Online Obituaries for the Clinton Twp. & Shelby Township MI Area

Christopher White of Clinton Township, Michigan passed away in the early hours of March 31st, 2017 at the age of 66. He was preceded by his father and mother, David and Thelma White. He is survived by his three children and their mother, Mattheuw (Candi) Biernat, Rhianna Biernat, Shannon (Jason) Maurer and Lynn Biernat; his brothers, Mark Lanier and Steven (Linda) White; his nieces and nephews, Jennifer Yuells, Carrie Alderson, Lauren White, Mark Lanier Jr., and David White; his aunt, Patricia Bell; and his cousins, Danny Beaver, Cindy Barnett, Frank Bell, Jane Berch, Carolyn Wehr, Florence Bell, Joyce Selva, and Bob Bell.

In addition to his children and family, Chris’s greatest passions were music and sports. His love of music was exemplified by his time in the band, Ozzie, and teaching his children to sing Christmas songs, which he recorded on cassette tapes to share with their grandparents and other family members. Many family members will recall with great fondness singing along with Chris to some of his favorite music by The Beatles and Arthur Alexander.

Chris never came up short on sports statistics, whether it was the win/loss of any major Detroit team or the final score of MSU’s latest football game. He was known to call his MSU alumna daughter, Rhianna, at half time to discuss MSU’s performance in the game. His love for baseball began early at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, attending a baseball game with his grandmother and he passed his love of the game to all three of his children.

With great love, Chris’s life will be celebrated on April 8th, 2017 with a memorial service at Gramer Funeral Home located at 48271 Van Dyke, Shelby Charter Township, MI 48317. Visitation will be from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with a service to begin at 2:00 p.m.

“Though I know I'll never lose affection for people and things that went before, I know I'll often stop and think about them... In my life, I love you more”
