Obituary for Mitchell Evon White

Mitchell White was born on July 31st, 1952, in Smith County to Evon and Mary Ann White. He graduated from Hazlehurst high School in 1972, and married his high school sweetheart, Joan White in 1973.
He was a beloved member of Pine Bluff Baptist Church for 49 years. He was ordained as a Deacon there in 2021 and was a Past Mastor of Pine Bluff Masonic Lodge #428 for many years. Mitchell was also a member of the Scottish Rite Bodies of Jackson and a Shriner of Wahabi Temple of Jackson.
Mr. White loved his church, family, and his town. He especially loved his grandkids. When you think of the epitome of a wonderful grandfather, you should think of him. From chasing us around with his dentures to telling us old stories on the back porch, he always made us feel appreciated. Anytime one of us walked through the door, we were immediately greeted with a “hey sugar!” and a smile. He absolutely loved his truck too. He loved it so much, he’d wash the paint off trying to keep it clean. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with his closest friends/brother-in-laws, Dude and Tommy.
Mr. White worked as Stone Container in Flowood for nearly 20 years as Maintenance Supervision, and at Continental Carbonics in Brookhaven where he retired. He also loved driving for Walt Massey.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Evon and Mary Ann White, his sister, Charlotte Rippy, and his oldest grandson, Clayton Kirby.
He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Joan White, his daughter and son-in-law, Christy and Michael Gallant of Denham Springs, Louisiana, and son, Dennis White of Dentville. He is also survived by his sisters, Elaine White of Brandon and Theresa Oliver of Hazlehurst, along with his grandchildren: Kaylen Herring, Preston and Pierce White, and a multitude of nieces and nephews.
A Service will be held Friday, July 29, 2022 at Pine Bluff Baptist Church at 12:00 Noon, with visitation beginning at 10:00 AM. Also a visitation will be held Thursday, July 28, 2022 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM at Pine Bluff Baptist Church in Hazlehurst, MS. Burial will be at Pine Bluff Baptist Church Cemetery.
