Obituary

Jerry Allen White, 78, of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Tuesday, November 22, 2022. Survived by his loving wife of 36 years, Jaunita Lee White(Price), son Jerry Anthony White, and his sister, Annette(Virgil) Riffle(White). Born originally in Clarksburg, WV.

Jerry enlisted in the United States Navy in 1962. Starting in 1971, SGT Jerry White served in the United States Marine Corps as a Military Policeman. He held many honorable positions, but most importantly, numerous presidential details. He also served time overseas in Okinawa, Japan.

“Big Jerry” worked and retired from the Northern Virginia Electric Company(NOVEC) as the head Administrator throughout all of Northern Virginia facilities. Creating unforgettable memories, for not only himself, but countless others throughout his life. Jerry was the life of every single party whether he was invited, or not. He loved his country, his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, dogs, and beer. Enjoying the final years of his life retired in Myrtle Beach, he spent many wonderful days with his dogs Angel, Lexi, Bud, Sue, & Leah. Constantly cracking jokes to the neighbors, causing havoc wherever he went, and irking Jaunita’s nerve, Big Jerry lived every day to the fullest. He belonged to, and attended Grand Strand Baptist Church every Sunday, or remotely when needed. A die-hard fighter for his country, a wonderful man, a legend.
