To assist his recovery, his attorney elicited memories from White and authored a subsequent biography Make it Count that was released in 2012. White died in Boston on 16 January 2018, aged 71, from complications of his dementia, specifically pneumonia, which was brought on when he had a benign brain tumour removed.
