Jim White, Jr.

James "Jim" Wilson White, Jr. passed away October 12, 2020, on his mother's birthday, at Atrium Health in Shelby, NC.

He was born in Cleveland County to James Wilson (Jim) White,Sr. and Okley Chapman White on September 10,1940. He graduated from Shelby High School and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he was a proud member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. He worked in real estate and construction in Cleveland County for many years as a contractor for his company White Realty & Construction. He was the first President of The Cleveland County Board of Realtors. His passion in life was his cattle farm located in upper Cleveland County. He was an avid hunter and spent much of his time hunting wildlife. Some of his fondest memories were of his African Safaris spent with close friends and riding horses in his free time with his family.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his younger brother, Loy E. White.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 32 years, Marsha Henry White; children, Susan Elizabeth White and husband, Robert Bullman of Aiken, S.C., Margaret Chapman White and James Wilson White III of Charleston, S.C. and Laura Joan White of Connelly Springs and sister, Barbara White McLarty of Shelby; a granddaughter, Jessica Talley White of Aiken, S.C.; a grandson, James Wilson White, IV of Augusta, Ga and two nieces, Mindy Johnson of Winston-Salem and Mary McLarty of Greensboro.
