Another angel has his wings.  It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Chris White on Saturday, June 8, 2019.  His Pop (Dick White) now has a pool buddy, his Dad (Rick White) and Nan (Annie (Starkes) Hancock) have another card partner for 120’s, Uncle Ed has a pitcher for softball, and Michelle (Halliday) Brace has a cousin to torment her.  Watch out, he’s good at all of this, especially the tormenting.

Leaving behind with broken hearts: mom Nancy Hancock (Wayne Dunne), brother Matthew (Jo-Ann) White and niece Tilly, stepmother Susan (Walsh) White, brother Blair (Jennifer) Fitzpatrick and niece Caitlyn, brother Michael White and niece Neila, sister Renee White and niece Rhianna, grandmother Mary (Kavanagh) Johnson, Nancy Hannaford.

Chris was loved by everyone he came in contact with.  We could fill Mile One and then some.  He was our ray of sunshine.  “See you later”.  We love you.

Resting at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 1045 Topsail Road, on Wednesday, June 12 from 10:00am to 9:00pm.  Flowers gratefully accepted or donations may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association. To send a message of condolence, please visit

My Nephew Chris touched so many lives in such a positive way in his short time with us. He will be greatly missed. A huge hole left in our hearts will never heal, we will never stop missing him.
I pray he’s happy & in peace . In loving arms he will rest.
We miss you Chris every day.
Forever loved.

( each time we talked on the phone, I would say ” Hello Handsome. You would laugh & say ” Hello Beautiful”)
Chris, I will miss that, thinking about it now certainly brings tears sweetheart❤.
Rest well my darling.

Sending heartfelt Chris’s family.
I was out of town and couldn’t find info, so missed the opportunity to say bye, but did it on my heart.

My name is Deborah and I had the privilege of being Chris’s travel agent, if only for a few years.
In a word, he was a sweetheart and it was a.ways a pleasure when he dropped in to say hello.
His overall attitude was so lovely and it saddened me to think of him missing and in duress.
Whatever he went through, I pray that he has now found peace and is in the arms of angels and his Heavenly Father, where there is no pain or sadness.
The world lost a sweet, sweet man and I am so sorry for your personal loss of him.
You will see him again in heaven, I’m sure, along with the rest of the crew.
God blesses all who mourn.


My partner Stan and I had the privilege of meeting Chris in 2013 when we became neighbors. He always had something to tell us that would make us chuckle and was very helpful and thoughtful. More than once he would bring something to us that he thought would be useful to us. He was an all around great guy. We missed him when he moved and his death has hit us hard.
Judging from all the condolences and comments he touched everyone that had the privilege of meeting him

We are thinking of his family and close friends and hope that they find some peace and comfort from knowing that he was loved.

I knew Chris for almost 20 years, and it is no exaggeration the kindness he shared with everyone, whether he knew you or not. He was one of a kind and he will be missed by every person he ever spoke tt, and that would probably be in the thousands. He never knew my wife very well, but every time he saw her and went out of his way to say hello, and make her day brighter. Love you, buddy, until we meet again.

I met Chris in my younger years and though we eventually moved in different circles, there was always a smile and a hug when we saw each other. It always amazed me how smart and thoughtful he was, remembering little things most of us forget about our acquaintances like how many kids I have and even what age they should be by now. A day was always brightened by seeing Chris, his smile was contagious. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this difficult time.

our deepest condolences on Chris’s passing. We will always remember his wonderful smile and his friendly nature> We always enjoyed his visits to our store when he worked at Foot Locker in the Mall.
Our prayers are with you.

Hey Nancy I only just heard of the loss of you son Chris so sorry for your loss. Bart Bennett

So very sorry for Chris’s loss. Chris was a great guy who left a mark on everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Years had passed since high school when me and Chris met up again, my husband started playing darts with him many years later, he never changed a bit, still a great guy and we had a few laughs for sure. No matter where I ran into Chris throughout the years he always gave a warm smile and we had a great chat. Deepest condolences to Blair and the rest of the family. May you Rest In Peace Chris!

Nancy and Matt, so very sorry to hear about Chris. I’ve always had such a great respect for Chris’s energy, positivity, and tenacity. Chris could form a relationship with anyone and he was always reliable when needed. Nancy, I remember all the times we’d sit in your living room for a beer after Chris and I finished a shift and how warm and at home you all made me and everyone else feel. It’s been a long time since we’ve done that and knowing that I’ll never get to sit down with Chris again is heart-breaking. Chris was a loyal friend and family meant more to him than anything. The way his eyes would light up talking about his mom or the pride he had in Matt was so evident. Few people were such a light to so many without even trying. It was just who he was. Chris truly was his mother’s son and he will be forever missed and remembered. God bless you, Chris. You made a real difference.

