Matthew D. White
Matthew “Matt” D. White, 31, passed away on Thursday, December 31, 2020, after a brief illness,
surrounded by loved ones. Matthew was a beloved son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, and friend.
Matthew was born in Beverly, Massachusetts on June 1, 1989, the son of the late Gary D. and Susan M.
White (Dunn). He attended Peabody Veteran’s Memorial High School, graduating in 2007. Matthew
worked in a variety of jobs throughout his career, including service positions at Home Depot and Lowe’s
and, most recently, as a landscaper.
Matthew enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid sports enthusiast. He greatly enjoyed playing sports,
following Boston sports teams, and coaching. Matthew spent many years playing baseball in the
Peabody Little League and Babe Ruth League systems and was a star pitcher. Matthew really enjoyed
spending time with his nephew and niece, both of whom cherished him. His visits meant the world to
them and they always had so much fun playing together.
Matthew had a happy‐go‐lucky personality and a sharp wit. He could fill a room with laughter with his
