Rex Harding White, 96, of Mason, WV, went home to be with the Lord Monday, August 28, 2017, at Pleasant Valley Hospital, while surrounded by his loving family. He was born January 31, 1921, on a farm in Kettle, WV, (Roane County), a son to the late Romie White and Lessie Moore White. He was a retired boilermaker and belonged to Boilermakers Local Union #667 in Winfield, WV, for over 60 years. He trained in Vancouver, WA, and helped build the ships for WW II. He worked in many power plants across the U.S. After retiring he and Sarah, his beloved wife of 63 years, spent the winters near lake Okeechobee, Fla. He loved football, baseball, and was an avid outdoorsman, who loved to hunt and fish. He had a quick wit, and so many friends, and was loved by many. Most of all he was a Christian.
