Dabien Lamar White

January 17, 2005 ~ September 4, 2022 (age 17)


Dabien affectionately known as “DaeDae” was born on January 17th, 2005. He was a lifetime resident of Gainesville and a Senior at Eastside High School, the graduating class of 2023. Dabien was strong but gentle, solid but fragile and very much a comedian in his eyes. He loved playing sports but football was his passion. He participated in ROTC for two years and was very dedicated to his job and teammates. Dabien was our Gentle Giant!


He passed away on Sunday, September 4, 2022 in the wee hours of the morning. Our Lord & Savior called him home and gave him his wings to enter the end zone into the glorious light.


He was proceeded in death by his maternal grandmother, Vivian Pressley and maternal grandfather Eddie Pressley Jr.


He leaves to cherish his life and many memories: his loving mother, Gabriel Pressley, and father Victor White Jr.; his brothers, Davonte Scott, Victor III & Kentrell White; his sisters, Diamond Mitchell, Aja Covington, Janiya, & LatanikaWhite; his paternal grandmother, Sheila Macon; his paternal grandfather, Victor White Sr. A host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and sorrowing friends.
