Obituary - Bob White
The Friends of the Santa Cruz Public Libraries were saddened to learn of the unexpected passing of Bob White. Bob was currently serving as Chair of the Santa Cruz County Library Advisory Commission and represented Capitola as a member of the Library Joint Powers Authority.
According to the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Bob was an Assistant University Librarian at UCSC for 26 years where he was happily part of the teams that built the award winning Science and Engineering Library and the McHenry Library addition and renovation. Up to his passing, he volunteered his time and expertise for the new branch library in Capitola. He loved libraries and was so grateful to be part of three library building projects.
Bob is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Bonda; his beloved Persian rescue cat, Mason; his brother, Thomas of Black Hills, South Dakota; his extended family of Angus and Susan MacMillan of Felton; and his three amazing Godchildren, Landis, Claire and Ian Ross MacMillan. The family has requested that in lieu of flowers please consider a donation to Second Harvest Food Bank or Housing Matters of Santa Cruz County.
