It is with great sadness, the City of Overton announces the loss of Jim White, Overton Volunteer Fire Chief and long time member of the OVFD. Jim passed away Friday 2/7/20 afternoon and Trinity Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler, TX.
Jim lived his entire life with a servant’s heart, first as a teacher who retired from West Rusk and many dedicated years of service not only to the Overton Volunteer Fire Department and Fire & Rescue Squad, but also to the State Firefighters Association and Rusk County ESD. A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered.
Please lift his family in your prayers as his death has been a total shock to us all.
Funeral arrangements will be handled by McWhorter Funeral Home in Gilmer, TX. Arrangements will be forwarded to each of you by email once they have been finalized.
