Walter Lee White was born to the late Charlie and Annie Lee White on Jul 13, 1941 in Farth, Arkansas.
Walter confessed Christ at an early age and was baptized and became a member of First Baptist Church. Walter became the first in his family to earn a high school diploma. He was educated in the Eudora Public School system and graduated from Eudora High School in 1961. He worked at the Ball Fencing Company until he retired.
Walter was the youngest of 12 children born to Charlie and Annie. His brothers and sisters preceded him in death. There were four brothers: Johnny “Lightening,” White, Charlie “C.W.” White, Napoleon White, Lawrence Corneal “L.C.” White, and six sisters: Annie Mae Miles, Josephine “Josie” Clay, Pearline Carr, Mary Ella White, Sue Ella White, and Pecola Boston. Three other siblings also preceded him in death: Niecy, Mabel.
Walter became ill and passed peacefully on April 26, 2017 to be with his parents, brothers and sisters who went before him.
Walter leaves to cherish his memory — a sister Lizzie Burks and his nephew and best friend Roosevelt, as well as a host of other nephews, nieces and friends.
