James White Obituary
James Wilson White, of Brookline, passed away on Tuesday, April 29th at the age of 82. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Margareta White of Brookline, daughter Monica Soonie White of Brookline, and son Erik White and his wife Nadge of Roxbury. Besides his wife and children, he is survived by his older brother William White and wife Lynn, of Sewickley, PA., sister Alice Robin and husband Mel of Upper Black Eddy, PA and sister Sarah Sellers of Alameda, CA. as well as many loving nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends. He served the town of Brookline for 28 years in the planning department before retiring and moving on and reigniting his love for sailing. Ever the explorer, his sailing adventures took him to the Caribbean on multiple occasions and culminated in his crossing of the Atlantic Ocean. His passion and love for his family also led him to take up genealogy where he traced generations that preceded the Mayflower. He touched many lives and will be sorely missed. A celebration of his life will be held at the Squantum Yacht Club-646 Quincy Shore Drive, Wollaston, MA 02170, on Sunday, June 1st, 12-4 pm.
