Russell White Obituary

Russell “Wick” White, 84, a lifelong resident of Coraopolis/Groveton, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, on Sunday, March 17, 2024, from his home, and was surrounded by his loving family. Wick was born in Imperial on March 26, 1939, the last survivor of eight children born to the late John Leroy and Helen (Morflak) White. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his five sisters and two brothers: Geraldine Selinsky, Helen “Sis” Molchan, Sharon White, Joy Ann White, Jean Evelyn White, Frank “Bud” White and Donald White. Wick was a member of the Assembly of God Church, now known as Genesis Church. He was a man who enjoyed being outdoors and spending time fishing, hunting and camping at Little Meadows Campground in Maryland. Most of all, Wick loved his family, and treasured time spent with them at family gatherings, on vacations, or watching the sun set from his deck.  Wick had a stellar work ethic, employed for over 30 years by J & L Steel, Aliquippa Works. While at J & L Steel, Wick, served as a counselor for the Employee Assistance Program, helping those with Drug and Alcohol abuse. Wick is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Shirley (VanDine) White; his devoted children Taunya Donahue (Peter), Marisa “Missy” LaRocco (James), Charzzi White and Donald White (Toni); his cherished grandchildren Eric, Daniel, Cole and Kenzi; also proud of his great grandson Ryker. Visitation Wednesday (March 20th) from 2-4, 6-8 at Copeland’s Coraopolis, 867 Fifth Ave. where service will be held on Thursday at 11 AM. Burial will follow at Coraopolis Cemetery.
