Two prominent Utah Section PGA Professionals passed away this month. Both Tommy Williams and Gary White were much admired by their fellow professionals and the many people that they positively influenced over many years of service to the game of golf.
Gary White earned the respect of countless Southern Utah golfers as the Director of Golf at the Coral Canyons Golf Club in Washington, Utah for its first ten years of operations. Since that time Gary worked as a lead golf instructor in both Mesquite, NV and at the St. George area. Gary will be remembered by his colleagues and friends as an affable, long ball hitting professional, with a great positive attitude.
White was 64 years of age when he passed away of cancer.
