Death

On the morning of December 26, 2004, White was rushed from his home in Cornelius, North Carolina to a nearby hospital in Huntersville, North Carolina, where he was pronounced dead.

Controversy

White's retirement was not without controversy. He created a stir in March of 1998 with his comments before the Wisconsin state legislature that invoked positive racial stereotypes of Latinos, Asians, whites, blacks, and Native Americans, explaining that all were made in God's image. Consistent with his fundamentalist understanding of Biblical doctrine and his religious beliefs, he made remarks about gays and lesbians, and subsequently became an ally of organizations opposed to homosexuality, appearing in a newspaper advertising campaign to convince gays and lesbians that they could "cease" their homosexuality. Homosexual-rights organizations opposed his remarks but defended his right to speak out.[citation needed] In addition, both the Green Bay Packers and the NFL objected to the ads, since White had appeared in his football uniform without the consent of the team or the league. Later versions of the ad removed the uniform. Image File history File links Information_icon. ...

Confusion arose after his death over media allegations that White had abandoned Christianity and was studying Judaism.
