James W. White, Jr., passed away, Thursday, March 29, 2018 at Hospice & Community Care, Mount Joy. He fought brain cancer, glioblastoma, for 13 months, enduring two brain surgeries: one at LGH and a second at University of Pennsylvania. He was 55 years old.
Jim Jr. was born in Carlisle, PA, the son of James Sr. and Gail (Woolbert) White. A 1981 graduate of Penn Manor High School and a 1985 business graduate of Shippensburg University, he was employed by Smoker Company, Leola, as a wealth manager.
He and his former wife, Christine Favinger Kinderwater, have two sons: Kyle - who works in research at the Univ. of PA and Connor - a second semester senior at Susquehanna University, Selinsgrove, PA. Jim also has a devoted, younger brother - Eric White, Millersville, PA.
Jim loved being with people and was active playing basketball, poker, and golf. For years he golfed with various groups and enjoyed trying various, challenging courses. As his illness progressed, his friends remained extremely loyal.
Jim's wishes were that there be no viewing. He will be cremated and interred at the convenience of the family. If you care to send a memorial, we are suggesting Hospice & Community Care, (www.hospiceandcommunitycare.org), which provided excellent, compassionate care and made his final days comfortable.
