William J. White Retired salesman

November 06, 1990

A Mass of Christian burial for William J. White, a retired salesman of diesel fuel and other railroad supplies, will be offered at 10 a.m. today at the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Towson.

Mr. White, who was 74 and lived on Ellenham Road in Ruxton, died Saturday at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center of complications from cancer.

He retired from the Exxon Corp. 10 years ago after 30 years of service, first in New York and for many years in Towson. For 15 years before starting with Exxon, he had worked for the Boston and Maine Railroad, for which he served as head of the diesel engine shop.

A native of Boston, he studied diesel engines at the Wentworth Institute there.

He was fond of travel, first taking his family on trips in this country and Canada, then taking cruises with his wife throughout the world.

He is survived by his wife, the former Barbara Moore; a daughter, Barbara White Loughrey of Pasadena; a son, William J. White Jr. of Haverhill, Mass.; two sisters, Virginia Gray and Regina McCarthy, both of Newton, Mass.; a brother, Theodore White of Cape Cod; and four grandchildren.
