Mr. White was born in Hunt­ing­don, Que­bec, Canada on March 30, 1924 on a dairy farm and passed away Tues­day, Novem­ber 6, 2018 at Parkridge Hos­pi­tal.

In his forty­four year busi­ness ca­reer, he served in hu­man re­sources and man­u­fac­tur­ing man­age­ment. Al­though he re­ceived a Pres­i­den­tial Com­men­da­tion from Pres­i­dent Ger­ald R. Ford for his work with the Na­tional Al­liance of Busi­ness­men, his great­est achieve­ment was the countless num­ber of younger pro­tégés he men­tored. Many of whom be­came like fam­ily.

White (Jenifer) of Cayce and five grand­chil­dren, Cameron, Lo­gan, Katie, Lyza, and Kelsy. He was proud of his fam­ily and, par­tic­u­larly, of his grand­chil­dren.
