In 2002, George was named FIRST CITIZEN of Norfolk., George was a sought after speaker and presenter. Honing his skills as a young man in Toastmasters, he had the amazing skill of remembering hundreds of joke punch lines. He would tailor the content of a joke to fit each audience. His audiences ranged from Medical Societies to U.S. Senate sub-committees to local service organizations. In addition, no family affair passed without George gracing the event with his rhyming and humorous prose., He is survived by his devoted wife of 24 years, Elizabeth Franck Middleton, who was his Number One cheerleader and his support partner at E.

Untitled 

John Gilbert White Jr. (Pic) On Wednesday, Dec. 9, 2009, God sent down an angel for John Gilbert White Jr. (Pic). No more suffering, no more pain, his struggle is over. Immediately set free from his infirmity and saved by grace. He was born in Lynchburg, the son of the late John Gilbert White Sr. and Helen Grier White. "Pic" was educated in Lynchburg Public Schools and was a 1969 graduate of Dunbar High School. He accepted Christ at an early age and joined the Wingfield Baptist Church, where he sang on the Gospel Chorus until his illness. When the chorus recorded an album in 1978, he sang, "Sign Me Up for the Christian Jubilee." He retired from General Electric after many years of service. In 1979, he started his own business, "White's Cleaning Service." His work ethic and loyalty to his customers exceeded the standards of that time. He understood customer service and took great pride in his work. "Pic" was passionate about the Washington Redskins and hosted Superbowl parties for the "Skins," where he served his famous chilli. He enjoyed hunting and was an avid fisherman, fishing in both the James River and the deep sea. He had a love for the Peaks of Otter and the Otter Creek Dam area. "Pic" was also an exceptional cook and eager to sample various cuisines. Even during his illness he loved to frequent various restaurants. "Pic" was a devoted son, father and grandfather. Those left to cherish his memory and celebrate his life are his three daughters, Bevley W. Green (Andre) of Saraland, Ala., Farley Dickey, of Lynchburg and Alexis White, of Charlotte, N.C.; two granddaughters, Khadijah Williams and Zharinah Crews of Lynchburg; one devoted grandson, Enzo Jon White, of Charlotte, N.C.; one brother, Larry White (Wanda) of Forest; and one niece, Shaina White, and a nephew Larry White Jr., both of Forest. He is also survived by one aunt, Barbara Davis of Madison Heights, and a lifelong friend Evelyn Dickey-White of Charlotte, N.C., other relatives and friends. "Pic" was known for his loving personality and his way with people. He will be missed by many. The family would like to extend sincere appreciation to the Guggenheimer Nursing Home family for their support and compassion during our loved one's illness. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. today, Dec. 12, 2009, at Wingfield Baptist Church with the Rev. Stacey Younger officiating and the Rev. Carl B. Hutchinson as eulogist. Expression of condolences may be sent to www.Davis-Turner.com. Service of comfort rendered by Davis-Turner Funeral Service.
