Yucaipa has lost a man who has contributed so much to our community over many many years, Mr. Tom White. You may remember seeing him in our News Mirror paper, around Christmas time parked in a parking lot in his Stealers Motor Home collecting toys, saying

Come on now let's fill this motor home up, with gifts for needy families with children. He would then take all donated toys down to one of our local fire stations to be given out. He also helped/ worked at Live Oak Canyon Christmas Tree Farm/ the Pumpkin Patch, hand making the haunted houses on display, and being the grim reaper out in the pumpkin patch. He also made off the ground garden boxes for some of our schools, teaching our kids how to grow a gardens. He and his twin brother Gerry, had a haunted house they built for many years, about 35 years ago.

One of Tom's last wishes from this world was, please fill the Stealers mobile with gifts for the kids. We are going to grant Tom’s wish.

Tom will be missed by so many people for all of his kindness towards everyone.
