Owen L. White, Sr.

Owen L. White, Sr., 87, of Ephrata, PA was called home to be with his Lord on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, at Fairmount Homes Retirement Community, where he resided.  He was the loving husband of the late Beulah F. (Feil) White, who passed away January 23, 2016.

Born on January 12, 1932 in Livermore Falls, Maine, Owen was a son of the late Amos and Elsie (Richmond) White.  He worked for the Rockville Centre Parks Department in Long Island, NY as a Parks Department Foreman.

Owen was a member of Grace Point Church of the Nazarene in Ephrata, PA.

He was a joy to be with and taught those around him what it meant to serve others in love.  Owen will be remembered for his smile and how he loved to share God's blessings with family, friends and acquaintances.

Surviving Owen are three daughters: Nona-Sue Mellish (the late Tim Mellish), Oklahoma City, OK, Kristie Bonham, Edmond, OK, Marilyn (Mark) Harris, Yukon OK, and two sons: Owen Jr. (Patty), Ephrata, PA, and Barry (Cheryl), Minoa, NY; 15 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.

Hambrick and Owen White III officiating.  There will be a visitation at the church before the service from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.  A light meal will be provided in the church café for family and friends following the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Owen's name may be made to Grace Point Church of the Nazarene.

Dear Family, I want to offer my deepest sympathy on the passing of Owen. Pray to God for comfort. He will help because God cares for you. 1Peter 5:7
~ Naomi
While I did not know Owen Sr., knowing two men of the next generations for over thirty years now who bear his name tell me a lot about who he was. What an amazing godly legacy and heritage he and his wife have left. I am sorry to be unable to attend his funeral due to other commitments but if his wife's service was any indication, it will be an amazing homegoing. May God comfort Owen Jr. and the rest of the family as you remember and mourn.
