William Edward White

Sergeant William “Bill” White, 45, of Jamestown, passed away Friday, February 12, 2021, at his home. He was born September 22, 1975, the son of Nona (Boose) and the late Lt. Col. Ernest Kennedy White Jr.
Bill was a 1993 graduate of Morgantown High School and a 1998 graduate of Fairmont State College with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. He started the Greensboro Police Academy in September 1999 in the 76th PBIC, where he continued to protect and serve for 21 years. He started out in patrol, became a field training officer, and then in 2007 was promoted to Corporal. In 2011, he was promoted to Sergeant and served in the Professional Standards Division until his retirement in January 2021.
Bill was an amazing husband, father, brother, son, and friend. He was a huge sports fan, an avid reader, and a lover of art. He enjoyed traveling and exploring new places especially Europe. There was nothing he enjoyed more than spending time with his children whether that was reading with them, having a dance party, playing soccer, or drawing pictures. His smile and laughter will be missed tremendously.
He is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Melissa Malone White; his children, Holden and Kennedy White; his sisters, Kaye Parker (John), and Jennifer Fencl (David); sister-in-law, Megan Oliverio (Brock); brother-in-law, Brandon Malone (Jennifer); in-laws, Lynn and Sandy Malone; nieces, Savannah Parker, Elizabeth and Mercedes Zinn, and Briauna and Lillah Malone; and one nephew, John Thomas Parker.
