David Keith White, (54), of Glen Burnie, MD, passed away suddenly in his sleep due to natural causes on April 9th, 2023.
David, formerly known as Dave, is survived by his daughter, Alexandra Swann-White, his mother, Anita Bishop, his sister, Theresa White, and his four brothers, Frank, Michael, Scott, and Christopher White. To Dave, family wasn’t just blood. It was those people who love and support you no matter what, by your side through thick and thin. He is also survived by Jennifer, Frank, and Kiersten Lamke, along with many extended family members, friends, and his granddog CoCo.
David was born on November 2nd, 1968 in Glens Falls, New York. David played numerous sports in his childhood including Track & Field and Wrestling. His passion for fitness continued into his adulthood, where he spent a lot of his time in the gym or for some years, at jiu-jit-su or bowling. Originally from New York, Dave made his way to Maryland, when his brother, Michael, came to Fort Meade Military Base in the early 90’s. Over some time, Dave started working for a landscaping company, while also working nights at the bowling alley, when he realized a true passion for landscaping. In 1999, Dave started his own landscaping company, Touch of Green. For the last 24 years, David has grown his business, helping support the community in any way he can. Anyone who knew Dave, knew how hard working and dedicated he was to his work.
When he wasn’t working or spending time at the gym, Dave was eating. He loved dining out at his favorite restaurants, one of his all time favorites being Honey Bee Diner, where you more than likely could find him several days of the week. At times, he even had a schedule on which restaurants to eat at, on different days of the week, for the best deals. Dave would go eat with his daughter, close friends, or even by himself, but best believe he never missed a meal. He also had a passion for poker. He loved playing cards at the legion, house games with his friends, and at the casino.
When you first meet David, he may come off as the quiet guy, but once you got to know him, you realized how much he loved to talk and would be there to help whenever you needed him. David’s personable impressions created unforgettable impacts on the ones around him. Taking care of the ones he loved and creating friendships that lasted a lifetime, he will truly be missed.
There will be a Service / Celebration of Life for David at Community Gospel Church in Orchard Beach on Friday, April 21, 2023 at 6:00 PM.
