Ronald White, age 70, passed away November 14, 2022 at his daughter's home in Lithia, FL, under the gentle care of Lifepath Hospice. Ron was born May 18, 1952 in Los Angeles, CA to Rose and James White. He graduated from John C. Fremont High School and attended California State University at Northridge. During his working years, Ron worked as a scenic artist at NBC Studios in Burbank, CA. He relocated to Lithonia, GA in 1994.

Ron always had a smile to share. He was amicable, kind, and easily amused. He loved the beach, was an avid tennis player and was a fan of basketball, especially the LA Lakers. He also enjoyed Wednesday Wind Downs in the "Southwest Corner" of Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park. His family and friends will miss him dearly and remember him fondly.
