Jesse “Ernie” White was born on November 22, 1944 in Spencer, Indiana to Chester and Naomi White. He passed very unexpectedly on August 8, 2020 at the age of 75. Ernie was full of wisdom, laughter, and generosity. He was an incredible father, a loving sibling, a true friend, and an amazing person overall.
He spent 20 proud years in the Navy, during which he received several awards and honors for his service. After his retirement from active duty, he continued to work in civil service for 29 years, retiring at the age of 66. He travelled the world during his career, and spent his final years in Sacramento, CA, enjoying time with those he loved.
Ernie was preceded in death by his parents in 2013, and his wife Sally Ann White in 2008. He is survived by his daughter Jessica Ann White, brothers Jerry White and Stacey White, sisters Bonnie Fulk, Judi Christenberry, Jane Sipe, and Susie White, and an extended family of countless friends and loved ones.
The impact he had on our lives will never be forgotten. He will continue to live through our memories and in our hearts forever.
Ernie was cremated and brought home on August 26th. Services for him will be postponed until a better time, however some of his ashes will be placed at the VA Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, CA for those who would like to visit in the future.
