George Michael White, 86, of North Charleston, SC, husband of Doris Comrie Dann White entered into eternal rest on Thursday, December 27, 2018. The Mass of Christian burial will be held at a future date to be announced. The family will receive friends Sunday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm in the J. HENRY STUHR, INC., NORTHWOODS CHAPEL, 2180 Greenridge Road, North Charleston, SC.

George was born December 13, 1932 in Flushing, NY, the youngest of eight children of the late Richard White and Charlotte Fitzgerald White. George proudly served his country during the Korean War and used the GI bill to graduate from NYU. He then went on to marry the love of his life, Doris, in 1955. In 1986 George and Doris moved from Long Island, NY to Charleston, SC where George opened the Arm Chair Sailor Maritime Center. He earned his Coast Guard License to be a Charter Boat Captain. This allowed him to enjoy the beautiful waters from Charleston to the Bahamas. In 1996 George retired and closed the shop so that he and Doris could enjoy RVing and dancing.

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Doris; two sisters, Mary Clare Rose and Frances Morey; three sons: George White Jr., Stephen White (Tish), Gregory White (Martha); two daughters, Claire Horowitz (Ralph) and Dianna White (Darren); grandchildren: Gregory, David, Alden, Josephine, Shayna and Johnathan; and two great-grandchildren, Blair and Quinn.

Memorials may be made to Divine Redeemer Catholic Church Building Fund, 1106 Fort Drive, Hanahan, SC 29410.
