Edward H. White III, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 10, 2020.
Born in Chicago to the late Margaret (Brazelton) and Edward H. White, Jr., Ed was a graduate
of Leo High School, a devoted member of the Leo High School Alumni Association, and proud
Hall of Famer. He married Mary Lally in 1956 and they eventually settled in St. John Fisher
parish in Chicago where they raised their family.
Ed touched countless lives through his many years as a youth basketball coach at St.John
Fisher and St. Thomas More. He eventually retired from the City of Chicago, which gave him the
pleasure of spending more time on the golf course. Most recently, his beloved White Sox
provided a real bright spot in an otherwise cruel year.
Ed is also survived by his children Sheila (John) Stachura, Lisa (Jerry McNulty) White-
McNulty, Stephen (Susanne Peters) White and Maria (Jeff) Lifka; sister, Mary Lou (Francis)
Donohoe; grandchildren Mallory (fiance Philip McLaughlin) and Lauren McSweeney, Andrea
(Michael Breier) White, John and Patrick McNulty, Sean, Caroline, Elizabeth and Brian Lifka;
great-grandchildren Rylie and Reece Breier; fond nieces and nephews; friends from Gleneagles
Country Club and Willow Falls Independent Living.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Michael (Helen) White.
