WHITE, David Norman White - Obituary | Print |

WHITE, David Norman -

(March 9, 1953 to January 1, 2014)

Of Ajax, formerly of Dunbarton and Whitby.

Father of Timothy White of Ajax, predeceased by his wife Teresa Swailes (1990), brother of Maryann of Wolverhampton, England and Tim (Anne) of Ajax, uncle to nephews Daniel and Adam Burkitt of UK and to nephew David and nieces Suzanne and Lucy of Ajax.

Born in Dunbarton (Pickering) to Norman and Laurel (nee Aggleton), he enjoyed his youth there running the fields and woods, because you could then and later, after his parents returned to England, he stayed and enjoyed playing the bass, his partnership with Gord Balik installing kitchens, his motorcycle, which Teresa said was a bad idea and engaging in general mayhem and mischief. Dear friend of Tracy and Madison, Burt of Whitby and of too many longtime friends to possibly list them all.

Dave died at Rouge Valley Ajax Hospital after a two-month stay and a few determined breakaways, one during our blackout ice storm. But it was a sunny day and he would have rather been outside, at home, up north at Combermere, Greenwood or at the pub.

Dave was a great storyteller and had a razor-sharp mind to the end. He was a great fan of history, black and white movies and could put a spin on even the driest details to make the history of our times memorable.

Always polite and ready for conversation, you could make him laugh, but if you couldn't speak a full sentence and make good use of the English language, you might have felt his annoyance. He had no patience for that and will be surely missed.

Cremation has taken place.  Friends are welcome on Saturday, January 11th anytime from noon until you choose to leave at The Red Lion Pub, the old Royal Scot, formerly owned by the late Brian (Barney) Burnett. 

See you there!
