I met Whitey January, 1997 when I began working with him in FedEx dispatch. We bonded quickly and in him, I found the most trusted and loving friendship that I could have ever hoped for. We shared so many wonderful memories in and out of the office. From our funny private “backwards”writing on the dispatch work station, to golf and beach trips. He was a true friend in every sense of the word, from inside jokes to a shoulder to cry on and the best hugs. I could always count on him. When Whitey loved you-you KNEW you were loved. And God knows I loved him. He was the kind of friend I want to be. There will never be another Whitey. RIP sweet friend. ❤️

My condolences to the family of David White. I am very sorry for your loss. Even though I had not seen David in many years I was sad to hear about his death. David was a funny and kind man who was a pleasure to be around. We met at college and along with several other people had many adventures together which included road trips to visit other friends, music concerts or trips to the Cape. When he left to go to Charlotte I could not believe it and thought he would return. That did not happen though. I did visit him once when he worked at U-Haul and then lost contact.
I have been living with memories of David for years and will continue to do so. You were a good friend and will be missed.

I worked with David for some years before he retired. David was great to work with, a really fun guy. David was genuine. He truly loved his family and his close friends. David retired about 5 years ago,but I think of him often. My deepest condolences to David's sons and family. I know David will be sorely missed.
You now have an Angel who is always watching over you until you meet again.
Sincerely, Joy Manning, FedEx Express

I had the honor of working with David for a number of years at FedEx. He was a great dispatcher and was well respected by his peers and co-workers. I will always remember his booming voice and jovial attitude. My sincerest sympathies to his family and friends.

So many good memories to share about the gentle giant, my friend David White. We met in 1975 at Eastern Nazarene College. Sports, music, motorcycles and love for the RedSox and Celtics molded our friendship.
Trips to Fenway and the Garden and the Cape were monumental. So many great times with great friends at the Beachcomer and Wolly beach.
You trusted me enough to leave your home state of Massachusetts and follow Lois and I to North Carolina to start a new chapter in your life.
We loved having you in our life as you were a constant reminder of great times at college. We worked at Fedex for over 25 years together. We won golf tournaments together, more road trips and had so much fun. We became Dads and grandfathers together. Our Sox won a few World Series. We got old together but never lost touch for to long. I’ll miss you Whitey. You were my brother. Hit Em straight in heaven !
