Roy White, 92, of Burlington, passed away June 17, 2018, at Pine Brook Pointe under the care of Serenity Hospice. He was born in Burlington on April 25, 1926, to Harold and Marion (Cooper) White and lived his entire life there.

Roy had many hidden talents like playing the banjo. He as an artist, liked drawing, and had beautiful penmanship. He was a gentle soul who loved animals and all things outdoors.
