Obituary of Roger "Bud" White
Peacefully, surrounded by his family at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, Roger “Bud” White at the age of 89. Beloved husband of 68 years to Elizabeth “Beth” (Smyth). Born in Chatham in 1932, son of the late Kathleen (Allin) and Gray White. Loving father of Catherine Glendinning, Mary Beth (Joe) Rush, Brian (Laura), Michael, and Tim White (Deb McMillan). Dearest grandfather of 12 grandchildren, Jennifer Glendinning, Sara (Darryl) Hoekstra, Meredith (Jordan) Gobert, Lisa (Paul) Vilaranda, Renee, Rachel, Paul, Melissa (Liam), Kaitlynn, Jillian (Armando), and Vanessa White (Brad) and Geoff McMillan. He is also survived by 16 great-grandchildren, his brothers-in-law Joe (Pat), Jim (Louise), Dan (Diane), John (Carol) Smyth, and several nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his brothers Robert “Bob” and William “Bill” White.
Bud was born and lived his entire life in Chatham. He worked at Campbell Soup Company for 40 years, retiring in 1992. He could tell a great story, had an endless knowledge of trivia and enjoyed a good game of pool. Bud loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing and spending time at the "Eau". He was also a big fan of baseball and hockey and followed just about every game, regardless of who was playing. We will all miss him.
