Edmond D. White, 72, a native of Huntsville, Alabama, peacefully departed on February 5, 2024, in Little Rock, Arkansas. Born on March 5, 1951, to the late Rev. Edmond White Sr. and Elizabeth Nance White, Edmond grew up with his loving big sister, Julianne.
Edmond earned his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Alabama A&M and later became a dynamic part of the "Soul Aggregation," showcasing his musical talent playing the bongos and congas. The ensemble performed in various venues, opening for numerous acclaimed artists.
Moving to Little Rock, Arkansas, Edmond dedicated many years to Southwestern Bell, where he served as a Manager in EADAS. His entrepreneurial spirit led him to ventures with Amway and others before finding success as a significant contributor to Silk E Way and EZ Kleen. A founding member of the Little Rock C.A., he proudly celebrated 32 years of sobriety and was also a founding member of Black Community Developers.
Edmond's influence extended beyond the professional, but also in his personal life. He was a devoted and loving father, who enjoyed spending time with his children in their extracurricular activities. Ed not only coached Kasii’s football team at Carver YMCA; but he also attended all of Nick’s basketball games. He was known for treating Nick’s friends and teammates as if they were his own. He also enjoyed providing the music for Stacii’s pep rallies at Parkview High School. Ed shared the same amount of love and excitement for his grandchildren by spending time, ensuring that all of their needs were met.
Preceded in death by his parents, brothers Judge Frank White, Kenneth Rogers, Colonel Ralph White, and sister Julianne Lacy, Edmond is survived by his loving children, Nicholas White, Kasii Thomas, Stacii O’Donald, and Thaddius Drapper; grandchildren Keenan, Ethan, Greyson, Chandler, Nikxon, Tyce, and Kaden; great-grandchild Kareem; sister Jean Miller; former wife Vera Perry, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
Edmond's memory will forever be cherished by those who knew and loved him. His legacy of entrepreneurship, musical talent, and community involvement will continue to inspire us all. May he rest in eternal peace.
