John Hubert White
31 agosto , 1941 – 28 septiembre , 2020
It is with great sadness and regret that we announce the passing of our beloved brother on September 28, 2020 when he unfortunately passed away in his sleep.
Predeceased by his parents and two baby siblings and many uncles and aunts, he is survived by his two loving brothers Lawrence White (June) and Ken White (Sue); three sisters: Jennifer, Eleanor (Dan), and April (Rick). He was uncle, great-uncle and great-great uncle to many nieces and nephews. He loved walking; and took his final walk to Heaven. We would like to thank Community Living staff for their kindness and consideration in caring for our brother John.
No services will be held due to COVID-19; a family gathering will be held at a later date.

Hello to Johns family. I think I met each of you through the years. I met John in 2000 when he came to town. I have great memories of John. Last time I saw John was in September when he came to the office and we had a nice visit outside. He and I would go to the Legion together ( where I used to work) and I introduced him to many of my friends, he played pool with the best!!! We went on some great road trips together with the guys from the workshop. I still have a carving that John made for Richard and I on the wall in our house. John and I would go to Echo and do line dancing with the sunshine club. John came to our house and picked out a pair of Richards cowboy boots for line dancing. John and I would have great conversations and basically solve all the worlds problems. Thanks for the memories......

John was the constant in my life. He always stood up for me and was never judgementel. Always tried to protect me. He had such a good sense of humor. There is a big hole in our lives now, and will be sorely missed. I keep expecting him to come though the door at my sister's place for his morning coffee. He was gentle soul. Love you John.

I loved my big brother, John. Mostly my Bro!
He moved to Port Alberni in summer 2000 from big city Langley. We did a lot of management to help him become a member of our community. Starting with Community Living, then joining our Royal Canadian Legion Br 55 back in the day. Then he thought he'd like to become a member of the Sunshine Club to learn to dance better, and for awhile the PA Men's Dart League.
He really settled in and made this his home; he enjoyed the Alberni Valley, making a lot of friends and eventually other members of his family moved here as well to be closer to us.
Without driving abilities, he walked everywhere in town, latter years he bought a bus pass. He got to chat it up with the bus drivers then. A lot of people knew him, would see him in his travels, and stop to talk a little. He made the Redford McDonald's his regular coffee stop besides our place, his second home. Steam Punk and the Doughnut Shop were favorites too.
He loved it here! His final years were happy years. I miss him now and will miss him every day for the rest of my life because he was my Big Brother!

I always enjoyed John stopping by my desk for a chat, to show me his latest project or to just share a laugh. He took great pride in being a Legion member and being able to support them. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

We lived away . . . From everything! When sister cut her foot on a broken milk bottle (remember them?) John carried her the three miles to town to get the stitches she so obviously needed. Not a big deal . . . For him it was typical of his caring for his siblings. He was our big brother . . . Always! Goodbye my hero, I will miss your wit, humour, laugh, and most of all your unconditional love.
