By on October 21, 2015

Peter White, 76, of Lititz, took his first breath of Heaven’s wonderful, fresh, perfect air and walked into the arms of his dearly loved Savior on Oct. 11, 2015. He is finally home.

Born in New York City, N.Y., he was the son of the late Harold and Pauline Press White. He was the loving husband of Rebecca L. Richmond White for 25 years on Oct. 6.

Peter attended Lititz Grace Church, where he was a greeter and a member of the Encouragers Sunday School class. He proudly served his country in the United States Navy. Peter was employed by Battery Warehouse in quality control and retail sales until the decline in his health. He was an avid Penn State fan, train enthusiast, and Civil War buff. He especially enjoyed visiting Gettysburg battlefields with his family.

While he is now enjoying perfect health, he was loved and will be missed by many, including his wife; three sons: Jason, husband of Cynthia Brown White, of Dover, and their son, Matthew Culler; Jeffrey, husband of Susan Scarantino White, and their sons, Adam and Monroe, of Sterling, Va.; and Timothy White at home; a brother: Donald White of Highlands, N.J.; many nieces and nephews; his friends that became as family; his church family, and co-workers.

We have way too many to thank for their love and support during his fight with cancer. We pray you know who you are. We would like to give a heart-felt thank you to his home care hospice team… you are the best.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, Oct. 31, at 1:43 p.m., at Lititz Grace Church, 501 W. Lincoln Ave., Lititz, with Pastor William Willard officiating. There will be no viewing. The family will receive friends at the church from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., prior to the service.
