James Edward White, Jr.

June 6, 1947 ~ April 10, 2018 (age 70)

"How can I say thanks, for the things You have done for me?
Things so undeserved, yet You gave to prove Your love for me;
the voices of a million angels, could not express my gratitude.
All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe it all to Thee.

To God be the glory, to God be the glory, to God be the glory
for the things He has done."

James Edward White, Jr., age 70 of 2715 Main Street Ext, Elizabeth City, NC, gently stepped away from his musical keyboard and turned away from the microphone as he took flight and decided to follow Jesus with no turning back, peacefully on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the Elizabeth City Health and Rehabilitation. 

James' life will be celebrated with love and remembrance  on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at the St. Stephen Missionary Baptist Church, Elizabeth City, NC.  Interment will follow at the New Hope Baptist Church Cemetery, Gates, NC.

​James leaves to cherish his loving memories: one daughter, Monica L. Florence; three sons, James A. White, Marlon T. White and Joseph L. Jefferson; seven grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; loving and devoted friend, Annie Mercer; and a host of other relatives and friends. 

Please feel free to light a candle ​in loving memory and sign the guestbook​ with an expression of love to the family.
