Shalom M.C. White, 28, was born on March 6, 1993, in Galesburg, Illinois. He went home to be with The Lord, on April 18, 2021, while sleeping peacefully in his home in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
His family was very important to him and he always reminded them of his love. His surviving parents are Monroe & Rita White of Central Florida; his siblings; Shemaiah, Regina, Johanna and Gabriel; his paternal grandparents; Monroe Sr. & Betty White. Honorable mention is given to numerous beloved aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Herbert & Juanita Garnes of Illinois have preceded him in death.
As a youth, he received Jesus Christ into his life and continued to share God's love and light with the lives he has touched. Throughout his earthly years, he always felt at home in the church. He especially enjoyed doing evangelistic work. Mostly, he would work in the church's music and sound department.
He was outgoing and never knew a stranger. He once said that he carried a deep sense of compassion and empathy for others and he knew it was The Lord working through Him. He was blessed with a welcoming smile, an ingratiating manner and a hearty laugh that would sometimes follow one of his own jokes.
He enjoyed swimming, playing tennis and organized football, weight training, music and more. During high school, he was a trumpeter at Winter Park. After graduating, He decided to start honing his attention to detail and creativity by enrolling at Valencia College, where he earned credit towards a degree in the field of Engineering.
He was a valued employee at FedEx. His most recent interest was his dedication to LuXtstudio/Model With Purpose (MWP) and colleagues.
Funeral services will begin at 11:30 am on Saturday, May 1, 2021 at First Baptist Church of Longwood, 891 E. State Road 434, Longwood, Florida 32750 with Pastor Duane Broom officiating. Visitation will precede the service at the church from 10:30 am – 11:30 am.
