Joshua “Josh” Lee White, 33, of Marion, passed away at 12:38 pm on Friday, July 24, 2020, at his home in Marion. He was born in Marion on August 3, 1986, to Rodney and Phillis (Miller) White. On April 16, 2016, he married Amber Dell, and she survives.

Josh was a 2005 graduate of Oak Hill High School. He worked as a machinist for six years with Indiana Mills and Manufacturing, Inc., of Westfield and previously worked at Structural Steel in Marion. Josh was a board member of Greentown Youth Baseball. He enjoyed being outside, playing video games with his brother and his friends, and watching the Cubs play baseball. He loved spending time with his children and family. More than anything, Josh loved watching his sons play baseball and soccer, as well as watching his daughter in gymnastics and cheer. He will be remembered as a kind-hearted, funny, and soft-spoken man. He will be missed dearly.
