FAREWELL TO SUPREME KNIGHT LONGSHANKS

Over the years KGB has had many come and go through various means. With a heavy heart, I can inform you all that Longshanks has gone to join our brothers in the final great adventure. Longshanks has been around since the early days of our organization and was a well respected and loved member and friend. He was currently serving as (F3) Vice-Chancellor of the KGB Crowfall faction. He will be missed and always remembered for his generosity, sense of humor, and dedication to his KGB friends and family.

VISTA, Calif. – Douglas Bernard White, of Vista, Calif. (formerly of North Haven and Waterbury, Conn.), passed away at the age of 53 on Aug. 30, 2021. His recent battle with cancer showed his courage in facing any life challenge with optimism and a smile, and stayed strong until the end.

A natural musician and songwriter, his great passion for music was evident when he played keyboard with various blues bands, including the Robert Crotty Band, the Derringers, the January Berry Band; and one of his proudest moments representing San Diego with the Lafayette Blues Band when competing in the International Blues Challenge, in Memphis, Tenn.

Doug also enjoyed all things extraterrestrial and paranormal, Renaissance fairs, hiking, and was an avid video gamer, contributing to the research and development of new games.

He was born in Waterbury, Conn., on Oct. 12, 1967, son of Bernard O. and Angela B. (Michelli) White of Waterbury. Doug was a graduate of Holy Cross High School (1985), attended the University of Bridgeport, and since 2005, was a software engineer for the state of Connecticut, Judicial Department.

Besides his beloved mom and dad, Doug leaves behind his sister, Bernadette W. Chura (Tim LaFond) of Prospect, Conn.; brother Steven Martin White (Patrick Doran) of Brooklyn, N.Y;, his nephews, Connor P. Chura (Sarah Brochu), Drew I. Chura, and Chase L. Chura, of Prospect, Conn.; his lifelong best friend and cousin Christopher White, of North Haven, Conn.; along with his many cousins, aunts, uncles, countless friends, and bandmates.

Funeral will be Tuesday at 8:45 a.m. from Chase Parkway Memorial/The Albini Family Funeral Home, 430 Chase Parkway, Waterbury, to the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for a Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery. Calling hours will be Monday from 4 to 7 p.m. at the funeral home.

Donations can be made in memory of Doug White to The Blues Foundation by visiting https://blues.org/donate.

Ah, I am saddened deeply to return home and learn what we feared was reality. Such an amazing person, in games and in life. Longshanks my friend, rest in peace, kick ass in the next realm and be forever you. This is a path we must all follow, one that can't be changed, only endured. Be grateful to have known him, for just a little while, and in remembering, give him a moment of your thoughts, celebrate his great attitude and trust that he would not want you sad and grieving over him, but rather happy and living your life as he did his.

Last day i talked to him was first week of Dregs first campaign, he said rep i am sick but it's not gonna take me today brotha

I told him make sure he was doing whatever they say about the chemo and the nurses, or literally go do the bucketlist of things before he didn't have that time left and well wouldn't you know he went and battled, i wish i had one more chance to say YO, but in the last conversation we had i made sure he heard me


Will miss my broher in arms! until we meet in that next world in a galaxy far far away

Longshanks was a guy who was easy to like. His battle with cancer did not change that. One day, when I have to face my own mortality, I can only hope to do so with the same courage and dignity that Shanks did. You will be missed friend.

Really well said.

I will miss Shanks greatly. He was always a positive person even when fighting cancer and a joy to game with.

Rest in peace my friend it was an honor to know you.
