October 2, 1950 — November 17, 2018

Thomas F. White, 68, of Caro, formerly of Cass City, died following a brief illness Saturday, November 17, 2018 in McLaren Bay Region. He was born October 2, 1950 in Cass City, the third of seven children born to Frank “Bud” Frederick and Mae Elizabeth (Karr) White.

Following his military commitment, he was self-employed as an independent long-distance truck driver. He enjoyed working on “hot rods” in his spare time and was fond of his 1961 Chevy Impala. Tom’s hobbies included deer hunting and flying remote control airplanes. He loved spending time with family and friends camping, especially in Evergreen Park.
