His Beautiful Sunrise and Sunset: 

On Wednesday morning, October 10, 2018, at Agape Hospice House of Columbia, SC, God saw fit to dispatch his angels during the transitioning of Mr. David White, Sr. as he entered into a peaceful sleep around 5 A.M.  It is our belief that David was greeted by our fore parents and his father, the late, George “Burke” White and his mother, the late Nickels “Nikki” Bell White; paternal and maternal grandparents awaiting his arrival safely home. 

 “David” was the fifth child born to George “Burke” and Nickels Nikki” Bell White in Ridgeway, SC. 

Education/Church Affiliation: 

As a student, he attended and graduated from the Segregated Kershaw County Public School System.  David’s religious experience and membership began at Rock Hill Baptist Church during his youth.  He was employed with E. I. DuPont De Moors in Camden, SC, SC Department of Mental Health, Columbia, SC and DuPont May Plant - In Vista in Camden, SC with 30 plus years of service. 


He loved outdoors, fishing, hunting, baseball, and spending time with his family.

A life that was once so lively and later became still through time and illness, David has transcended from his earthly life to be with our Savior and other loved ones that have gone on before.  His soul is set free, his spirit soars and only memories of him are left with those of us who will always remember and cherish him;  his wife, Beatrice White of Ridgeway, SC; three sons, David (Catherine) White Jr. of Ridgeway, SC, Dwayne White of Elgin, SC, Ronald (Shirley) Bush of Ridgeway, SC; four daughters, Rutha L.
