David "Dave" Robert White passed on Oct. 13, 2018, in Prescott from complications of cancer. Dave was born in Schenectady, N.Y., on March 4, 1952, to Russell and Frances White. He graduated from Howard High School in Maryland in 1971. He then graduated from DeVry Institute of Technology in Phoenix in 1973. Dave majored in electronic technology. He worked as a test engineer, production foreman and area field service manager. He was promoted to sales engineer where he was responsible for the sale of wafer probers in four states. Dave started his own corporation, Sort Technologies and retired in 2000.

Dave dedicated his retirement time to volunteering in his community of Yarnell. He was a full time resident of the community since 1991. He was a driver for the Meals on Wheels program at the Yarnell Community Center. Dave was also on the scholarship committee for the Sons of the American Legion and helped with monthly meals at the American Legion Post 79. He volunteered at Model Creek School, tutoring students and created the Million Words Reading Club in 2015. Dave was always helping his neighbors and community members.

Dave is survived by his wife Trudy; sister Teresa White; sister and brother-in-law Mary and Pete Barlow; brothers Steve and Tim White; daughter and son-in-law Dyanna and Bryan Hoey; and three grandchildren Matthew, Clayton and Audrey Hoey.

A celebration of life will be held on Feb. 9, 2019, at 2 p.m. at the American Legion Post 79 in Yarnell. All are welcome to attend and celebrate his gracious life. In lieu of flowers, donate to one of the community services where he volunteered.
