I just learned of Mr. White's death. Growing up as a friend of his son, Hugh, Mr. White was one of my favorite "friend's fathers". I have fond memories of camping out in their backyard on Portland Avenue and having Mr. White help me identify the Big Dipper.
He was a kind and gentle man who enriched the lives of all who knew him.

I met Ed, my second cousin twice removed, after reading an article about him and his genealogical research. He and Harriet invited me into their home at Plantation Estates - a mere 3 miles from my home! - to swap family history. Our common ancestor is Joseph Franklin White. Ed showed me a transcription of a letter written by my 2nd great grandmother, Elizabeth White, to Ed's father. This letter contained a great deal of family history and has been sourced by many over the years. Ed kindly let me transcribe his transcription and allowed me to submit it to the York County Genealogical & Historical Society's Quarterly, which published it shortly thereafter. I am sorry to hear of Ed's passing and will always remember him as a kind and learned man. My condolences to Harriet and the rest of his family.

Everyone that knew our UnK"E"-- (what we all called him)--knew that you could not meet a nicer guy! The True Southern Gentleman was always extremely kind. One time we were driving in the winter time and he pointed out the beautiful image the barren trees made pointing to the sky! He could see the beauty in all things from the way bricks were laid in Baltimore's Oriole Park at Camden Yard to the "Snowflake" design of a Hospital Wing. A great Southern Gentleman who really loved his family and helping others. We will miss him here but know that he is happy in Heaven.

I did not have the pleasure of knowing Ed personally, but I know his son Hugh, so I feel like I knew Ed. Hugh has not only shared many wonderful stories of his precious father, but he, too, is a Southern gentleman who is continuing the legacy of his dad. I know the Lord has drawn especially close to this much loved family of believers during this time. May you be comforted and find peace in the mystery of His Presence.

Uncle Ed will be greatly missed. He was an amazing man and a Great Uncle! I enjoyed our walks and talks. Everytime I look at a tree or the architecture of a house I will remember his teachings and smile.
