Teddy White, affectionately known as a kind, loving, strong and caring person was born Nov. 15, 1923. The son of John White and Mathilda Walker (both deceased) in St. Ann, Jamaica went to be with the Lord at 5 a.m. March 6.
He departed from his beloved Jamaica and migrated to England where he lived and worked and raised his children. He then migrated to the United States, where he lived in New York and worked as a chef at the Assembly Rooms in the Rockefeller Center until he retired and moved to Port Charlotte.
He became an active member of the Seventh Day Church of God in Punta Gorda. During his illness he was visited by his minister, family members and friends. He was also happy to share in such spirited visits. The Church extends to his wife, children, grand children, great grand children and family members and friends its heartfelt condolences.
