October 5, 1932 - February 1, 2021
Robert "Bob" Torrence White, 88, of Davidson, died February 1, 2021. He was born on October 5, 1932 in Evesham Township, Moorestown, New Jersey to the late Mildred (Baker) and Ralph Torrence White. Bob graduated from Duke University in 1952 and served in the US Army from 1953-1955. He co-founded Piedmont Plastics in 1968. Bob was a devoted environmentalist and contributed innumerable hours towards maintaining the integrity of Mecklenburg County’s watershed. In addition, he volunteered his time and effort to several other local charitable causes. Bob and Jeanie, his wife of 65 years, traveled the world and spent much of their lives in England. Bob was an avid botanist and dutifully tended his gardens here and abroad. Upon his retirement, Bob became active in the field of genealogy and he combed long forgotten alcoves of history in search of nuggets of information to explain his heritage. Bob’s interest in genealogy was a natural fit for his personality – it required a passion for being meticulous and thorough – and he loved the minutiae. Bob’s wit and wisdom are legendary within the family. He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed. Survivors include his wife Eugenia Justice White; sons Craig White and wife Trisha of Davidson and Garth White and wife Sandy of Charlotte; daughter Lettie Murr and husband Victor of Charlotte; and 7 grandchildren: Stephanie Murr (husband Adam Fisher), Scott Murr, Sarah Murr, Lauren White, Krista White (husband Drew Hickey), Grayson White and Anna White. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Robinson-Spangler Carolina Room at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library Main Branch. Family service at a later date. James Funeral Home of Huntersville is serving the family.
