Robert Lee "Bob" White, grandson of Neal and Elizabeth (Alley) White. "Our family has lost another member. My Uncle Bob passed away this week. He was the youngest and the last of Dads brothers and sisters. Uncle Bob was always so kind and nice to his nieces and nephews and very witty. All of Dads family was unforgettable characters. Uncle Bob had all kinds of stories of Granddad White. He lived through many traumatic experiences with Granddad at the wheel. Since he was the youngest he spent more time with Granddad one on one. I think that during that time you could say that it built moral fiber." -- "Country Gal", by Vanita (White) Blundell, The Western Star, February 5, 2008.
