Lisle White was the oldest child of Albert and Bell White. He was named after his grandfather, Ernest Lisle Christie, who was a merchant during the early history of the city of Brandon, Manitoba. Lisle White grew up in Regina Saskatchewan where his father worked in a branch of Christie's School Supplies. He attended Trinity College School in Port Hope Ontario, and then Campion College in Regina. Lisle and his sister were well-known figure skaters as they grew up in Regina. At the time of his enlistment in the Regina Rifles, Lisle was working for TransCanada Airlines. He was a commissioned officer with active service early in the war and as an instructor in Calgary. His last posting overseas came in August 1943.

The Regina Rifles, including Lisle, landed at Juno beach on D-Day. After securing the beachhead in France, Lisle's unit continued to sweep through Normandy. The Rifles were ordered to capture Ardennes Abbey in the early hours of the full assault on the German stronghold of Caen. The Abbey was headquarters to the 12th SS Panzer Regiment. The assault started on July 8 1944 and casualties soon mounted. Captain White was one of the 36 men of the Regina Rifles killed.

During this time the Regina Rifles suffered several casualties including Captain White.
