Obituary of Dennis James White

Dennis James White Sr. unexpectedly went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, February 26, 2022, at the age of 53. Dennis was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey on June 10, 1969, to Paulette White and Dennis Barker. Dennis attended Atlantic City Public Schools and graduated from Atlantic City High in 1980. It is there where he met his wife and life-long partner and began his family. They were married on June 12, 1999. Dennis loved to play basketball during his elementary and high school years. He attended culinary school and briefly worked at the Hard Rock Casino. His favorite football team was the Philadelphia Eagles. He watched every football game faithfully. He loved to listen to music and spend time with his family. His best times were when family would come over for summer barbecues in the backyard. Dennis also enjoyed spending time sitting on his front porch enjoying a beautiful day while sipping KoolAid and speaking to those passing by -- bringing a little joy to their day. The highlight of his life was his lifelong partner and wife of almost 23 years. When you saw Dennis, you saw Thasalonica on his arm. Dennis ensured there was nothing that Thasalonica wanted. Dennis was a model husband and provider for his family. In fact, he made sure that at every family gathering and cookout, he made his way around to greet everyone and made sure they were comfortable. He always made sure his plate was put to the side for later. The time shared and memories created will last forever. Dennis is predeceased: by his mother, Paulette White; father, Dennis Barker; daughter, Denise White; and son, Dafiq Rasheed. He leaves to cherish his fondest memories: his loving wife, Thasalonica Cooper-White of Atlantic City; his children, Tashika Cooper of Absecon, New Jersey, Dennis White Jr., and Destiny White of both Atlantic City, NJ; his siblings, Tiana Barker of Baltimore, Maryland, Reggie White of Galloway, New Jersey, Tammie White, Nicole White, and Calvin White, all of Atlantic City, and Niquolas White of Lindenwold, NJ; his granddaughters, A'Nai Cooper-Prevard and A'Zhuri White; his aunts, Loretta White of Pleasantville, New Jersey, Debbie White of Mays Landing, New Jersey and Carolina Braithwaite of Smithville, New Jersey; his mother-in-law, Edith Cooper-Speller of Absecon, NJ; his best friend/caregiver, Larry "Naim" Turner; and a host of other loving relatives and friends. Lovingly submitted, The White Family Funeral services will be 11AM, Saturday, March 5, 2022, Second Baptist Church, 110 Dr. I. S. Cole Plaza, Atlantic City, where friends may call from 10AM. Interment to follow in Atlantic City Cemetery, Pleasantville. Arrangements entrusted to Greenidge Funeral Homes, Atlantic City, where condolences may be left at www.greenidgefuneralhomes.com.
