Darious Joquan White, 27, of Reigelwood, NC, passed away on Friday, May 21, 2021, in Wilmington, NC.
Darious Joquan White was born November 10, 1993 to Matthew J. White & Mimi L. Palmer-White at New Hanover Regional. He is the older of their two sons.
Darious attended Sunset Park Elementary School where he met and grew up with many of his Spirit Tribe friend-brothers. As a child, he played football, baseball, and took martial arts. He attended and graduated from New Hanover High School. His love and talent for music led him down the path of music production and playing in a band with his friend-brothers. His love of cars led him to collect classics, help his friends with car repairs, dreams of completing the restorations on his Nissan, and one day owning his own car lot.
Darious was full of life and love for his family and friends. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for them, always lending an ear and providing guidance. He was a shiny bright light, with a beautiful smile, and a heart of gold.
