In Passing: Dan White

Past member Daniel Evan White passed away peacefully with his family by his side on April 12, 2012. Born in Vancouver, White studied architecture at the University of British Columbia. Early in his career he worked with Geoff Massey and Ian Davidson before establishing his own Vancouver-based firm, Daniel Evan White Architect, in 1969. Considered one of Vancouver’s finest residential architects and a proponent of West Coast Modernism, he produced an impressive body of work over the next four decades. Former colleagues, in conjunction with the Museum of Vancouver, are currently preparing both an exhibition and a publication of his work, targeting completion in the fall of 2013. He is survived by his wife Donna, daughter Zoë, and sons Evan and Sean. A service will be held at 3:00 pm on Friday May 4, 2012, at St. Mary’s Kerrisdale Church, 2490 West 37th Avenue, Vancouver. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in Dan’s memory are encouraged to do so to the Museum of Vancouver.
