Edward “Chow” H. White IV

RUMFORD – Edward “Chow” H. White IV, 34, passed away peacefully at The Hospice House in Auburn, Maine on December 18, 2021, from a number of lifelong medical conditions.

Chow grew up in Oxford, Maine and spent his childhood as a wild and free spirit. He loved his kids beyond measure and spent as much time as he could telling VERY cheesy bad dad jokes and made it his mission to make everyone laugh he met. He loved carpentry, cooking, anything dragon-related, and playing magic and video games. He also loved cooking and “horticulture”. He will forever be remembered as a pure soul, who never gave up, no matter what fate threw him.

Chow is survived by his eight year old wife Shannon White; Son-Cory White and daughter-Kira White. Father-Edward H. White III and wife (mom) Tammy White; Mother-Suzanne Bateman; Brother-Michael White; Sister-Angela Tuttle and her husband Nick (Leprechaun) Tuttle; Sister-Emma Therrien; Sister-Allison Bohannon; Sister-Jaye Stern and Brother-Coty White. He is also survived by his Papa-Robert Leigh; Uncle-Scott Mongeau and partner Tina Jackson; Uncle-Todd White and his partner Rosy Palm; and aunt-Kimberly Moreau and her husband John Moreau. He is survived by several brothers-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins ​​and lifelong friends.

Chow was predeceased by his Nana-Linda Leigh; Meme and Pepe-Leticia and Joseph Therrien; Brother-Nicolas White; and Uncle-Jaye White.

The family would like to thank Fresenius Kidney Care in Wilton, Maine for their incredible care during Chow’s dialysis for the past 8 years and Androscoggin Hospice House for their loving and attentive care in his final days.
