William Henry Britton, Jr.

December 11, 1961 — December 18, 2020

William Henry Britton Jr., was born to William Henry Britton Sr., and Gladys Zell Britton on December 11, 1961 in Dayton, Ohio.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Gladys Zell Britton and nephew Ril M. Beatty III.

He leaves several loved ones to mourn his presence, to include his father William Henry Britton Sr., and three sisters, Debbie Britton, Patricia (Britton) Thomas and her husband Richard Jr., and Henrietta (Britton) Middlebrooks.

He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews, Tawanda Beatty, Charles Middlebrooks, Andricka (Thomas) Atkins and her husband Harold, William Middlebrooks, Richard Thomas III, Rashad White, and a host of great nieces and nephews.

Mr. Britton was a graduate of Patterson High School in Dayton, Ohio. As a young adult, his adventurous spirit led him away from his hometown to live in several states to be near his sisters in Illinois and Virginia. After leaving Virginia, he relocated to New York to be near his parents and finally joined them and his sister in Georgia to live out his life near those he cherished most, his family.

The bulk of his career was spent with Mitsubishi for 15 years in Rantoul, Illinois. While in Rantoul, he also worked at the Army & Air Force Exchange Services on a local military installation. He served at Happy Hour Service Center in Warner Robins, Ga., where he was an adult caregiver for people with disabilities. He spent his last years as a dedicated caretaker to his father, William Henry Britton Sr.

William Henry Britton Jr., affectionately known as 'Junie' had a thirst for life, laughter and looking good. He shared this spirit with his family and friends throughout the years. To know him was to know fun and loyalty. He will be missed dearly.

The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." Deuteronomy 31:8.

At the family’s request, all services will be private.

McCullough Funeral Home and Crematory has the privilege of being entrusted with these arrangements.
