Obituary of Keith Britt
On May 14, 2023, Keith Alonzo Britt (62) passed away after a valiant battle with Melanoma. In spite of his diagnosis, Keith lived every day to its fullest, and never let his diagnosis define him. He was a devoted Husband, Father, Papa, Brother, Uncle, Nephew, and Friend. Words cannot express the true impact that he had on the lives of others. He will be remembered for his dedication to his family, love for laughing (Being a Top-Notch Jokester) and brightening others' day.
He was born in Tampa, Florida on Mother’s Day, May 13, 1961, to Sandra and Alonzo James (A.J.) Britt. Keith graduated from Chamberlain High School and was employed as a sub-contractor for flooring installation. In 1985 he met his wife, Mary Jane (Miller) and started a 32+ year career with the USPS. Keith and M.J. were blessed with two children Courtney Frances, and Michael James. He showed his love and dedication to his family on a daily basis. He was an integral part of their lives, as well as supported them in all endeavors. He never missed a softball, baseball or soccer game and attended every dance recital and horse show.
He loved the outdoors, and every family vacation was spent at the beach or in the mountains. Most recently, Keith and M.J. went to Alaska where they explored his dream destination and even hiked a glacier. Keith was an avid hunter and every fall and winter you would find him at Shiloh hunt camp in Georgia. He never missed an opportunity to go fishing with his buddies. He loved to work in the yard, and was complimented by friends and strangers alike.
Keith was preceded by his parents, Sandra and A.J. Britt. He is survived by his wife M.J., children Courtney and Michael, grandson Clark, Brothers Jeff (Kim) & David, nieces Christine Hammond, Jessica Sellers, Lauren Levi, and nephew Caleb Britt.
In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations to be made to the Melanoma Research Alliance, 730 15th Street NW, Washington, DC 20005 and/or St. Jude's Children's Hospital, 501 St, Jude's Place, Memphis, TN 38105 in memory of Keith, and his love for others undergoing the hardship of a cancer diagnosis.
