Dale Clinton White, Jr., age 26, of Redby, MN, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, August 29, 2020.
Dale was born on January 13, 1994, in Bemidji, Minnesota, to Dale White Sr. and Margaret Gibbs. He grew up in Redby, MN, the oldest of nine children. He attended school in Red Lake and later earned his GED diploma. Dale is best remembered as a loving brother who looked out for his younger brothers and sisters and loved being an uncle to his nephews and niece – Kyle, Jr., Aaliyah, Kyrie, and Amaury. He enjoyed playing basketball and working out. Known as “Shorty” by his friends, he will be missed for his humor and just hanging out. Of all the memories of Dale, he would want it said that he turned his life over to the Lord Jesus and he was never alone after that. This was shown in how he encouraged others to have hope and to believe.
Dale will be greatly missed by his parents; brothers Joseph Gonzales-Rivera, Leroy White III, Jacob Henry, Michael Henry, and Tayvion Tre Whitefeather; sisters Flower White, Summer White, and Maggie White; grandmother Carolyn White; his nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles and other relatives. He was preceded in death by his brother Justice White; grandfather Dex Smith; grandparents Oliver and Darlene Gibbs; great-grandparents Abraham and Maggie Smith; cousin James Lee Gibbs, and aunt Ann Sumner.
A wake will begin on Monday, September 7, 2020, at 12:00 Noon at the Redby Center and will continue until the service on Tuesday, September 8, at 1:00pm.
