Dr. Travis Albert White was born on Nov. 3, 1934, to Travis and Evalyn Van Keuren White in Dallas, Texas. Travis married Johnnie Ruth McCann on Dec. 23, 1958, in West Columbia, Texas and was happily married to her for 60 years. He proudly served in the U.S. Army Reserves and was a Lieutenant at the time of his honorable discharge. Dr. White was a radiologist and served in the medical field for over 40 years. He was a member of the Texas Medical Association as well as Trinity Church of Lubbock. After short stints in El Paso and Birmingham, Alabama, Travis and Johnnie Ruth settled in Vernon, Texas in 1967 for many years. Later, they spent several years working across the country while homeschooling their youngest son, Peter. Travis placed God first, followed by family and country. If he was not working, he was doing something for the church. He was a Sunday School teacher and prayer group leader both at home and church. He had a heart for others; when working at hospitals, he would visit with and pray for patients that were not his own. Travis and Johnnie Ruth settled in Lubbock in 1994 and Travis was an active member of Trinity Church and the Trinity Church Prime Timers.
Survivors include his sister, Diana Sue Collins and husband Doug; children, Travis Alan White and wife Denise, Lisa Kay Hawes and Peter John White and wife Chastity; grandchildren, Austin White and wife Lydia; Laura Anne White, Kelly Wayne White, Taylor Anthony White and Syman MacKenzie White; great-grandchildren, Henry White and Dottie White.
He was preceded in death by his spouse, Johnnie Ruth White, parents, Travis Alden and Evalyn May White; and brother Nelson Frank White.
