Robert (Bob) P. White Jr., 78, of Mooresville, Indiana, passed away March 10, 2021 in the comfort of his home. He graduated from Pike High School in 1960 where he enjoyed playing baseball and basketball. After high school, Bob followed in the foot-steps of his father and uncles and went into trade school for ironworking. For 19 years, Bob “road the steel” and helped construct several prominent buildings in downtown Indianapolis including Market Square Arena and Indiana National Bank.

Bob had a passion for both playing and watching sports of all kinds. He bowled on a traveling league and he coached several of his daughters’ softball teams. Golf was certainly his favorite activity and he enjoyed getting out on the courses around town any time he could. Bob had a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh. He provided a fun-loving home for his families and his many pets. His family has many happy memories to cherish.
