Born in Albany on January 9, 1954, he was the son of the late E. Herbert Sr. and Anna Mae (Morrison) White.
Mike was a Smart TD Local 212 member working for CONRAIL and retired from CSX Transportation in 2014 after a dedicated career based at the Selkirk Yard. He was also a lifetime member of the Sons of the American Legion, Post 1040. Mike tended bar at multiple venues in the region and often donated his time to serve at special events. He enjoyed trips to Las Vegas, NASCAR and frequently attended horse and auto racing as well as spent a lot of time at Gochee’s Garage.
Mike was predeceased by his granddaughter Kennedy and siblings Sharon (White) Martinez, Ethel (White) Cullen, and Robert White.
He is survived by his son, Jason White; grandson Carson White; sibling, E. Herbert White Jr. (Jean) of Schenectady; and many nieces and nephews.
