It is with great sadness to announce that Romulus Eugene “Gene” Britt went to be with his Lord and Savior on November 15, 2020.

Gene was born on June 25, 1953 in Wilmington, NC and graduated from New Hanover High School in 1972. Above all, Gene loved spending quality time with his family and loved ones. He also enjoyed collecting coins, taking care of the family pets, greeting the mailman every afternoon, and enjoying a large cup of creamer with a splash of coffee. Gene was deeply devoted to his relationship with Christ and attended church at Seagate Baptist Church, where he also sang in the choir. With his kind heart and pure soul, Gene never met a stranger. Every person in the world was just a friend he hadn’t had the opportunity to meet yet. He had an unconditional love for all people and always saw the good in everyone. Gene found joy in what he had, never feeling the need for more, and valued his relationships with the people that surrounded him.

Gene was proceeded in death by parents, Romulus and Sue long Britt and his sister, Donna Britt Greene.

He leaves behind his brother, William “Randy” Britt, his nieces, Christy Britt Bridgers (Mike), Stephanie Britt (Sheldon), and Amy Britt Newkirk (Charles). His nephew, Jason Greene (Katie), and Patrick “Joey” Greene. His 5 Great-nieces, 5 great-nephews and one great-nephew in the oven. Terri Harrell and family, “CB” Lewis (“Cricket”) and family, Susan McGuire, Pat Greene and all of his fellow members of Seagate Baptist Church.

The visitation will be held on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at 10am followed by a memorial service at 11am in the chapel of Coble Funeral and Cremation Service located at 1155 Shipyard Blvd, Wilmington, NC 28412. Immediately following his memorial service, Gene will be laid to rest at Oleander Memorial Gardens, 306 Bradley Dr. Wilmington, NC.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in honor of Gene to Seagate Baptist Church.

We were sorry to hear of Gene's passing. Gene was always easy going and for years was faithful to his church. That is a pretty good legacy!
