Vince White, a multiline representative and owner of Seattle-area firm Vince White Sales, passed away on July 23. He was 71.

White was raised in an Air Force family, growing up in Panama and later Sacramento, California. After graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Navy where he completed his service in Southern California. Upon leaving the Navy, White made the promotional products industry his entire career and was extremely passionate about the profession.

Outside of the office, White loved to spend time playing golf, believing that there wasn’t a day bad enough that time on the course couldn’t fix. Those who knew him remember his quick wit, humor and the nicknames that he would give everyone.

White is survived by his wife Violet; three sisters—Judy, Victoria and Becky—and their spouses; his nephews Doug and Christopher; nieces Jennifer, Tiffany and Sarah; and three great-nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, father and sister Betty.
