Obituary

Leon Patrick White passed away unexpectedly in the early morning of Wednesday, December 25, 2019, at Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital of Westchester Medical Center in Poughkeepsie, New York, following a lifelong illness. He was 55 years old. Leo, as he was known to his family and close friends, was born on Friday, January 28,1964, to Leon E. and Beatrice G. (Brammer) White, at Vassar Brothers Hospital in Poughkeepsie. He is survived by his siblings: his two brothers, Michael E. (Theresa) and David J., his two sisters, Pamela J., and Carol L. He was Uncle Leo to Jennifer Walters (Brandon), Emily DeLucia (Brian), and Michael Jr.; Joshua (Maureen), and Dana; Carmine, Bryon, and Joseph Casucci (Daphne); Crystal and Cassidy White; as well as fifteen grandnieces and nephews. Leo graduated from Arlington High School in 1982. He went on to study nutrition at Dutchess Community College. The loves of Leo’s life were his family, Rock and Roll, the New York Yankees and the New York Giants, and collecting sports memorabilia (not necessarily in this order). Leo was often described by his medical teams, members of his family, and close friends as a compassionate, kind and gentle man who never wished to “step on anyone’s toes”. Leo will be missed beyond words by everyone who knew him, but he will suffer no more. Arrangements currently are being made by the family. Donations may be made to the Dutchess County SPCA, Hyde Park, NY, in Honor/in Memory of Leon P.White.

Hi my name is Dan. I do voluntary work for Friends Of Seniors. I made many trips with Lee. Even though I'm pushing 70, I'm still a metal head and so was Lee. We had numerous conversations about rock groups and compared notes on different concerts we attended. Suffice it to say he's the only client I've ever had that I could have these conversations with. I'm also a big baseball fan. I never saw him without his Yankee hat. We always compared notes on team rosters. My trips with Lee were never boring. Thank you Lee. God bless you.

Leo, you've held a special place in my heart since the day you were born, when I was eleven years old. You enjoyed life so much, at least until you became ill. The transplant gave you more time to do what you wanted, what you enjoyed. You were a very funny individual, with a quick humor that I couldn't compete with, and I admired you for it. Since Mom fell ill, your life changed, and your suffering became more obvious. It's over now; you can rest. No more prescriptions, surgeries, doctor appointments, dialysis... I am relieved that you are at peace now, Leo. I am happy for you, but I am sad for myself and others who cared about you. Godspeed, baby brother. Always in my heart, you kind and gentle soul. You are finally free.

I will always remember Uncle Leo at 5 as he held his niece, Jeffi, so tenderly as we read stories. He really was a gentle soul in a body that failed him.. at peace now.

Leo will always be the love of my life. I've known him for four decades, we've grown up together and I will always cherish the good memories that we shared. He takes with him a piece of my heart.
