Nicholas David White was born to Ron and Nita White on February 17th, 1992 in Des Moines, IA and died at the hands of another on November 26, 2012. He grew up just outside Pleasant Hill with his siblings, Emily (whom he called Elomie), Will, Sam, Bryan, and Stephany. From the very start he was strong, determined, and loved by all. He began as a little boy with a head full of perfect curls who was always into mischief of one kind and another, and grew into a handsome young man full of potential. He grew up going to church and came to know Christ as his personal Savior when he was in the AWANA program. He was a gifted runner and won several awards in track while attending Southeast Polk High School, where he later graduated. Nicholas was also a talented artist with a gift for creativity. His works were passionate and full of life, just as he was. His bright smile and sense of humor were always welcome.

Nicholas is survived by his parents; his grandparents, Howard and Harriett Sloan of Carbondale and Bob and Virginia White of Runnells; siblings, Emily and Heath Hyder of Ankeny, William and Betsy Abbott of Urbandale, Samuel White of Vermillion, South Dakota, Bryan White of Altoona, and Stephany White; many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was a loving, caring son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, and friend. Nicholas was loved by many his entire life and will be greatly missed. Our heartfelt thanks to his many friends and especially Jake for being a friend to us all.

Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, December 3 at Capitol City Baptist Church. Funeral Services will be 10 a.m. Tuesday at the church followed by burial at Lowman Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be directed to the family.

DES MOINES (AP) — Des Moines police say a man found dead near Drake University is the victim of a homicide.

The Des Moines Register reported Tuesday that 20-year-old Nicholas White was found by his roommates Monday afternoon in their home just north of the Drake University campus.

Des Moines Police Sgt. Jason Halifax says investigators thought the death was suspicious because of factors such as how the body was positioned and the location of blood. An autopsy confirmed the death was a homicide, though police won't give details about the cause of death or when White died.
