Mr. Gareth Christopher White of Charlotte North Carolina passed away on November 7, 2017 at the age of 42. Born to Cedriq White and Saundria Joyce Simmons  on July 26 ,1975 in Queens NY. He grew up as the younger brother to Erika Bethea and the older brother to Ian Ford. Gareth graduated from Canarsie High School in Brooklyn, NY. He then attended Livingstone College in Salisbury NC which is when he met his best friend and the love of his life Leatra Monique Huntley.   

Gareth never met a stranger. Our brother was an avid reader and trivia buff.  If there was a random fact to be known Gareth knew it. If you knew him personally, you knew that he was a cool character... very trustworthy and an all-around good spirit. He loved deeply and unconditionally. 


Gareth and Leatra (2015) married on June 24, 2000 the birthday of his mother Saundria J. Simmons (2012).  On July 31, 2008 their loving union brought forth their precious son, Christopher Sean White.  They were blessed again on September 15, 2009 with the birth of their second child, their precious daughter Brianna Elise White. Their two children were his and Leatra's pride and joy.  


Gareth's occupational passion and career was in the information and technology industry where he was doing contract work with Carolinas Healthcare System.  He often talked about his teammates and will be missed by them.  


Gareth's legacy is survived by his children Christopher and Brianna White, his sister Erika Bethea (c. Alexis), brother Ian Ford. Aunt Claudette J. Simmons Elam, Uncle William (Billy) Simmons (c. Jamila and William "Dylan"), Cousins Kenya Batts (h. Michael c. Kamryn & Camille) Shaneis Simmons, Antonio Cruz (2009) Jamel Cruz (c.Sienna) and Grandmother Thelma Simmons (h. Clark James 2017)
