David White

It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of David White on August 14, 2020 at the age of 55. Born in Oshawa, Ontario in 1964, David was the beloved son of the late Donald (2019) and Bina (2020) White, with whom he had a very special bond and cared for until her death earlier this year. Loving brother to the late Donald White Jr. (2019) of Alberta, Tammy White of Chatham, Cheri (Ken) Smith of Blenheim, and Sandra McAdorey of Bradford. Loved and cherished Uncle to Jessica Francis (Ben), Douglas Francis (Emily), Devon Smith (Lindsay), Victoria Smith (Bryce), David White, Kevin White (Amanda), Trina White, Alyssa McAdorey(Dusty) and Sarah McAdorey. Great Uncle to Addison White and Rylie Smith. Fondly remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family. Reunited in heaven with his best friend, Andy Mullins. Special remembrance by the Hart family – the late Rose Hart (2004) and Eric Hart (1985) and their family Beverly and David Jee , Martin Hart, Paula and John Bushey, Michael and Tina Hart, Colin Hart(Sherry)Late Trudy Hart, Alison and Garnet Shreve, and the late Graham and Jean Hart and many extended family members.
David attended St.Clair College, Fanshawe College and the University of Windsor. He was employed at Chrysler for over 27 years. David had a fondness for animals, especially dogs including his late dog, Chelsea. He was an avid cyclist and also enjoyed taking his mother to bingo and spending time with his family. To know Dave was to love him. His generosity and kind heart knew no bounds especially when it came to helping others. He was accepting of anyone, regardless of their path in life, and would insist on giving the shirt off his back to anyone who needed a helping hand. We could always count on Dave’s incredible wit and sense of humour to bring so much joy and laughter, a quality that will be deeply missed. Special thank you to his Brentwood family for their continuous love and support for David for many years. David took pride in being able to give back and help others, often speaking fondly of his many friendships.

A Celebration of Dave’s Life will be announced at a later date.
