On February 7, 2020, the beloved husband of Cora Williams and father of Todd and Angela Rogers, passed away peacefully after a very full and exciting life.

He was one of 7 children, the Honorable Frank Howard White, Rev. Clifford Matthews, Lt. Col. Ralph L. White, Jean Miller, Julia Ann Lacey and Edmond White. Ken had a stellar career. He held several executive positions in Corporate America, both domestically and abroad, the U.S. Army, various high-level Government appointments and in recent years served as Executive Vice President and co-owner of the Ideal Electric Supply Corporation, a vocation that he shared with his loving wife Cora. He is survived by three siblings, two children, two grandchildren and several great-grandchildren. He was a long time Virginia resident, an avid golfer, extensive traveler and an all-around renaissance man. He graduated with high academic honors from Florida A&M in 1962, where he was the saxophone section leader in the world-renowned Marching 100 Rattlers.
