Danny passed away at his home on Monday, March 22, 2021, after a lengthy battle with heart disease. He was born December 14, 1946, in Lake Providence, Louisiana, to Daniel Buford White, Sr. and Mary Edith White. He was raised in Alsatia, Louisiana.
Danny was a graduate of Tallulah High School, attended Northeast Louisiana University, and enlisted in the United States Army National Guard. He spent most of his years as a resident of Tallulah. Danny was an avid golfer, enjoyed fishing, and, most of all, enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Danny is most remembered for his ability to bring a smile to everyone’s face with his quick wit, gift for telling jokes, and his ability to almost immediately “take the stage” at any family gathering or social event.
Danny is preceded in death by his parents, Buford and Edith White, and his brother, Benny White. He is survived by his two brothers, Marty Dewayne White and wife Lyn of Monroe, Louisiana, and Russell “Rusty” Lavon White of Tallulah, Louisiana; two children, Daphne White Beene and husband Todd of Tallulah, Louisiana, and Daniel “Dan” Buford White, III and wife Carrie of Tallulah, Louisiana; five grandchildren, Ethan Beene, Graham Beene, Ellie Grace Beene, Addison White, and Nicholas White; and 21 nieces and nephews.
Pallbearers will be Bugs Gilbert, Kenneth Smith, Mac Cagnolatti, Buddy Caldwell, Phillip Frierson, George Tweedle, Ronnie Deckelman, and David Cagnolatti. Honorary pallbearers will be Marc Grace and Bobby Todd.
