Taji Samir Majied (formerly known as Gary William White) was born on October 12, 1951 to Marva Dolores Carter and Willian Henry White, Jr.
Taji graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School (Hornets for life) in 1970. He attended San Diego City College to further his education. Taji had great work ethics. He was employed by the San Diego Transit for many years, as well as several other jobs until his health began to fail.
In Taji spare time he enjoyed watching old westerns, reading, attending church, entertaining others, and listening to his extensive collection of music. Anyone who knew him knew he was a force not to be reckoned with on the dance floor when it came to his James Brown moves, which also landed him many first place prizes in dance contests, which made him popular with the ladies. Taji was quite the distinguished gentlemen, known for his infectious smile and taking pride in being the best dressed, no matter what the occasion.
On April 23, 2020 Taji closed his eyes and was relieved from his suffering. He was preceded him in death by his parents. Taji will be greatly missed. He leaves to cherish his memory daughter Monique White-Carter (San Diego), grandson Kevin I. Smith, II and granddaughter Kamryn L. Carter (San Diego); sister Regina Meals (San Diego); aunts Narriman Fields (Hemet, CA), Teresa White, Marie Austin, Doloris Mitchell (San Diego), Alice White (Menlo Park, CA), Mary Johnson (Palo Alto, CA), Tomasa Fields (San Diego, CA), uncles La Rue Fields, Shelly White, Ricky White (San Diego), Kenneth White (Las Vegas, NV), and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family and friends.
