Justin White

Justin Hunter White was a loving father, husband, son, brother, and best friend to many. He left us unexpectedly February 27, 2022, at the age of 36.

Justin was born the second of three children to Hunter and Kelley White on March 19, 1985, growing up roaming through the hills of Morenci and Round Valley, Arizona. He proudly enlisted in the United States Army in 2003 and served overseas, but Sergeant White departed from the service to his country in 2006 to chase his dreams at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, where he became a Mining Engineer. While there, he met the love of his life, Taylor Duggar, marrying in 2012 then becoming the father of two amazing boys, Colton, age 5, and Jameson, age 3.

Justin lived his life to the fullest, pursuing a rising career with Freeport-McMoRan where he worked as an engineer and leader in both Chile and Arizona. His love for travel took him about the world while always enjoying the company of close friends and family. Justin never parted ways without telling his wife and family how much he loved them as he gave them a warm embracing bear hug. Above all, Justin loved being a father to his two young sons, sweetly saying their prayers and singing to them before bedtime each night.

Justin’s love for living will not come to an end with his passing since his loved ones will continue to honor his heartfelt legacy left behind of love and friendship while living life to the fullest, but most importantly remembering to tell each other “I love you.”

Justin is survived by: his wife, Taylor; sons, Colton, and Jameson; parents, Kelley and Hunter White; parents-in-law, Ty and Marilyn Duggar; brother, Sean and wife Jaimie White; sister, Ashleigh and husband Joey Rodriguez; sisters-in-law, Morgan Duggar and Kelsey Duggar; grandparents, Jim and Janelle Decker, Moose and Frankie White, Patsy White; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, other family members, and many, many friends.

Justin was easy to talk to, he never jumped to negative assumptions, and he lived the quiet life he had earned. I never heard a disparaging word about Justin, and I sincerely believe he never deserved one. Justin was a good man and positive influence in my life. He took a genuine interest in the dumb nerd stuff I was doing when we were both in Morenci; that's my fondest memory of him. The world's gonna miss you, bro. Our prayers are with your family.
