Obituary for Everett Wendell White

White, Everett Wendell, age 79. Everett, son of Everett George and Bernice Iola (Ridnour) White, was born on October 8, 1934 in a farmhouse outside of Shambaugh, Iowa. He was known as Wendell throughout his life. Wendell’s mother Bernice died on April 7, 1937. His father died on 4 January 1972. Wendell was graduated from Villisca High School in 1952. He served in the Iowa National Guard from 1953 to 1964. Wendell married Beverly Joan Smith on January 22, 1961 in Methodist Church in Cumberland, Iowa. After graduating high school Wendell tried to get a job in farming, but the technological advances in equipment and techniques resulted in fewer farming jobs being available. Wendell found in a job in the meat packing area and worked for Cudahy for a few years and later at the Kwik Kafe in Omaha. In 1964 Wendell accepted a job in Colorado at Automatique, (renamed in 1989 to Ambassador Food Services) a vending machine company. He left Automatique in 1973 to start his own business with Beverly, Bronco Vending. Wendell and Beverly were parents to Teri Lynn and Everett George White II (Buddy). Wendell and Beverly enjoyed camping in the Colorado Rockies and bowling. As their children grew older Wendell became involved with coaching junior bowlers. Eventually he became a central figure in the organization of youth bowling in the state of Colorado. He dedicated decades of his life to coaching, nurturing, and promoting junior bowlers through elite leagues, tournaments, and scholarship opportunities. Wendell’s selfless work to promote competitive bowling opportunities for youth was honored in his being inducted into the Colorado Bowling Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Denver Bowling Hall of Fame in 2002. Wendell remained an advocate for youth bowlers until the end of his life. Wendell was preceded in death by his parents, son Buddy, grandson Brandon White, and brother Gene White. He is survived by his wife Beverly of Englewood, Colorado; daughter Teri Lynn, her husband Andrew Millar, and their daughters Terra Skye and Aidan Rain Millar-White of Orcutt, California; granddaughter Tiffany White of Littleton, Colorado; sister Shirley and husband Lee Ankeny of Pea Ridge, Arkansas; brother Darwin and wife Beverly White of Rogers, Arkansas; brother Gary and wife Connie White of Scottsdale, Arizona; sister-in-law Shirley White of Sidney, Nebraska.
