Welcome to Dave’s memorial page

David Wesley White was born on May 30, 1959, to Ann and Wes White.  He was the second born child after Richard Dean, and then, after him, his two sisters Leann Elizabeth White Morris and Lori Sue White Dodgen.  From day one, Dave was known as a fun-loving guy who was quick to laugh at any chance he got.  Along with loving to laugh and socialize, Dave also enjoyed listening and making music.  Music was a very big part of his life, and he played the saxaphone for many years.  He ended up passing down his legacy and love for the saxaphone to one of his four neices.  David Wesley White added so much life, color, and sparkle to our family, and we miss him very much.  Dave loved his family, especially his neices and nephews who he spoiled rotten!  And, they loved their Uncle Dave!!!
Dave’s last day on earth was March 8, 2011.  He was a high-on-life, social butterfly while he was with us, and now we can think fondly back on our favorite times with him.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”

 

WE MISS YOU, UNCLE DAVE . . . . but we love you even MORE!!

      We had so so so many good times with him!!! I have always loved the holiday season, and I think a big reason was because we always got to see Uncle Dave and Anthony. We got to have a ton of fun experiences and special times with him, but it’s never enough, is it?? No one can ever erase those memories we have with him, and, to me, that’s such a comforting feeling because I know I got to love him! The people who never got to know him missed someone very special 🙂

        you are so right Lexi, it is hard sometimes to get through these days but having you guys and the babies make it so much easier. Uncle Dave would have loved to see what great Moms you all have turned out to be and he would love those babies…

    One year ago today I lost my brother. I Love you Dave now and forever! I still have “Wishes” and “Regrets” when it comes to you and our relationship but mostly I just chose to remember the good times of growing up together and you being my “BUD”. Rest in Peace sweet brother of mine….rest in peace.

    My memory of Dave is he always greeted you with a smile and a hug..He would leave you with a smile and a hug..
    One Christmas when Tarrant was going to have the parade, we made a green balloon wreath and put it on the side of our truck.. I have pictures of it with many of the WHITE children and some of our g’children in the back..Dave was there enjoying it as much as the kids…if my memory serves me right, Nana was in the pictures..I am going to make a guess that the year was about 1989 or 90.. i will look for the pictures…love all of you 🙂

    We remember a sweet little brown eyed boy, who admired his older brother and was so tender and loving to his little sisters. David had a smile that would brighten up any space., he was generous to a fault, he would give away his last dollar to help a family member or a friend. David loved people and honestly thought everyone loved him ,and most did. There is a big hole in our hearts but know you would not want us to grieve or focus on the loss but remember the good times, the family times. We know you are with your grandparents and you are making heaven an even brighter place with your smile. We ;love you,,our precious boy.

    The last real memory I have is our last sleepover. I can’t remember exactly, but we were probably seniors in high school or freshmen in college. We were 18 going on thirty…that’s all I know and Uncle Dave and Anthony never told us any different:) They let us try every kind of their dessert liqueurs, and we would talk about anything under the sun. We were three goofy/awkward girls, but when we were with them we felt like high class ladies. I think it was because they treated us like we were and always rolled out the red carpet when we came over:) Needless to say, we LOVED it:)

    • Lexi says:

      Yes, I remember that vividly, too. Isn’t it cool how we have such fun memories of Dave AND Anthony. That’s just how I wanna remember everything 🙂 Oh, and you can’t forget the rave party with the flags!!

    The sleepovers were so fun…some memories I will never forget. I liked all the art that they used to collect (the weird triangle prism-y thing and then that bust of the woman at the end of the hall – we thought that was so risque!). Ha ha!! Another one for me would be New York. The first memory that popped in my mind was the limo that they surprised us with for traveling from the airport to the hotel (I’m pretty sure that was my first limo ride – or just my favorite)….I thought we were the coolest tourists ever! And then, secondly, no one may remember this one, but I remember walking like 539ish city blocks to go shopping. I could remember that because it was bitter cold and I am probably the laziest person, but it was still so much fun 🙂
