James White, Jr. Obituary

Age 62, of Mt. Lebanon, surrounded by his loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer, on Thursday evening, November 16, 2023. Beloved husband of Heidi (Hallett) White; devoted father of Brendan, Colin, Eliza and the late Seamus White; cherished brother of Timothy J. (Maureen) White and Mary Ann (Richard) Goode; also survived by many nieces, nephews and a long list of very close friends. Jim prided himself on his love of his family, his friends and working hard.  He was married to his best friend, Heidi, for 30 years which kept him anchored in love.  Jim was a selfless father who showed his love for his kids in a thousand different ways whether it was driving to lacrosse games up and down the East coast, being there for every photo shoot before school dances, renting a house each summer in his favorite place Stone Harbor so his family could relax and enjoy their time together.  He loved his nephews and nieces and delighted in sharing his wide variety of musical tastes ranging from Irish folk, classical jazz to Lizzo, Taylor Swift, and Snoop Dog to name a few. He worked tirelessly to provide for his family and had an unparalleled work ethic. His reputation in the Pittsburgh real estate appraisal community was second to none. There were so many that Jim quietly helped in big and small ways. Most of us will cherish our memories and stories of Jim’s irreverent, dark, Irish humor.  We will miss him greatly, but we are comforted knowing he is with his eldest, cherished son Seamus. Friends will be welcomed at Laughlin Cremation & Funeral Tributes, 222 Washington Road, Mt. Lebanon on Monday, November 20, from 2:00-4:00 and 5:00-7:00pm.
