Milt White

March 31, 2008

It is with great sadness that the family of Milton Arthur White, of Jordan, announces his passing after a brief illness on March 31, 2008, at Crouse Hospital. Born in Syracuse, he was the son of Edward and Gladys White. Milton was employed by the NYS Police for 32 years and retired as a senior investigator assigned to the North Syracuse station.

He also owned and operated a lawn maintenance business, C&M White Farm, for the past 22 years. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, horseback riding and spending time with his family. He was a communicant of St. Mary's Church, a member of the Knights of Columbus 207, Elbridge Rod & Gun Club, Weedsport Winter Wanderers Snowmobile Club and the Association of former NY State Troopers.

Surviving are Milton's wife, Catherine Muldoon White; three daughters, Heather Anne Wixson and her husband, Jon and their children, Ashley and Connor, and Catherine Murphy White and Colleen Marie White, all of the Jordan-Elbridge area. Also surviving are his mother, Gladys Blume White; his brothers, Michael, Gary and his wife, Michelle, and Edward and his wife, Kay; sisters, Jaqueline Rogers and Carolyn Dolan; as well as sisters and brothers-in-law, Mary Anne and Steve Brooks, Joanne Calescibetta and Jim Muldoon; and several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father, Edward White Sr.; a daughter, Lizabeth; and by his father- and mother-in-law, Jack and Helen Muldoon.

Calling hours will be 3 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 4, at Langham Funeral Home. Family prayers will be held Saturday, April 5, at 11 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11:30 a.m. at St. Mary's Church, Auburn. Private burial will be at the convenience of the family. The family has requested memorials be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of CNY, 913 Old Liverpool Rd., Liverpool, NY 13088; St. Mary's Church, 15 Clark St., Auburn; or to the Jordan

Milt was never with the Syracuse PD, but those of us assigned to CID frequently worked with him. We recall his ready smile, his professional skill, and mourn his passing.
