Rubin White


Rubin White, 92, of Wharton, TX passed away peacefully on Monday, June 8, 2020 in a nursing home in Wharton, TX.  He was born on April 10, 1928 in Hungerford, TX to the late Tom White and Gladys Odom White.


Rubin, a life-long resident of Wharton County, along with his wife, Lillian raised their family.  A jack of all trades, Rubin was known to frequent all garage sales and resale shops throughout the years.  He would pick up several bargain treasures and would repair anything that was broken.  Rubin held a variety of titles including cotton farmer and café owner, but he was most proud of being a father and grandfather.  In his time away from the fields and cafes, he could be found playing dominoes and billiards.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Lillian Ann Karasek White; son, Alan Craig White; brothers Charlie White, Tom White, Billy White and Willard White; sister, Helen Alice White and grandson, Todd White.


He is survived by his daughter, Clarice Ward of Wharton; and his sons David Lynn White and wife, Becky of Albuquerque, New Mexico; and Ricky Ray White and wife, Liza also of Albuquerque, New Mexico; brother, Harold White of Wharton and brother, Danny White of El Campo.  In addition to his children and brothers, he leaves 10 grandchildren, 19 great-children as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends.
