The world lost one of the good ones last Sunday. Blaine White passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 4, 2017 in Mapleton. Blaine left this world exactly how he wanted, at home surrounded by his family. He was 66 years old. He was born on October 27, 1950 in Provo to William and Edith White and spent his entire childhood living all over Utah Valley. Blaine settled down in Spanish Fork when he married Jackie Hales White on September 16, 1972. They were later sealed for eternity in the Provo, UT LDS temple. Jackie is the love of his life and has always been the center of his world.\n\nBlaine had an incredible work ethic and worked for Spanish Fork Foundry and Macca Foundry for over 44 years. He excelled at carpentry and spent hours creating things for his children and friends. Blaine was the craftsman and Jackie was the artist when she would paint the finished projects. He enjoyed his time tinkering with his tools and could fix just about anything. An avid outdoorsman, Blaine treasured the outdoorsand any time he could spend there. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping and was known to haul his trailer up the canyon for days at a time just to get out of the city. His absolute favorite thing to do was to be with his family. Blaine cherished time sitting at his kitchen table and entertaining anyone who came to visit.\n\nBlaine is survived by his best friend and wife of 45 years, Jackie Hales White. He leaves behind 3 daughters, Heather (Eric) Lyman of Salem, Amy (Russell) Schellhous of Spanish Fork, Lori (Dan) Harding of Orem, and 2 sons, Justin (Nadine) White, and Jason White (Heather Lew) both of Spanish Fork.
