Officer Bob White was electrocuted while investigating a traffic accident in which a truck had rammed an apparatus resembling an electrical transformer. He apparently had gone to the front of the vehicle and picked up a fender which had been detached and came in contact with the power.

Officer White had served with the San Jose Police Department for over 2 years. He was survived by his parents, two sisters, and a brother.

Thank you for your kind words and I appreciate reading about your stories with some connection to Bob as he was just beginning a new chapter in his life. I truly miss him and have so many good memories from years ago. His German Shepard who was about to start training right before his death lived with us but waited for Bob by the window every night. I am grateful to all of you who take the time for police officers here and honor them as this means alot to the families.
