Howard Britt Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Howard Lovain Britt, who gained his wings on September 19, 2023.  He was born on February 23, 1951 at Dixie Hospital in Hampton, VA to the late Katherine and Herbert Britt.  


Howard was a lifetime resident of Hampton, VA where he was educated by the Hampton Public School system, graduating from Phoenix High School.  He attended Old West End Baptist Church where he accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior.


Howard briefly attended Norfolk State University where his goal was to major in Business.  He was a delivery driver for Anheuser-Busch for over 20 years.  Being an entrepreneur, he launched his own small business “BRITT NTRPRYZS”; he ran that business until his health declined. 


He will be remembered for loving a good backyard cookout, BBQ grilling, listening to ‘60’s music and telling crazy jokes!


He leaves to cherish his most precious memories; two brothers, Lawrence (Denise) Britt and Kenny (Juanita) Britt; nephews Timothy Britt, Tony Britt and Shawn Britt; niece, Tracey Butler and a host of family members from the Evans, Diggs, Nicholson and Spencer families.  


As we mourn the loss of Howard, let us also celebrate the joy he brought into our lives. He lived a very full life during his time here on this side.  As the “old folks” used to say, “rest in peace and we’ll see you on the other side with your crown of jewels”. His spirit will forever guide us, and his memory will live on through the stories we share. 


“Those we love don’t go away, 

They walk beside us every day, 

Unseen, unheard, but always near, 

Still loved, still missed, and very dear.”
