Former Steeler Dwight White dies
Friday, June 06, 2008
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Former Steelers defensive end Dwight White, 58, has died. Mr. White had surgery and then had been re-hospitalized last week.

Mr. White was a member of the Steel Curtain, the defensive line that helped lead the Steelers to four Super Bowl titles in the 1970s.

Funeral services are scheduled for Wednesday at noon at Calvary Episcopal Church, 315 Shady Ave. in Shadyside.

Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney issued the following statement today:

"Dwight White was one of the greatest players to ever wear a Steelers uniform. . . . Dwight refused to be denied, as was evidenced when he walked out of the hospital with pneumonia to play in Super Bowl IX and had an outstanding game, scoring our first points by sacking Fran Tarkenton for a safety.

"Dwight will be remembered by those who knew him even more for being a wonderful and caring person. He was committed to the city of Pittsburgh and was always willing to lend a helping hand to those less fortunate than himself. Our prayers go out to his family. We will miss Dwight, but we will never forget everything he meant to the Steelers organization."

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Dwight's memory be sent to The August Wilson Center of African American Culture at 425 Sixth Ave., Suite 1750, Pittsburgh 15219.
