OBITUARY

Zeddie Allen White Sr.

August 15, 1934May 21, 2020

Z.A. (Pete) White, Sr., loving husband, father, grandfather, and sometimes cantankerous friend and neighbor, passed away at his home on Thursday, May 21, 2020, at the age of 85 after a brief illness.

Pete was preceded in death by his wife of forty-two years, Faye L. White, and leaves behind his son, Z.A. White, Jr., daughter Jacquelyn White Peña (Guadalupe), two grandsons, Alex (Illianna) and Christian, Lou Ellen Adler, and many close friends.

Pete was born and raised in Rossville, Georgia, the son of Z. C. and Jenia (Greene) White. He proudly joined the U.S. Marine Corps at eighteen, and was a Drill Sargent.

Pete loved anything to do with cars and motorcycles, and working with auto parts. He was an expert auto-body mechanic and meticulously painted several of his own cars. Pete worked as an aircraft mechanic at CCAD for many years until his retirement.

NASCAR was a passion for Pete and he never missed a race. He also had a passion for animals, and owned many dogs, and other pets over the years. He was known to pick up strays and take them home to raise to the delight of his children.

Pete was known as Pop to his grandsons and he loved them dearly. He was immensely proud of his grandsons’ achievements and regaled them with his crazy jokes, stories and antics at family gatherings. Very special gratitude for the kind, gentle, and excellent care provided to our Dad and Pop by Del Cielo Hospice and Palliative Care. Dad had the best care by amazing people when he most needed it and the family will always be grateful.

Visitation for family and friends will be at Memory Gardens Funeral Home from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 28, 2020. Funeral services follow at 10:00 a.m.
