Eugene A. White Sr., born on September 8, 1945, peacefully passed away on August 13, 2023. He was the cherished son of Paul A. White Sr. and Elizabeth A. White. While rejoicing in his life, we remember his late brother Bruce White and celebrate his surviving brother Paul White Jr. (Carol Denise).
Eugene dedicated four decades of service to the United States Postal Service, from 1968 to 2008, leaving an indelible mark on the organization. His devotion to the Lord was evident as he actively engaged in the St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church community. He served as a steadfast deacon and lent his resonant voice to the Mass Choir and the Men of Valor male chorus. Eugene’s commitment extended to the spiritual growth of others through his role as the Superintendent of Sunday School for St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church and for the Cincinnati First District Sunday School.
Outside the church, Eugene’s heart was captured by his children, music, and his beloved U.C. Bearcats and the Cincinnati Bengals. His passions were deeply woven into his life, and he held his memories close.
Eugene’s vibrant journey began with football at Withrow High School. While at Withrow, he was also a member of Omega Kappa Fraternity.
His passions continued at the University of Cincinnati where he was a spirited member of the marching band and earned his undergraduate degree in marketing. One to never stop learning, Eugene later earned his master’s degree from Temple Bible College.
Prior to his professional career, Eugene served his country honorably in the United States Air Force from February 1965 to November 1968.
On August 13, 1977, he joined in matrimony with Pearlean Williams, and their enduring bond continues to inspire.
Eugene A. White Sr. leaves behind a legacy of love and strength, survived by his children Sandy, Rodney, Allison (Willie), Ebony (Clifton), and Brian (Amanda). His presence will be missed, yet his influence lives on through nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
In honoring Eugene’s memory, we remember a life richly lived, marked by faith, devotion, and love.
