John leaves to mourn his first love Brenda White, his loving children, Ramona, Roxanne, Trevor, loving life partner Laura Smith (deceased) Nicki, Michelle, Amanda (who was by his bed side), John Jr and Jeazel, grandchildren; Christopher (who was by his bed side), Samantha, Heather, David, Tanika, Faith, Fox, Cooper, Martin, Liam, Nicoletta, and Carmela; Brothers, Hayward (Shirley), Gordon (Gertie), Jim (Jean); Sisters, Madonna White, Ruth (Gord) Reid; Sister in-law, Sandra White; Loving in-laws; Micheal, Jimmy (who was by his bed side) and Gina, as well as his extended family members at large near and far.
John William White is predeceased by his parents, Fanny Jane White (Welsh) and Frederick White, loving life partner Laura Smith of 33 years (may they be holding each other’s hand), Brothers; Eddie (John’s twin brother), Frederick (Dick) White, Jerry White, Reginald White, and Enos (Bimbo) White, Sisters; Jean Williams, and Annie Snow and all those who were special to him.
He was and forever will be remembered as, a loving son, a good neighbour, a great partner, a devoted father, a gentle kind giving soul, a person who would teach you how to survive, ie; mechanics/body repairs/painting, a soul that loved his family, ALL of them the same way, a person who opened his heart. He welcomed you into his home with ease and kindness, his hugs and jokes to make you laugh that would wash the sorrow/worries away. He was a pure blessing into this world and created a beautiful story in his life span.
John’s wish with cremation has taken place. In keeping with the COVID-19 regulations there will be no public funeral at this time. When we are able we will have a celebration of life. All will be notified by the family to be invited.