Matt and Jo-anne. . Nancy and all Chris’s family
We can’t imagine the sadness you must be feeling from your loss. May the love of those around you help you through the days ahead.
Sorry we missed you at the funeral home

My contact with Chris was at Avalon Mall …Chris would make visits to our office and we’d have awesome chats over the years..then time got in between us.. I guess we just took different paths…my first impression was nothing but a pure and beautiful soul..he was an awesome loving person…..and that SMILE. Just infectious… There are few people who cross our paths and leave an everlasting and beautiful impression but Chris was one person whom I was so happy our paths crossed…..I hope he is at peace now and he knows exactly what major effect he had on those he met..hugs Chris May you rest in peace..always remembered..

Sending my deepest condolences to the whole family. May Chris Rest In Peace, his light in this life be remembered and His smile will live on with everyone, always.


I am so deeply saddened to hear about Chris.

My thoughts are with you and your family.

Anne Hannaford

Nancy and Matt,
Chris was one of the nice guys. I worked with him many years ago in the Village mall at the store called Thrifty’s . Wow I loved those days, he was always smiling joking singing flirting with the ladies , I thought he was awesome! My condolences to you both and your families. I am thinking of you. Please stay strong and lean on your love ones for support, they will help you through. God has gotten a wonderful angel…

Nancy, Matt & Family. My Sincere condolences on the loss of your beautiful Chris.

Susan and family

My sincere condolences to you on the passing of Christopher. May he rest in peace.

Chris was that rare person who the term class act truly refers to. It’s been more than 20 years since we worked together all over both malls but it’s very easy to remember great times, good laughs and a person of great integrity and character. It’s heartbreaking to know there won’t be another random run in when I visit home as they were always refreshing experiences I walked away from better than before. I’m very fortunate to have known Chris.

My sincere condolences for his family. He impacted so many in a pure positive way.

Susan and family
Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your son Christopher,, my thoughts and prayers are with you and family at this sad time. May he Rest In Peace .Sincerely, Arlene Power

Nancy, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t even imagine what you and your family are going through. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Nancy, Wayne, Brad and extended family, I was so sorry to hear about Chris,I can’t imagine what you and the family are going through but wanted to say my heart and prayers are with you all this week as you face this difficult time. May you find the strength to get through this and know that all of your friends out there are thinking of you. My deepest condolences.

To Susan & the White Family: Deepest condolences on the passing of Chris. May the prayers of those around you help get you through this difficult time. RIP Chris.

I knew Chris a few years back when he came to my nursing clinic for a good few months. I remember him as a very kind and gentle soul with a huge heart. He would sometimes pop back to my clinic with a tea for me and to say hi! Only took a few minutes of his time he would say but it was such a thoughtful gesture and meant a lot. I’m sure he will be dearly missed by so many and my condolences go out to all who held Chris near and dear to them. Rest In Peace Chris

I played pool with Chris in the Dooley’s Tuesday night league for years. Last saw him for the year end tournament June 1st….
I was shocked and greatly saddened when I read about his passing. Chris was a great guy, always ready with a smile , a joke or to chat about anything.. Kind, polite, a true gentleman…. to everyone. He will be missed by all. who knew him.

My sincere condolences to family and close friends. God bless.

It has been many years since I saw Chris but the one thing I remember is his big smile. There was never a time I saw him without it. His contagious smile will be missed greatly. I know how hard it is lose a family member. I lost my brother two years ago. A piece of him will always be in your heart. My deepest condolences.

I met Chris while in junior high. Through the years of seeing him both in and out of school he was always a sweet person. Always said hello and always asked how you were. He will be missed by many. I have many a fond memory of him from the days walking the halls at BJH and BHS. Last saw him at Old navy while trying to shop for jeans, we had a good laugh at that!!
Sincerest sympathies to his family and friends. xoxo My heart is heavy today.
Alicia Legge

There are truly no words to say how sorry I am for Chris’ loss. Chris was a wonderful man and touched so many lives in a positive way. I will never forget his bright smile and his “Hello dear, how are ya?” every time we ran into each other. I am devastated to know I will never run into him again. Deepest condolences to Nancy, Matt, Jo, Blair, Jenn and the rest of the family. Treasure the memories…they will give you the strength to get through this unbearable time.

