David White

April 4, 1916 – November 27, 1990

David White appeared in dozens of television programs throughout the 1950’s (Peter Gunn, Father Knows Best), 1960’s (The Fugitive, The Twilight Zone), 1970’s (The Love Boat, The Rockford Files)  and the 1980’s (Cagney & Lacey, Remington Steele).  He appeared in classic films like The Apartment and Brewster’s Millions. But, smack in the middle of his career, he played the role for which he is most widely recognized: Larry Tate – the boss of Darrin Stephens – on all 8 seasons of the sitcom Bewitched.  He worked steadily on the large and small screens and on stage for nearly 40 years. White died of a heart attack at the age of 74 and was inurned with his son, who was a victim of the terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 in 1988.


Hollywood Forever Cemetery – Los Angeles, CA

Specific Location

Cathedral Mausoleum –  Enter the mausoleum and take the second left. Walk toward the end and David’s glass niche is on your right just before the last (Valentino‘s) corridor. It is instantly recognizable thanks to the bronze bust of the actor within.
