GLEN REX WHITE
Glen White, 61, of Canova, SD, passed away on Thursday March 21, 2019, as the result of a garbage truck accident near Mitchell.
Funeral services were held on Saturday, March 30 at Sun Prairie Baptist Church, rural Salem, SD.
Glen was born on April 15, 1957, to Rex and Lillian (Anderson) White of rural Cogswell, ND. He graduated from Sargent Central High School in Forman, ND, in 1975. He was enlisted in the Army National Guard Unit in Sisseton. At that time, he farmed for Terry Zimbelman in Oakes, ND, and worked at Melrose in Gwinner, ND.
In 1982, he married Deb Palmquist of Canova. They lived in Williston, ND, where Glen worked for Connor Sales driving truck hauling tanks and treaters to the oil fields. In 1986 they moved to Sioux Falls and then to rural Canova. Glen worked various jobs in the area to include construction for Iron Wheel in Salem and currently at Dawson Construction in Howard.
Glen was an active member of the Sun Prairie Baptist Church. He loved getting to know people and lending a helping hand. He was so giving to others. If there was anything you may have said you could use or he thought you needed, you can be assured there would be a surprise hidden in your vehicle or garage or wherever.
He loved his family and never missed a gathering. Glen liked hunting, bowling, and playing cards. He enjoyed his four-wheeling trips with his boys and grandson, Westen. He also enjoyed tractor pulls and gun shows with friends. He had big hands and a loving heart.
Grateful for sharing his life are his two sons, Jeremy (Jessica) White of rural Letcher, SD, and Jasten (Angie) White of Alexandria, SD; grandkids, Westen, Aurelia and Aveline of Letcher, and Skya and Ryzen of Alexandria; brothers, Vern (Marilyn) of Oakes, ND, and Paul of Fargo, ND; sisters, Jeannie (Boyd) Sherrard of Aberdeen and Linda (Kenny) Teske of Oakes, ND; and cousins Bruce (Carol) Anderson, David (Virginia) Anderson of Britton, Jim (Lyn) Anderson of Pierze, MN, Russel (Gwen) Anderson, Louie (Val) Anderson of Cogswell, ND, and Henry (Anita) Anderson. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings, Michael, Randell, Carolyn, James and Susan.
