Obituary

Gerry passed away peacefully at his home on Saturday, February 10th.  He was the son of Albert and Regina White. He grew up in Haverhill Massachusetts and attended Haverhill Trade School.  

He worked a long and varied career in construction, textile manufacturing, motel management, and assisted living facility management.  In the early 80’s he moved to Dixfield, Maine and purchased a local pizza and variety store, renaming it White’s Pizza and Variety. He ran this successfully for 5 years before selling it so he could relocate back to NH.

After he and his wife, Elaine officially retired many years ago, they did the snowbird thing: RV'ing from New Hampshire to Florida, where they eventually settled back in 2000.  Since residing in Florida, Gerry just couldn't sit still.  He and Elaine worked at Ace Hardware together for a number of years and then his latest role was Floor Supervisor at D&E Hardware.  Gerry had been there for 18 years, since the store opened.  He had many regular customers who referred to him as "The Man" as he had an answer for everything and for every question.

Gerry was a lover of animals, particularly cats, then later in life he and his wife Elaine decided to give it a try and resuce a dog, and then there was Mia, their beloved schnauzer.  Gerry did everything in his power to make his two ladies happy and keep them safe.

He will definitely be missed by so many.

Gerry is survived by his wife and soul mate, Elaine, of 30 years, his children Brian, Mike, Bonnie and Charleen and her fiancee Wayne, his grandchildren, Daniel, Lindsey, Michael, Stephen, Lauren, Melissa and Nathan and by his great grandchildren, Natalie, Griffin, Logan, Aiden, and Avery.

In lieu of flowers, the family would greatly appreciate donations be made to his beloved wife Elaine.
