Bradley White - 2007
Here's a picture of Brad that I took about 3 or 4 years ago...during happier times. I'm sure it's how he would like to be remembered. Russ Marion-2010

Obituary - William B. "Brad" White, 62, of Morro Bay passed away Monday, Nov. 8, 2010. Brad was born in Portland, Ore., and grew up on the Monterey Peninsula. After attending Monterey Peninsula College, he came to Cal Poly, where he joined A.T.O. Fraternity and made many friends.

Brad worked for San Luis Paints for 20 years - he opened the store in Morro Bay and later worked at the main store in San Luis. After he retired, Brad became active in the Estero Bay United Methodist Church and served on various committees.

He will be deeply missed by everyone that has known him. Brad is survived by his wife, Penny; daughter, Kimberly (Shane); and his family. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, at the Estero Bay United Methodist Church, 3000 Hemlock in Morro Bay. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to: EBUMC, Brad White Memorial Fund, P.O. Box 234, Morro Bay, CA 93443.

I had some unfortunate news in a phone call from Tom (a mutual friend from Monterey HS) today. Our long time friend, Brad White, had a stroke on Sat., and passed away today.
His wife, Penny, called Tom and asked him to let everyone know. Kimberley, his daughter, is around 19.
We had many wonderful times, and Brad was a great guy. He will be missed.

Brad and Paul Edwards and Doug Bird and I used to hang out a fair bit, especially after graduation during our first year at MPC, '66-67.. He used to drive an ancient Dodge Meadowbrook and we'd cruised around on weekends looking for something to do (or girls to meet). Rarely successful at either.
He was a great guy and I am really sorry to hear that he's died so young.

Brad and I bonded as close friends our sophomore year at P.G. High (his first year back in the states after spending time in Germany) and have remained close ever since. We talked on the phone nearly every day in the last couple of years right up until Saturday the 23rd of last month. Penny called me on Sunday the 24th and told me he had had a stroke. I was in Newton,KS at the time and only arrived back in California last Friday. Penny called me this morning and gave me the sad news. He had not been that well for sometime, battling severe pain in his legs and most recently bladder cancer. The last two weeks he had been virtually comatose since the stroke, paralyzed on his right side and unable to speak.
We had a lot of good times together over the years. We did a lot of backpacking out in Los Padres forest back in high school and when my job would allow I'd hang with him in San Luis and Moro Bay where he would cook up the best B.B.Q. you ever tasted. About 30 years ago he got into making his own home brewed beer and let me tell you it was better than anything you could buy in the store.
His daughter Kimmee was the light of his life. He was so proud of her. She has the same bright red hair that Brad had before it started turning gray...I miss him.

It seems that I lost track of many of my friends from PGHS after enlisting in the Navy and then ending up in Huntington Beach after my tour was up - but I still have very fond memories of the time that I spent with them when in high school. I still recall a group of us getting together at a place that Paul Edwards had (rental?) for hanging out, working on some real beater surf boards and the occasional party. If I recall correctly Paul had an 11 foot big wave gun, I had a 9 1/2 foot Weber and I can't recall who else had what. Pat Godfrey was kind enough to try to show us how to surf (at Asilomar no less). We were really bad and no one except Pat had anything that resembled a wet suit in those days. Brad came along with us one day and tried out Paul's board and had about as much luck as any of us did (zero). Of course trying to get up on an 11 foot board in a 2 foot break was almost impossible anyway. If I remember it right, we went to Paul's after that for a small party and listening to some great sounds of the 60's on his huge stereo HiFi (??). WOW, some memories are flooding back.
Although I haven't been in communication with Brad since those days, I will miss him deeply and will always hold his memory close. My prayers go out to his family and friends.
