Obituary of Hector Herman Pierre White
It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Hector Herman Pierre White announce his passing which occurred on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, at the Saint John Regional Hospital. Born in Bathurst, NB, on August 30, 1929, he was a son of the late Joseph and Amanda (Graham) White.
Hector is survived by his loving wife of 45 years, Solange (Caron) White; children: Pierre “Pete” White of Calgary, AB, Carl White of Darlings Island, NB, Tania Marie White (Dr. Brian Campbell) of Halifax, NS; granddaughter, Grace; and sisters: Theresa Lavigne and Rita Chamberlain; as well as several extended family members. In addition to his parents, Hector is predeceased by sisters: Mary White and Leona Roberts; brother, Ernest White; and brothers-in-law: Paul Lavigne and Gerald Chamberlain.
Hector loved working with his hands, even building a cottage, with Solange, from the ground up. He was an avid woodworker and gardener, and appreciated wildlife of all sorts, especially the birds that visited his birdfeeders. Hector was happiest while being outside in nature.
He was fan of classic boxing matches, especially any with Mohammed Ali. He will also be remembered as a fan of Johnny Cash. Hector was a kind, patient and caring person, and will be missed by everyone who knew him.
The family would like to thank Helen Blakney, Helena Hook, and Nancy Thorpe for the friendship and compassionate care they provided over the years.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Reid’s Funeral Home (506-832-5541), 1063 Main Street, Hampton, NB. A Graveside Service will take place on Tuesday, September 28th, 2021 at 11:00am from Hampton Rural Cemetery.
