Robert White, 79, of Hamden, peacefully passed away at CT hospice on October 3rd after a brief illness. He was born in New Haven to Alice White (McLaughlin) and Guy C. White (Alice).
He worked in the roofing industry for his entire career. He founded RH White Roofing, where he employed many roofers who went on to start their own businesses or work as supervisors for other roofing companies. He later worked in sales for roofing contractors and then roofing product manufacturers. He always had a joke to tell, sometimes corny, and he carried extra photos of his pride and joy for anyone who wanted a copy.
He is survived by his sister Patricia White Bruneau (William) of Leesburg, FL, and Guy C White (Carolyn) of Ocala FL, his sons Robert H. White Jr. of Hamden, Brian Alan White (Pat) of Apex, NC, Kevin Edward White(Eileen) of Hamden, Scott Andrew White (Maria) of Hamden, and Michael Milici (Pam) of Hamden. He is also survived by five grandchildren, Kristen, Stephanie, Kyle, Andrew and Alexander, and great-grandchildren.
Friends attended the memorial service at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel church Friday, Oct 11, 2019.
