August 10, 2018

Donald C. White, 78, born June 7, 1940, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018, in a peaceful environment at his home.
Donald was born in Arcade, N.Y., graduated from the University of Buffalo, and for the most part of his 44 years as a pharmacist, he was employed at Rite Aid in Boothwyn, Pa.
His brother, Richard White, and sister, Kathy White and her spouse, Lyn Pezzulo, as well as three nieces, Beth, Jordan and Suzie, and one nephew, Adam, survive Donald.
While living in Wilmington, Donald enjoyed going to concerts, swimming at the Y and walking in Rockford Park.
Following his retirement in 2003, Donald moved to Frankford as he loved the beaches and Bethany Beach community. He enjoyed cycling, reading and was a master at jigsaw puzzles. Additionally, when he was still able, he loved to go to the Bahamas and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Although Donald was shy, he made friends with all those he met. He had a wonderful smile, a very dry sense of humor, and loved going out to dinner.
