Bro. John Calvin White
BELOVED DEACON ERMERITUS ~ 1/4/1932 - 7/26/2016
Terry Tanner, Chairman of Deacons
I married my high school sweetheart, Ann 48 years ago. We have four children and nine grandchildren. I served in the USMC for three years. I love serving the Lord in my church and helping people in need. I love to fish and hunt but I will not allow my hobbies to take preference over serving God or my church. I get up early to be alone, read and study God's Word and pray for His guidance.
I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior in 1959 and became a Deacon in 1960. My precious wife, Idella and I have been married for 62 years. We have five grown children, seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. I retired after 27 years in Data Processing from International Paper Company. My favorite chapter in all the Bible is Isaiah 55.
I met and married my beautiful wife, Sybil 37 years ago. Sybil and I have two daughters, Derynn and Shawna. We have three prcious grandsons. Of all the churches in which I have served, I love my Snow Road First Baptist Church family and truly appreciate my Pastor, fellow Deacons and their humble spirit.
Judy and I have been married for 51 years. We have three children and eleven grandchildren. I serve as a Deacon, teach the Senior Men's Sunday School Class and sing in the Choir. I am also a member of the Mobile West Gideon Camp. Judy and I enjoy traveling and hope to visit all fifty states. I enjoy playing golf, riding my motorcycle and working on old cars.
I have been married to my wonderful wife, Donna for 37 years. God has blessed me abundantly with a wonderful son and daughter in law and the absolute joy of our lives, our precious grandson, Reed Joseph. We love spending time with him as often as we can. I love serving in my church in many different areas. I am a truly blessed man.
My favorite chapter in all the Bible is Psalm 23. While in Vietnam, I memorized Psalm 23 and repeated it often. It helped me to make it through a very difficult time of life. I have been married to my wife, Evelyn for 44 years. After 33 years I retired from Scott Paper Company. We have three children and five grandchildren. My favorite hobby is fishing.
My wife, Dorothy and I have been married for 44 years. God blessed us with three children, Nita, Randy and Gina. I was employed at the S. D. Warren Division of Scott Papper Company for thirty years.
I served in the USAF and was honorably discharged in 1972. I gave my life to Jesus Christ in 1972 while attending Chickasaw First Baptist Church. I met my wife, the former Linda Jenkins in 1974 and we were married in Humble, TX in January, 1979. We have two sons and one daughter; Kristopher 35, Shannon 34 and Nicholas 33. We have two grandchildren, Maci and Wyatt. I have been employed with Momar, Inc, a chemical manufacturer based in Atlanta since 1984 and serve as one of the Vice Presidents. In my spare time I enjoy swimming, going to the shooting range, watching sports and most of all being involved with my grandchildren. My greatest joy is supporting and helping them be the best they can be in whatever endeavor they attempt. I am a huge Alabama fan and attend every game I can. When I can't be at a game, you'll hear the loudest ROLL TIDE coming from my home in Semmes!
