Memorial services are scheduled for 2:00 PM, Monday, July 8, at Faith Baptist Church for William "Casey" Clinton White, II of Artesia, New Mexico.
Mr. White, 70, died July 2, 2019 at his beloved Sun Country Volunteer Fire Department in Artesia.
Pastor Michael Elliot will officiate at the services. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Terpening & Son Mortuary. Burial of the cremated remains will follow at Woodbine Cemetery in Artesia.
He graduated from Allen Military Academy in Bryan, Texas and Texas Christian University. Following his service with the National Guard, he was employed for thirty-three years with Halliburton overseas in Norway, Scotland, Egypt, and Algeria. After retiring from Halliburton, he began his second career in fire fighting, serving as a volunteer fire fighter with the Sun Country Volunteer Fire Department and founding Pecos Valley Wildfire. He served his community with the Fire Department for over twenty-five years, ultimately leading it as its Chief. When you couldn’t find him at the Fire Department, you could find him at the Eddy County Shooting Range or shooting in tournaments around the country.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William Clinton White and Bettye Jo Brainard White.
He is survived by a daughter, Emily Ayliffe White Keatley and son-in-law, Edward Benton Keatley, and two grandsons, Arthur Theodore Keatley and Louis Benton Keatley, all of Kansas City, Missouri.
A loving father and grandfather and dedicated servant of his community, he will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
