Jerry White

Jerry Rogers White, 77, of Shelbina, passed away at the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans Hospital in Columbia, MO on July 25, 2017. Jerry was born June 14, 1940 in Clark, Missouri to Charles William White and Lorene Barron White.

He was fondly known as “the gas man” by his many customers. He thoroughly enjoyed his work delivering propane and the many friends he made.
