Kevin Paul White – dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and friend – passed away in Spanish Fork, Utah on November 14, 2023. Kevin is survived by his wife, Dana; their children, Kenny, Brianna, Brynley, and Ashley; one grandchild, Brielle; his sisters, Tracy and Jen; his brothers, James, Jason, Richard, and Joseph, and his mother Gayle.
Kevin was born to Kenn and Gayle White in Provo, Utah on September 22, 1970. He graduated from Jordan High School in 1988. At 16, he began his 30+ year career in software engineering. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints from 1989-1991 in Portugal.
Kevin met his wife, Dana, in Orem, Utah at the singles ward. They married on January 18, 1995, and soon after welcomed their first child, Kenny. The family grew to 6 with the births of Brianna, Brynley and Ashley.
Through the years, Kevin enjoyed Star Wars, reading, photography, learning languages, building legos, drawing, woodworking, traveling and spending time with his family. He especially loved visiting Disneyland, making frequent trips with his children and wife; sharing beignets and walking main street together.
Service was very important to Kevin. Every Christmas, he made a point to involve his children and wife in various service projects to different people who he felt could use it that holiday season. Kevin loved Christmas time – the music, the snow, the nativity, the stories – and he shared his love for it with everyone he knew.
Kevin genuinely loved his religion. He led his life with the idea of Christlike love in mind. He believed that every individual was a deeply cared for child of God. On his last day on earth, he gave his wife, Dana, a priesthood blessing.
His friends and family are invited to share happy memories and celebrate Kevin’s life in the way he would want to be remembered – as a loving and caring man who enjoyed serving others.
