MAPLEWOOD - Timothy Lawrence White, 62, after faithfully running the race God set before him, went home to be with Jesus Monday, March 5, 2018, at an Ansted nursing facility. He had suffered a stroke on Feb. 20, 2018.
Born Sept. 4, 1955, in Meadow Bridge, he was a son of the late Clayton E. "Buddy" White and Annie L. Fleshman White.
He graduated from Meadow Bridge High School and was a self-employed mechanic.
Mr. White leaves a legacy that cannot be packed in a box. Rather, his legacy must be measured by the impact he had on lives as a witness for Jesus Christ. He was not a member of any one church, but regularly attended services in the communities around Maplewood, Danese and Layland and was known for his faith, his blunt honesty and willingness to help others.
In his younger days Mr. White enjoyed harvesting ginseng and exploring forgotten mountain roads. A loving uncle, he entertained nephews, nieces and younger cousins with tall tales, creative games, long walks and wagon rides. He always had time to work on their vehicles and lend them a helping hand.
Mr. White also was the primary caregiver for his parents in their latter years.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Ewell Keith White; and two nephews, Michael and Joshua White.
Survivors include a brother and sister-in-law, Buddy and Sue Rhodes White of Naoma; a sister and brother-in-law, Karen and Stan Bowen of High Point, North Carolina; and a sister-in-law, Myra White Greene of Charleston. Other survivors include nephews Robert White of Colonial Heights, Virginia; Jeremy White and Elem White, both of Charleston; nieces Katie White of Stickney, Adena Barber of Dunbar and Wanda Holley of Charleston; several great-nephews and great-nieces; one great-great nephew; uncles Forney and Robie Shrewsbury, both of Justice, and Randy Shrewsbury of Jonben, and aunts Dorothy Parrish of Las Vegas and Lorrie Ortiz of Valencia, California.
At Mr. White's request no funeral or viewing will be held. However, a one-day, old-time revival preaching service in his memory will be held at 2 p.m. March 25 at Maplewood Chapel, under the leadership of the Rev. Gary Claypool.
