Dr Allan Neil White (June 29, 1920-August 8, 2019)

During World War II and in Vietnam, from Taihape to Tauranga, Dr Allan White served others.

The doctor, pilot, serviceman and family man who many in the Bay of Plenty may know from the Tauranga Aero Club or the Mount Medical Centre, died last week in Tauranga.

Dr White's son, London-based Kiwi actor Peter Land, told the Bay of Plenty Times it was a shock for the whole family to have their father die at the age of 99.
