Richard White #17 is no longer with us. The below obituary was published back in 2009.
WHITE, Richard E.
Richard was born on Dec. 1, 1956, in Chicago, Ill., and passed away in Sacramento on Feb. 6, 2009, at the age of 52. He was born with a rare and severely disabling disease (Mucolipidosis), resulting in numerous major surgeries, extended hospitalizations and almost continuous pain throughout his entire life. In 1977 with his family he came to Sacramento where he attended and graduated from Sacramento State University, majoring in Business Administration. For over 20 years he was employed as an Auditor by the Department of Motor Vehicles, where he looked forward to working each day and where he was loved and cherished. He enjoyed traveling, studying history, watching sporting events and learning the Russian language. He is survived and greatly missed by his loving family: his parents Margaret and Richard White and his sister Carolyn White of Sacramento; his sister and brother-in-law Elaine and Russell Swerdon and nephews Colin and Matthew Swerdon of Pleasanton, Calif. Friends and family are invited to attend a Rosary at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 12, 2009, at St. Joseph’s Church, 32890 South River Rd., Clarksburg, Calif., and the Mass of Christian Burial at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 13, 2009, at St. Joseph’s Church in Clarksburg.
