Mark Edward White

Mark Edward White passed away unexpectedly at his home Sept. 17, 2018. He was 53.  Mark was born in Virginia Beach.  He was the son of the late Elswood and Rose White.

Mark spent his childhood years throughout Dare and Currituck counties. Always inquisitive, he loved tinkering and eventually started his own successful small engine repair company based in Manteo.  Besides engine work, Mark acquired several local properties which he developed and managed. A gentle spirit, Mark most enjoyed spending solitary time at home and spoiling his grandchildren whom he adored.

White (Shirley) of Utah; Michael T. White (Donna) of New Hampshire; one sister, Karen R. Walker (Joel) of Florida and many in-laws, extended family members and loyal friends.