Susan and family
So sorry for your loss . Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers .
Sheila Feaver

So sorry to hear of your loss. I have fond memories of Chris as my manager at Footlocker. He was a kind soul and always loved a pizza sub and Pepsi. God love him he will be missed by many. My deepest thoughts go to his mom and brother as I know he thought the world of you both. Treasure the memories.

Although away, thinking of all the family back home today. Chris’s smile was contagious. I worked with him a long time ago and grew up with his brother Matthew. I can hear him saying my love just like it was yesterday. I don’t ever remember Chris being in a bad mood, he just had that smile that would light up a room. I am so so sorry for the loss of Chris. He will be truly missed by many. Days like this make it hard being away and not being able to be there. Rest easy my friend.

My deepest condolences to Chris’s family and friends.

I still remember when I first met Chris in junior high. A true gentleman, with a big smile and a great sense of humor. We had some fun times. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Aunt Mary, Anne, Cass & Jamie,

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. May cherished memories of Chris bring you peace, comfort and smiles in the days ahead. Blessings to all his family and friends.

Matthew and Jo-Ann,

Mary Beth Bursey

Chris, you were always so warm and welcoming and you will truly be missed at work. You always knew how to make people smile and it won’t be the same without you. Rest easy my friend.

Condolences to the family. Certainly is a ray of sunshine. Meet Chris from the Village always pleasant nice to talk to. Bumped in numerous time just a couple of weeks ago at pet smart again as always pleasant. God has gained another special angel. Gonna be missed.hugs🙏

I only met Chris a handful of times at the pet store….but each time I saw him he would spend a few minutes chatting or telling me a story about “his girl”,(Lucy) as he reeled off his pictures of her-lol
Chris had such a warm & gracious way about him that was just so infectious & if it was a bad day for me (struggling with depression) after a brief chat with him I felt lifted, brighter & somehow just a little more hopeful… Thank you for those times Chris. You had no way of knowing…but you were like my guardian angel at times.. But maybe you know it now… Surely heaven is a little brighter tonight to have you in it.
God bless you friend & my sincerest condolences to all who knew & loved you.
Rest in peace gentle man. 🙏💕

I’ve known you for many years.I consider you a friend
We have had many chats over the years So sad now .I will miss them.Miss you.
My heart hurts tonight for you and your family.
I know you are at peace now and with that I can take solace.

Rest peacefully my dear friend !
My prayers fo to you and your family now as everyone

Nancy and families,
I am so sorry to hear about Chris’ passing. He was such a warm hearted person that always had a smile on his face. It’s been a while since I’ve seen him but remember so many fun times growing up having a “sociable” with him! You are in my thought and prayers.

My deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to all of Chris’ family and closest friends..Chris had just as many acquaintances as he did friends, everyone in St. John’s knew him in some way or another..there will never be another one like him that’s for sure, his star in Heaven will shine the brightest..he taught us all a lesson on how to be kind and polite as well as courteous to everyone no matter if they are your cup of tea or not..he was so professional at his work, and such an all around nice guy..we lost one of the good ones…rest easy bud..

I have known Chris a long time and had just talked with him a few weeks ago after not seeing him for a couple years. I feel blessed that I got to see him. I met Chris at a party in high school and worked with him at Randy River and Foot Locker. He was truly one of the best people I know and will be missed by myself and many others that had the honour to know him. RIP Chris and my condolences to the family at this time.

So very sorry for your tremendous loss. He seemed like a great guy from his obituary. He also looked like he had a kind face. Celebrate his life and cherish your memories. Life is way to short. God bless.

To Nancy , Matthew & families, we are so sorry to hear of Chris passing. He was a great guy with a great smile. He will surely be missed . Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God bless you and help you through these difficult days ahead .

I went to school with Chris and can say that he was one of the nicest, friendliest people you could run into on any day. Always a smile on his face and a laugh to be had.

My thoughts are with you all at this time.

Chris was indeed an all around very nice guy. A class act! My deepest condolences to his family at this very difficult time.

I haven’t seen Chris in a long time, but he was the type of person who was liked by everyone. A genuine people-person. His loss will be felt by many. My condolences to his family and friends.

Chris White, certainly a rare jewel that brought light to those who had the joy in getting to know him. We will keep that light glowing as we go forward and remember him as we speak his name as if he just stepped out of the room. Because the more we speak his name the more he will be remembered.
