Clifton Christopher White II was born on December 25, 1981 to Gracie V. Smith-White and the late Clifton White in St. Louis, Mo. Clifton Christopher White, II passed on May 13, 2020 after a fatal motorcycle crash in Gambrills, Maryland. He died on contact with a minivan and was pronounced dead on the scene. Clifton graduated from High Point High School in Adelphia, MD in June of 2000. He participated in wrestling and football during his tenure at High Point HS. He then attempted modeling, but that didn’t go as planned. So, he joined the Woodstock Job Corp in August of 2002 and majored in the Culinary Arts. He graduated in August 2003. He then went to work for Famous Dave’s and other food establishments as a cook. Eventually, Christopher left the food industry and went to work for Prime after getting his CDL License. He traveled for two years around the country. He loved driving his 18 wheelers, but despised the fact that he couldn’t stay and tour the places he drove through. In 2016 he got his motorcycle license and that began his love of bikes. After leaving Prime, he got a job with VER. VER sold their company and Chris didn’t make the cut but VER gave Chris such an excellent reference, that RENTEX hired him to be the manager and gave him 3 weeks off when he started in January 2019. Chris was an excellent worker. Most of the time he was at work. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus in 2020, he was later laid off. Clifton said, “Life is funny. It’s about staying strong and keeping your head up and pushing through those moments that seem to be the hardest, but really these are the moments that define who you are, A WINNER!” Chris celebrated his birthday on December 25, and he loved it! He got Christmas and birthday at the same time. It was a lovely time for us. He was always so thoughtful and kind to his family and was so loved by them during the holidays. He gave us so much during the holidays; cooking, joking, and playing. He brought the excitement and joy into our life because even though it was his day. He would say it was his day we are going to celebrate his Birthday and Christmas. Chris loved to cook and experiment with cooking so he cooked for everybody. Grilling, frying, deep frying, you name it he did it. His second love was riding his motorcycle. He had a crash with his first bike and he wanted to get another. As soon as he got his inheritance from his Dad he went and brought his second bike with promises to his Mom and Auntie that he would be extra careful. He wouldn’t speed and he would be especially careful this time. And we know he was this time. He could not avoid this accident because if he could he would be here today. Chris never broke his promises to his family. He left us to soon but we know he is at peace because he did not suffer. Rest in Peace Clifton Christopher White II you left too soon and you will be missed. Your beautiful smile, that special grin, he used to be a little bully, but he grew into this handsome magnificent young man. He had this knowledge that drew people to him. He lit up a room when he entered it. Always happy, smiling, joking, talking smack, respectful to his elders, people were drawn to him. He had the gift to gab. Old people and young, they all loved Chris because of his mannerism, respect he showed people over the years he grew into this loving, kind, sweetheart of a man. We All Loved CLIFTON CHRISTOPHER WHITE II. We will miss him.

LETTER FROM MOM:

Dear Chris,

A Mother should not have to bury her child. She should be rejoicing in your life. I am going to miss you making my birthday breakfast and cooking dinner for me on Mother’s Day. You were my rock and you will be missed. I don’t know how I’m going to fill the hole in my heart. You were my second. I lost your sister at birth. BUT baby boy, you were with me for 38 years and that’s a lot of love to have left! I know your LOVE is still here with Jamal, Seven and me. You were here for me and I know you loved me and will continue to love me, even in death. Even though you are not here for me to hug and kiss anymore, you will always be in my heart. I will continue to love you forever and a day.

You were born on Christmas day and I wanted a girl. I dressed you in a pink dress, but then the reality hit me and I knew my baby boy was what I wanted. So, Christopher, you continue to watch over us in Heaven. I will always love you. Remember you are my Christmas baby and you will never be forgotten. I remember when we were living on 55th Avenue. It was after 1:00 am and you wanted to go out and I told you no. It was cold, freezing but you were determined to go out. You left and didn’t return until 5:00 in the morning. I was frigid and I had bolted the windows and triple locked the door. Jamal wanted to open the window, but I wouldn’t allow him. I let you stay out there for an hour. When I finally opened the door, you were shivering and knocking on the doors and window trying to get in. That taught you a lesson. You never did that again.

We have had some good and some bad times, but love was always, always there. I will love you forever and a day. You were a wonderful son and my heart is broken because you are not here anymore. You will always be my baby.

Love Mommie!
