Benjamin Ray Franklin White

Nov 23, 1982 - Feb 16, 2024

location-icon

Urbana, IL

On November 23rd, 1982, Benjamin Ray Franklin White graced this world with his beautiful presence. Ben was called home and gained his wings too soon, too young, and unexpectedly but surrounded by those who loved him the most. Ben's mother, Barbara Turner, was gifted a son on July 7, 1990; a beautiful thing for her. He was a brother and friend to his siblings, Adreian White, Nathan Pettigrew, Jeff Hill, Shaquala Martin, Sharika Smith and Dane Williams; his Dad, Benny Williams; and, an abundance of nieces and nephews. Ben was the greatest at everything he did. He would say his proudest moments were being the BEST husband to Melessa Nehls, and father who lived his life for his children, Louis (13), LeRoy (12) and Raya (10). He excelled at everything he did, but nothing could prepare the world for how he'd excel as a husband and as a father. He was the best dad. Ben was an all-around family man, friend, and kept us close. Family was important to him and nothing gave him more joy (or tears) then spending time with his favorite people. Despite grappling with heart problems, Ben's spirit was young and pure, and he didn't let that slow him down! He was a chef, comedian, (OH WAS HE A COMEDIAN), a provider, an artist, and a rapper. Ben was a HUGE Bears and Bulls fan. Ben=Love. Ben's legacy as a devoted husband, father, son, brother, and friend will undoubtedly carry on. His warmth, love, laughter, and dance moves were extinguished far too soon. Yet, his spirts will live on in his children and all those who were blessed to know him. He was proceeded in death by his mother, Daisha Albrecht; little sister, Lanorsha White; stepfather, Perry Albrecht; and, grandparents. Rest in Peace, dear Benjamin. Your memory is and will forever be a beacon of light in our lives. A celebration of life will commence at 12:00 Noon February 24, 2024 at Leek & Sons Funeral Home 1215 W. Bradley Ave., Urbana. Visitation will begin at 11:00 am until the time of the service. To to the family or in memory of Benjamin Ray Franklin White, please
