He was devoutly religious and deeply loved his family. Bob was born in Concord, California, to a tightly-knit family with eight siblings. He graduated from Berkeley then joined the Peace Corps in Peru. He later enrolled at the University of Michigan for his MBA, and there met his wife Katy. Bob and Katy were married 40 years and raised and were very proud of their four children, Christine, Peter, Lisa, and Matthew, and two grandchildren.

He loved to travel and had made his way around the globe. He was interested in genealogy and history; he was a stamp collector; he was a jack of all trades and hand-built additions to his two homes as well as myriad home tasks and woodworking projects.

He also passed the California State Bar, that same year. Bill had an incredible work history. He started in the late 1950's as a radio disc jockey while writing articles and taking pictures for the LA Times. In the early 1960s, he moved to the Island of Kauai, where he was part of a group that built the radio station KAUI. He was a great storyteller and always had a fascinating tale to tell about his time in Kauai and the many adventures in his news reporting and law careers. During the next 20 years, Bill moved to Northern California and worked for the California Department of Justice, and also as a Stanislaus County Deputy Sheriff and Sheriff's Pilot. During the 1960's, Bill attended the McGeorge School of Law. He later transitioned to a career as an investigative reporter and photographer for the Oroville Mercury Register and Redding Record Searchlight.

Bill then became a Butte County Public Defender until his retirement in 2014. In 2015, he was sworn in as a Judge Pro Tem. He was excited to be on the other side of the bench. In recent years, Bill's passion was Oroville Sunrise Rotary Club. He spearheaded efforts to bring together the Monday Club and both Oroville Rotary clubs as co-owners of the Historic Monday Club building. He was also instrumental in starting an Interact Club at Oroville High School, which has grown to be a driving force for community service. In 2013-2014 Bill was Governor of Rotary District 5180. Bill was always ready for a glass of good wine and a fine cigar. He loved Apple computer products, fishing in Alaska and family trips to Ashland and Mendocino.

White, Lawrence L.  
In Loving Memory Lawrence L. White Feb. 1, 1933 - May 16, 2016 Beloved father, devoted husband and cherished friend, Larry White, passed away at age 83 on May 16, 2016. Larger than life with a size 14 footprint, Larry White made his mark in the communities of Los Gatos, Watsonville, Ukiah, and Willits. His exuberant love of life and especially its challenges claimed him fame in his great circle of friends and beaming pride of family. From small-town country boy in Willits, he was self-made...self-educated, enterprising, athletic, generous, handsome and FUN. A gentleman with class and style, yet a man's man and true leader with incomparable drive. He had a commanding presence and infectious spirit, taking on challenges others wouldn't dare. His risk for adventure and pushing the limits gained him respect and awe. His 'real' stories were numerous–matched only by the great number of friends he carried through life. A true testament of the man. With roots in Mendocino County and logging in the redwoods, he would be drafted in the Army at Seaside's Fort Ord in '54 where, as a soldier, he met the love of his life, Annie Jo. They would be married a lifetime. With the pay as a milkman, Western Sales Champion for Meadow Gold, they raised a big family beginning in Watsonville. Night classes mixed with men's basketball leagues (he played against the Globe Trotters and was the tall guy they made fun of) afforded him a move to Los Gatos. There he entered commercial real estate and helped change the half-vacant and suffering economy of this sweet, charming little town to a place to be. He was big in the Lion's club becoming President and known for his dynamic personality and famous skirt steak marinade. Success didn't change him. Retirement for Larry would be Hereford ranching back in Little Lake Valley of Willits. He never lost his love for the country and big trees. Boy did he love it! His ranch became one of best maintained around with a charming 1870's farmhouse. He was proud of the 4 miles of fence he hand-built around the property and continues to be a favorite scene in the valley. But more than anything else in life family meant everything. He leaves behind his wife of 62 years, JoAnn Meidl White; sons Joseph and Jeffery; daughters Christine, Kym, and Jennifer; 14 grandchildren and several great grandchildren each with a story to tell of their great, tall Papa. He will truly be missed. View the online memorial for Lawrence L. White
