations to his children and grandchildren. He retired in 1985.

He was a member of Trinity United Church of Christ, American Legion Post 504, Loyal Order of Moose, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Lower Mahanoy and Herndon fire companies and the Northumberland County Senior Center, Herndon.

Clarence enjoyed working in his garden and telling the Phillies how to play baseball. Junior, as many of his friends called him, was proud of his participation on the 1940 Lower Mahanoy Township High School state championship soccer team.

He is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Rick and Judy White, of Dalmatia; one daughter and son-in-law, Connie and Craig Williams, of Birmingham, Ala.; five grandchildren, Aaron White and wife Nina, Bryan White, Maribeth White, Travis Williams and wife Emily and Kelsie Williams; one great-grandson, Liam Gregory White; and one brother, Kenneth White.

He was preceded in death by one brother, Albert Kerstetter, and two sisters, Goldie Rieger and Beulah Ditty.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 14, in Trinity United Church of Christ, Dalmatia, with the Rev. Jonathon Albright officiating. The family will see guests before the service from noon to 2.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Clarence’s memory may be made to Trinity United Church of Christ, P.O. Box 10, Dalmatia, PA 17017.
