Scott Joseph White
July 22, 1981 - December 26, 2021
Our hearts are broken. On December 26, 2021 our beloved Scott passed away peacefully at home after a short, but fierce battle with renal cell carcinoma. He had never given up hope and fought with incredible courage.
His is survived by his ever-faithful mother Pauline White, loving brother Thomas White, his devoted sister Rebecca Anderson and brother-in-law Steven Anderson, his adored niece Amelia Anderson and his father Jerome Epstein. He was a very proud Godfather to his close cousin Eric Bickel's son, Landon. He is also survived by a large family circle who loved him deeply and absolutely, including his 19 aunts and uncles, 26 first cousins and 29 second cousins.

Scott's passions were hiking in the backcountry of Yosemite and photography – especially of the many national parks he visited. He loved to photograph the incredible night sky of national parks as well (no matter how cold it was). He was fortunate to have been able to visit and photograph Ireland – from Dublin, to the Giant's Causeway in the North, to beautiful Dingle Bay and Killarney.

Scott was an amazing artist – metal sculpting, acrylic tables and paintings. Scott's other passion was his job. He was a proud team member of the Martin Sign Company in San Francisco. He felt part of the Martin Sign Company family. He was able to combine his natural artistic ability with his work, which is a rare combination. He was always willing to lend a hand to help anyone in need both at work and at home.

We will miss him every day and will never be the same without his shy, dry wit and his deep love of his family. One of his favorite phrases was, "See ya". Yes, Scott we will "See ya".

Donations can be made to the Yosemite Conservancy or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

I have so many great memories of Scott. Skateboarding, snowboarding, trips to Tahoe and Hawaii. We used to explore around Montara mountain and SF all the time. He was a great friend and although I haven't seen or talked to him in years I will always remember the good times we had. His family was always so nice to me and if there's anything I can do please let me know. My thoughts are with you. Sheldon Gustafson [email protected]

Scott was a great friend growing up and we had a lot of fun enjoying the outdoors together. I'll always have great memories about racing bikes down Park Pacifica and exploring the hills of Pacifica. I love getting out in the backcountry and I'm glad to hear that Scott did too. I'd like to think that all of the time we spent with with each during the Good Shepherd days helped form that love. I send my deepest condolences to all of Scott's family.

Scott was a co-worker and friend to everyone here at MSC. His passing brings great sadness to us all. Scott was the strong silent type in the Gary Cooper mold. He was supremely capable and modest to a fault. He was everything you could ask for in a work mate and we are all devestated by how quickly he was taken away. May Scott's memory be a blessing to all who knew him.

Scott - you mattered and are missed by so many. Your niece and godson will know you and live your legacy. You will never be forgotten. Enjoy your Heavenly home until you are reunited with your mother once again.
