July 17, 1938 ~ November 8, 2019 (age 81)


James H. White (Jim), 81, Libby, Mt passed November 8, 2019, at Libby Care Center of natural causes, or a possible car accident! He was born on July 17, 1938 in Newport, WA, the oldest son of Jim and Bunnie White. He lived and full and colorful fife, and for all who knew him, would attest to that.


 After a short stay in the United States Coast Guard, he was honorably discharged- "could not take orders too well"-was how he explained it...returned to his home town of Priest River, Idaho, packed his bag (Arkansas traveler - a brown paper bag) and in 1957 headed for Libby, MT where he remained until his death.


In 1982 he married Rhonda, had 1 daughter Lisa; in 1971 Roberta, results, one daughter Patricia; 2 pro-tem daughters Corina and Margret; 5 Grandchildren, and 1 Great Grandchild.


He worked as a logger and heavy equipment operator until a job related incident left him disabled. An avid fisherman, hunter, prankster, and nick name extraordinaire - if he gave you a title, it stuck. Some good, others, not quite so much.


Proceeded in death by his parents Jim (1951) Bunnie (2001) brother Phill (1998) sister Pat (2003), and wife Roberta.


Survivors include his daughters Lisa, Hamilton; Patricia; Kalispell, brother Hank and a sister Linda, Priest River, ID.


A far cry from saint, but a legend for certain. He will be missed.
