Johnny White was born on January 18, 1932 and passed away on December 24, 1977 he was one hell of a racecar driver.

He was born in Warren, Michigan, he died in Indianapolis, Indiana. He drove in the USAC Championship Car series, racing in the 1963 and 1964 seasons, with 11 career starts, including the 1964 Indianapolis 500. He finished in 4th place at the 1964 Indianapolis 500, which earned him Rookie of the Year.

Johnny Whites career came to an end on June 7, 1964, when he was paralyzed from the neck down after flipping his sprint car and rolling along the top of the guard rail at the Terre Haute Action Track. Over the years the injuries that Johnny received eventually took a toll on his overall health, resulting in his death on Christmas Eve, 1977.

He left behind two beautifully daughters and three boys there names were Cindy, Sandra , Jimmy, Jackie , and Jerry . My grandmother Shirley May Parris passed away on August 20, 2013 . She was my best friend may she rest and watch over all of her friends and family and may she walk and hold hands with my Grandpa Johnny once again !
