Richard Walton White
1948 - 2015
Richard Walton White was born on Armistice Day 1948, to Walton Alexander and Joan Audrey (Grover) White in Santa Barbara, California. He passed away suddenly on May 28, 2015 at his home in New Cuyama doing what he loved, working at his computer researching Mayan culture, history and lore. He is survived by his wife Karen Hilts; daughter, Erika; son-in-law Scott and grandson Brett Peveto of Orange, Texas; step-daughter Jessy Adamson; and brother Charles White and family. He will always be remembered for having a generous nature, being a stickler for detail, swapping puns and anxious to try out different ideas in Agronomy and Soils Science.
