Brian Joseph White, 49, died May 7, 2019 at his home in Roland.
Brian, the son of Bernie and Linda White, was born In Ames, July 7, 1969. He was serious about his school studies, attended St. Cecilia School, Central Junior High School and Ames High School, and then ventured to University of Iowa to study mechanical engineering. His hobby became his business: Brian White Renovation. Brian was a problem solver and he and his ever-growing-selection of tools worked to improve the function and appearance of many homes in Ames and Story County.

Brian will be dearly missed by his parents, his sister, Betsy (Stephen) Hammond and his brother, Greg (Kerry) White and nephews Joseph Hammond, William Hammond and Jackson White.

A family celebration of Brian's life will take place later in summer and Brian will be buried beside his brother, Jeffrey White, in the Ames Cemetery. On-line condolences and memories of Brian may be left for the family at

I send my love to Brian and the White family. Brian was a dear friend growing up. I remember playing violin with him, sleepovers, giving him vinyl albums for birthdays (GoGos "Beauty and the Beat" and "Duran Duran"). He had a unique philosophy and wit. I still remember him saying "this gum is chewing itself," before spitting it out. It was a perfect description. So much laughter and so many memories connected with Brian at St. Cecilia's School and beyond.
