September 29, 1976 ~ May 28, 2017

Gerald Wayne White, 40, of Carlyss, passed away on Sunday, May 28, 2017 at his residence surrounded by his loved ones. He was born on September 29, 1976 to parents Lawrence and Sheryl “Mama White’. He loved to hunt, fish, camping, riding horses, and learned to build a shop and kill a deer with one arm. He enjoyed fixing and working on things, and loved helping others with their projects. He always had a helping hand. Gerald loved being able to coach his daughters in softball, and he was very proud of them. He was looking forward to coaching the little ones, but we know he’ll be guiding them from heaven. He was a welder by trade for over 20 years, which he enjoyed. He was a parishioner at both St. Theresa’s and Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Churches. He is a Cursillo and ACTS brother. Even in sickness, his faith grew which inspired others all around him. Most of all, he loved his family and his kids, and was very proud to finally have a son that he knows will be taught the things he would have loved to.

He is survived by the love of his life, Tonya, of 18 years, who was truly there through sickness and in health. Gerald also leaves behind his parents; one son, Eli White; four daughters, Chelsey White, Kaitlyn Hilton, Amily Domingue, and Kynlee White, all of Sulphur; 2 grandsons, Kylan White, Sylas White, and a grandson on the way; 1 granddaughter, Serinity Hahn; 2 brothers, Kurt White and wife Amanda, Mitchell White and wife Monica; 1 sister, Angela Cormier; along with numerous nieces and nephews he loved dearly. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, J.C. and Gladys O’Quain.

Memories Timeline


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss, Tonya. While I've never met you or your husband, tears rolled down my face when I saw the news. As you know, I lost my own dear wife to the same illness in January. It hurts to see anyone else walk this path. You'll get through this, but take my word for it, it's going to be harder than you may have thought. Keep your friends and family close.

  2. I hated to hear about this. I remember when you started hanging around with Raymond. Ya"'ll was always having fun and I think you was 16 and both wild but you both turn out to be great sons and fathers and husbands. Always there if someone needed you. Your going to be miss by all. I know you will be watching over everybody especially your kids and wife and your parents. Till we meet again gone to young but God had plans for you somewhere else. Rip Gerald. You were one of a kind. Helen and Danny

  3. So sad with the news of Gerald passing. We will cherish memories and good times with him. Prayers for comfort and strength for the family. R.I.P. G-Dog till we meet again.

  4. I am so very very sorry can not say I know how you feel I don't know how it is to lose a child but I know how it is to lose a very sick husband you know that they are better off but it hurts so bad.I would take all the bad things away just to have my husband back GOD BLESS he is with GOD My being knows this!!!

  5. Sending you all love and light in this time. Truly sorry for everyone's loss. Gerald was such a great guy and I enjoyed watching how close he was w his family. I will never forget the impact he had on so many lives from the day I met him. He will always be Mitchel Pauls older brother. A person doesn't truly pass as long as they are still being talked about. May you carry his memories and cherish them for a life time. My sincerest condolences to all of you; Tonya, Mitch, Kurt and family. Rest In Peace
