Donald White

May 21, 1949 — September 3, 2022

Hanover

Donald Leigh White of Hanover Ma (born May 21, 1949) passed into rest suddenly after battling Parkinson’s and Myasthenia gravis for 2 years. He is survived by his wife, Lynn Anne (Schuttauf) White, 3 sons, Reverend Derek White of Foxboro, Andrew White (current CEO of D&B Logistics) of Ft Myers and Keith White (Owner and artist Squids Ink) of Whitman and their wives, Carolyn, Jeannie, and Brittany. He adored his 5 precious grandchildren, Silas, Levi, Seamus, James, and Oona White. He is also survived by his brother Richard Lloyd White of Braintree, his wife Linda, many nephews and nieces and their children.

Don grew up in E. Weymouth, and attended Weymouth High School (class of 1967). He studied math and physics at Eastern Nazarene College where he was involved in installing and operating the first college computer, an IBM 1130. Later he established his own data processing and freight auditing company, D&B Logistics, originally located in Hanover. Recently he retired as CEO and chief auditor due to his illnesses. Don served on many committees and councils in the Town of Hanover including the Finance Advisory Board, technology committee, by-law committee as well as serving as advisor to many projects.

The real love of his life was flying, which he pursued for over 4 decades, getting his private pilot’s license and joining the South Shore Flying club. His travels took him over the Hudson, across the Bay of Fundy, and through a tropical storm to Bermuda in a Cessna 170.

Don was an active member of the First Congregational Church of Hanover, videotaping the services and helping with technology issues until he became very ill. He traveled to Haiti on a mission trip with the church one year after the devastating earthquake to build Rubble Houses.
