Adrian William White, Sr

November 20, 1973 ~ March 31, 2022 (age 48)


Adrian William White, Sr., 48, of Bemidji, Minnesota began his journey to the spirit world on Thursday, March 31st, 2022, from Bemidji, MN.  He was born in Minneapolis, MN to Sylvia Gale and Terrance White on November 20th, 1973.

Adrian was a loving father and grandparent.  A few of his many enjoyments in life; spending time with friends, being with his kids, and doing seasonal work.  He would often be known as the voice of reason in his friend group but would always know how to lighten the mood.  With his kids, he was the caregiver and knew what to say when times weren’t so good.  During each season, you could probably expect Guy White (his nickname) to be making ends meet doing seasonal work, whether it be ricing or bough picking.  Guy also had hobbies that included listening to music, chain smoking cigarettes, fixing his gadgets, or working on one of his many vehicles.  He will be missed by many friends, and anyone who got to know him.

Family that welcomes Guy to the spirit world are his daughter, Sylvia White; mother, Sylvia Gale; dad, Franklin LaRose; sister, Tammy White; brother, Terrance White, Jr.; grandmother, Helen Gale; great grandparents, Mary and Clarence White; uncles, Michale, Clinton, Melvin, Sterling and Phillip; cousins, Jolene Goose, Marlea and Julie Weyaus and many more relatives.

He leaves behind his children, Tara, Tamara, Danicka and Raven Sr.; grandbabies, Raven Jr., Frankie, Delilah and Nova; auntie, Cindy Gale; uncle, Stuart Gale, several nieces, nephews, cousins and other family members.

Wake services for Guy will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5th and continue until his 11:00 a.m. traditional service on Thursday, April 7th all being held at the Facility Center in Cass Lake, MN.  Allen Hardy will be his Spiritual Advisor.  Pallbearers for Guy will be Raven White, Sr., Cody White, Terrance White, Steve Richardson, Joseph Wakanabo, and Scott Bryan.  Alternate pallbearers are Tim Goose and Clinton Bryan.  His honorary pallbearers are all his children and grandchildren.  Interment will be in the Ryan’s Village Cemetery at Bena, MN immediately following his Thursday service.
