Kerry Dean White, Sr., 73, of Maquoketa, Iowa, died Friday, May 22, 2020, at home surrounded by his family.
Cremation will take place at Trimble Crematory, Moline, under the direction of Cremation Society of the Quad Cities.
He was born August 22, 1946, in Iowa City, Iowa, the son of Grant Vincent Sr. and Violet Marie (Downing) White.
Dean spent much of his time on the road, either driving his 18 wheeler or riding his motorcycle, but he was a family man through and through. He loved to barbecue and drink beer. He loved football, especially the Green Bay Packers and the Houston Texans. He always had a story to tell, to anyone who was willing to listen and took his title of social butterfly, very seriously. Above all, though, he was a kind and gentle husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle. He is truly someone that will never be forgotten.
He is survived by his wife, Ruth White; children, Allen Hicks, Kerry White Jr., Violet Cardenas, Merle White, Jason White and Laura White; many grandchildren and a sister, Deborah Morris.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Grant Vincent White Sr. and Violet Marie Downing; his daughter, Kelly White and many siblings.
