Richard "Dicky" Alden White

November 30, 1948 — May 31, 2024

Richard "Dicky" Alden White of Rustburg passed away on Friday, May 31, 2024. He was the son of the late Jack and Elizabeth "Bussie" White. He was preceded in death by brothers John and Link.

 

Dicky served in the U.S. Army. He was employed by Meredith Burda/RR Donnelley for 31 ½ years and later worked for Presbyterian Homes and Family Services/Humankind. Dicky was a member of Hyland Heights Baptist Church. He loved his country, the American flag, and a well mowed lawn.

 

But most of all, he loved his family. Dicky is survived by his wife, Sandy, and their children Heather Husser (David), Leigh Ann White, Nathan White (Carrie), Kim Lemburg (Phil), Lori Ann Waddell, and Felipe Colonese Schaumburg. He was the best Pop Pop to grandchildren; Liam, Drake, Willow, Crew, Sadie, Christina, and Ozzie. Dicky is also survived by his mother-in-law Edythe Mullagh, sisters-in-law; Jane White, Jo White, Debbie Bozeman (Steve), Diane Dodson (Thomas), and Marie Etter (Darl) and many extended family members. He will be terribly missed by his feline partner-in-crime, Simba.

 

A memorial service will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 6, 2024, at Tharp Funeral Home, Lynchburg. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Reception to follow the service. 

 

The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks to Gentle Shephard Hospice, Dicky's caregivers, and the wonderful folks of the Greenhouse Road community for their love and support.
