My only brother, my sole sibling, my rock and my inspiration - Kevin Scott White - passed away unexpectedly in late October 2012 at the age of 38. Kevin was living at my parents' Estero, FL home while attending Florida Gulf Coast University, where he was finally thriving - earning straight A's and loving life as he shared the story of his hard-won sobriety with others in recovery. Kevin's infectious laughter, hunger to learn new things, artistic passion, and genuine desire to help disabled or older adults was a true gift to those around him.
There is simply no way to express how much Kevin will be missed.
To keep Kevin's positive energy and desire to help others alive, my family has established the Kevin S. White Memorial Art Scholarship Fund to help college students pursue a career in art. More information will be posted on this page as we work out the details of the scholarship.
The family will plan a memorial service sometime in the future. If you are the flower-sending type, we would prefer that you consider donating to the Memorial Art Scholarship instead. If you are the praying type, your prayers are appreciated. If you are the long-distance hugging-type, hug away. In-person hugs are even better. Even if you can't get to mom, dad, or me, be sure to hug someone you love and tell them how they make your world better.
Love and Peace,
Debbie (White) Groebner
