James Ray White, 56, of Elyria, died Wednesday, December 28, 2022, in Elyria, Ohio, with his family by his side. He was born November 2, 1966 and attended Avon Lake High School.
James worked at The Rock Pile of Avon Lake for 9 years where he served as Assistant Manager, and was described by his dear friend and supervisor, Dave Borer, as his “right arm.” He enjoyed racing his beloved Ford Mustang GT at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, spending time with his many friends who say he was always there when you needed him, and most importantly, being with his kids and grandkids.
James is survived by his son, Matthew (Laura) of Elyria; daughters, Heather (Dave) of Akron and Samantha (Bryan) of Grafton; granddaughter, Kallie; and grandsons, Shea, Wyatt and Cooper; and nieces and nephews, all of whom brought him incredible joy; mother, Joyce (nee Mullins) of Elyria; brother, Tim (Beverly) of Indianapolis; sisters, Vickie Bell (Jeff) of Akron and Brenda Labadie of Ingleside, Texas.
He was preceded in death by his father, Earl Richard White.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
Arrangements are in the care of Wyers-Bollinger Funeral Chapel in Elyria.
