Charles Martin “Marty” White, 75

Charles Martin “Marty” White, 75, of rural Cole Camp, died Friday, March 29, 2013, at his home.  He was born on February 12, 1938, at Girard, Kansas, a son of John C. and Belle (Saxton) White.   He was a member of the United Methodist Church in Leeton, where he was baptized as a young child.  On June 2, 1957, in Chilhowee, he was united in marriage to Wanda J. Shultz, who survives of the home.  In 1958, he tried out for pitcher for The Kansas City Athletics and made the team.   He farmed on a dairy farm for several years with his dad while working civil service at Whiteman Air Force Base at Knob Noster.  In 1975, he and his family moved to Clinton.  While living there, he worked for Farm Bureau and Shelter Insurance.  After moving to Marshall in 1986, he and his wife managed The White House Restaurant and Convenience Store.   After retiring in 2001, he moved to Sedalia.  In 2006, he moved to his home east of Cole Camp, where he enjoyed the freedom of being back on the farm and being able to do the things he loved: like cutting wood, raising baby calves and chickens, and maintaining a large garden.  He always said, “There isn’t anything the blind man (himself) and the cub bear (his wife) couldn’t get done.”  His biggest regret was not being able to see his grandchildren and great-grandchildren clearly.   He was a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and loved to golf and play softball.  In high school, he was an all-state basketball champion.   He is survived by: two daughters, Sherrie Dean of Cole Camp and Debbie Hill and Mike of Jefferson City; two granddaughters, Kristi Wheeler and her husband, Andrew, and Kimmi LeMaster;             four great-grandchildren, Hailey LeMaster, Brenden LeMaster, Anthony Wheeler, and Kaitlyn Wheeler; and his faithful companion, Koko, his dog.   He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Belle White. Memorial services will be held at a later date.  Arrangements are under the direction of the Fox Funeral Home, Cole Camp.
