In Memory of Bernie White

October 17th, 2014

On Tuesday, October 14, the New Jersey disability community lost a long time supporter and advocate. Bernard “Bernie” Lewis White, father of The Arc of Essex County Board Member Scott White, served as the Deputy Director of the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities from 1966 until his retirement in 1988. A true humanist, Bernie took great pride in improving the lives of those less fortunate.

The Arc of Essex County thanks Bernie White for his contributions to the intellectual and developmental disabilities community. Donations may be made to The Arc of Essex County in lieu of flowers.
