Arthur Dale White

September 22, 1955 — April 15, 2023

It is with great sorrow that the White Family announces the passing of Arthur Dale White, 67, of Edmond, WV, on April 15, 2023.

Art was born on September 22, 1955 up a holler in Cedar Grove, West Virginia to Pauline Castellano and Norman Ray White. A child of seven, he adored his siblings and their lifetime of adventures and shenanigans.

A retired contractor with multiple engineering degrees, Art loved to watch a project come to life. Evidence of his skills and labor can be found throughout the region. Meticulous, methodical, and took no short cuts. He believed that if you were going to do something, you did it right - the first time. His final project was a beautiful heirloom home for his family into which he put his heart and soul.

Art’s greatest joys were his family. He lived and breathed for the love of his life and wife of almost 50 years, Wanda. Together they raised six children, and he worked hard to instill into them the values that he found the most important - honor your word, love fully, be handy, and defend yourself.

Art didn’t know a stranger. He was the first to say hello and the life of the party. You would hear Art long before you saw him - telling a wild story, running the sidelines, or hearing his iconic, infectious laugh. But most of all, Art was a helper. He dedicated his life to being there when he was needed. It didn’t matter the day, the time, or the situation, he was the man that you called.

Art is having a heavenly reunion with his son Arthur Dale White, Jr. “Little Art”, his father Norman Ray White, his siblings Norman Ray II, Elbert, Drema, and William, and many wonderful friends. He is survived by his wife Wanda Lee White, mother Pauline Castellano, step-father Pete Castellano, sister Anita Arnett, brother Leslie White, children Steve Canterbury (Shelly), Amanda White, Aaron White (Ashley), David Austin (Ariel), Shane Plumb, a slew of neighborhood children that he took under his wing, his grandchildren Weston, Brooklynn, and Cade, and very dear friends.
